Well it appears that Black and White is back at the top of the list in the fashion stakes. So it’s no surprise that Scrapbooking fashions have mirrored this and Black and White colour schemes are the current scrapbook fashion trend too.
Now I’m not a trendy person. I find keeping up with trends to be exhausting and expensive, so I don’t usually bother. But one of the many charms of scrapbooking is that I can dabble in whatever is the current trend to try it out without making a significant wardrobe commitment and without any peer pressure on me to keep up. So it makes it kind of fun to experiment with a few of the trends as they appear.
So how do you feel about black and white layouts? I don’t mean B&W photos, but the whole colour scheme revolving around black and white.
I thought it might be fun to set up a Gallery of Black and White. And this can include scrapbook layouts, ATCs, cards, altered objects. The full spectrum of scrapbooking artistry.
So do something in black and white and post it on your blog. Put a link it to this post and leave a comment here. And I’ll post your layout (or whatever) on this page with a link back to your blog. I’ll keep updating this post with the gallery additions as they come in so keep popping back to check out the new contributors. Or get Scraps of Mind updates delivered to your Bloglines or Google Reader to make sure you’re notified of updates.
And if you already have a black and white scrapbook layout or card posted on your blog, by all means contribute that link to the gallery.
Here are my contributions to kick start the gallery.
The first is a card I made at a Hot off the Press workshop for my nephew’s 19th birthday. And the two below are a pair of ATCs called Old Mother Hubbard (on the left) and Nursery Tales (on the right).
And these two Black & White layouts are from Michelle of Scrappy Hours and her friend
And this great layout and ATCs have been submitted by Brigitte from Scrap Passie
And this lovely number is from Tink of Tink’s Tribulations
Janine from Angelic Ramblings has contributed this great scrapbook layout
I’m looking forward to seeing yours.
