This layout was done for two combined private challenges: 1) 50% whitespace; and 2) use black, white and one other colour (in this case, purple). The photo is of my good friends. There is an expression that someone is a "ne'er do well." These two are "E'er Duells." They had their 15-year anniversary in August 2008. The layout is done in thier wedding colours.
I used a tearing technique, silk flowers, ribbon flowers, paper flowers, lace, ribbon, black and white buttons, purple heart rhinestones, a rhinestone flourish, and silk butterflies. (My mom cut the black flowers for me on her Cricut.)
