August 2010 Beachiversary Crop Challenge #4

August Beachiversary 2010 Crop Challenge #4: White on White on White

The prize for this challenge is the Quickutz Letterpress Starter Kit.

The fourth challenge was inspired by both an article in Somerset Studio and the cover of Somerset Memories. I was first inspired by Rachel Emilie Jackson's "Artful Waxed Tissue Books" which were made from wax covered tissue paper. Sentiments and flowers were pressed into the wax, giving the pages of the book a light, ethereal look ~ almost ghostly. Then, when I was flipping through the pages of the magazine that highlighted sister publications, I saw the below image of the cover of Somerset Memories:

This inspired me to make a challenge where you can use only white AND NO OTHER COLORS ~ just shades of white, ivory and cream. You may use a color photograph on the layout and/or a black or brown pen to write your journaling.

Here is my take on the challenge:

To participate, create a layout using only the color white. The layout may be any size {12"x12", 8.5"x11", 8"x8", 6"x12", etc.} and can be either a one-page or two-page layout. This challenge also lends itself well to a card or other project.

Enter the challenge by posting a link to your submission BELOW by 6:00 p.m. on Monday, August 23, 2010. The link can either be to a photo of your entry in the gallery here, or to a video on YouTube or to your personal blog ~ wherever!

Remember that you have until 6:00 p.m. on Monday {that's Miami, FL EDT USA time which is GMT-4} so you have until then to submit an entry for each challenge. Prize winners will be announced Monday and posted on a new "July 2010 Crop Prize Winners" thread in the forum.

You will get one entry for each challenge you participate in, so get ready to scrap! The next challenge will be posted at 10:00 p.m. Miami time!

Life's a beach. Scrapbook it.

Here is where you post a link to your submission for the August 2010 Crop Challenge #4! You can link to the photo on the beach, or to the post on your blog where the photo is displayed, or to the video if you have done one for YouTube. Good luck!
