White ... With 1 June Reveal

Here is my Creative Team layout for June 2018:

June is such a versatile colour, one of those colours you can use with bright or multi coloured photos, or one you can use for black and white photos. It isn't a colour that leans more towards one gender than another, nor does it lean towards any specific event, holiday, theme, or occasion. It is so versatile!

There is also a sketch that you can use for the month, but I didn't use it for this Creative Team layout.

And my layout again, with more detail:

Using a deer head silhouette I found on the internet, I pierced holes in the outline and hand stitched it using Space Frontier dark grey embroidery thread. I used a black and white photo, along with minimal embellishing so that the hand stitched deer head was the focal point of the layout.

The hand stitching, although lovely, looked unfinished to leave it completely plain, so I added a handful of dark grey sequins onto the antlers.

I matted the photo simply, first on a white patterned paper then a dark grey textured cardstock.

I stamped this deer head using a dark grey ink onto a pale patterned paper and fussy cut it. I added it to the page with foam tape for dimension, on top of a lighter grey doily ephemera piece. 

My journaling spot, peeking out from the bottom of the photo above, is also white and greys.

I finally used my dark grey thickers! There were many words I could have used for the title, but I wanted a word that spanned the height of my photo. I also added a mainly white border ephemera piece under/ along side the title and hand stitched it down using white embroidery thread - to incorporate the hand stitching on the opposite side of the layout too.

I did a strip of washi tape along the bottom of the page that isn't entirely necessary, but I will never have a more perfect page for it - as the washi tape is white with dark grey woodland shapes on it, including a deer head. 

I finished the layout off with a few punched hearts in two sizes, mainly in white patterned papers, and a sprinkling of the same dark grey sequins, to ensure the layout flowed nicely to the bottom half as well.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I do hope you will give this challenge a go. Head over to White ... With 1 to check out the sketch, all the creative team layouts and the challenge rules!
