Supreme Scrap Tournament - Challenge 2

Hi everyone,

I am back with another post, to show you my LO for the second challenge of the Supreme Scrap Tournament.
This one, I must admit, was really a tough one, more so than I thought originally.

The rules were as follows:
Make a monochromatic colour layout

1. Pages:
2 pages Layout (double page!)
2. Theme:
You can choose your own theme
3. Colour LO:
The monochromatic color scheme you use is up to you
4. How many Photos:
 Minimum of 1 photo
5. Photos:
- One photo must be partly on the left and partly on the right page
- One photo needs to be black and white
6. Not to be used:
- You are restricted from using black anywhere on the layout including, ink, paint, pen lines, journaling or any other elements. 
- There is not to be black on the page with the exception of your black and white photo(s).
- You can not use brown to antique elements unless brown is the colour you  choose for your monochromatic colour scheme.                  
7. Materials you may use:
embellishments, inkt, media stuff, everything that you want in the monochromatic colour.

xxxmmmmm.... yes, quite a tough challenge, and I found these cute photographs of my niece that I took in January, and decided to scrap them with a warm grey!!! yip, grey! Turned out to be much tougher than I had imagined. I didn't have the exact shade I was after, so I mixed my own spray ink using some pearly off-white paint, some black ink and a touch of mahogany coloured ink to give me the warm tone.

I wanted the focus on the photographs, so I went for a simpler uncluttered LO.

So here it is, #yummy strawberries!!!

Some detailed shots

... and one last shot, just in case there were any doubts about the colours in the LO, 
a photo with pure black and white paper photographed on the background for which I used one of the papers from Dear Lizzy's line, 5th and frolic. I misted over the paper to get rid of the white!!

Let me know what you think & thank you for looking!!!!

Supreme Scrap Tournament - Challenge one!!

I decided to take part in the Supreme Scrap Tournament that was organized by some very gutsy ladies over here!!!!
The first challenge they set for us was: to make a double page LO, featuring at least 3 photographs, NO MISTS what so ever, and show them where we live, withing 1000 steps that is!!

This is my take on the first challenge.

"Kipseli by night", is what I chose as the title.

I live in the most populated area of Athens Greece, and I think it is much prettier at night, so, my photographs, document a walk down to a pedestrian street lined with cafeterias and restaurants. I used Echo Park "Here and now" collection. I stenciled with gesso over two areas of my LO to add some texture, and then only some stamping and empellishments were used.

some detailed shots

Hope you like it, and thank you for stopping by !!!
