Black background at lasting memories

This weeks challenge at lasting memories is to make a layout with a black background
The last challenge posted Monday at big picture and I only have two more challenges to go before class closes on the 9th.  Still need to make  layouts focusing on product and embellishments

 Hope you had a chance to see the sneak peek and the left brain design challenge

Now onto my full reveal of my right brain design challenge. For the right brain challenge is to design a layout that uses at least three different shapes without making a visual mess.

   I used a creative scrapper sketch for some inspiration and then added to it.
The original sketch is from Creative scrapper sketch volume  #1 and is intended for a vertical 4X6 photo.   I did 3 smaller 2 1/2 X4 and used circle, stars and rectangles as my shapes.
flicked the white paint using a tooth brush.

Close up of journaling
"the jog-a-thon happens rain or shine, but this year it rained so hard that Danielle only ran for 30 minutes before they had to stop.  Just doubled the laps"
Hope you are inspired to try using a black background and joining us this week




  1. This is awesome Haven. The bright colors are perfect against the black. Don't you hate it when it rains on their parade?
