White With 1

White With 1's March challenge is White, Kraft and layering... 

Here is my effort.

Unlike most scrappers I don't have any 12 x 12 kraft, I just haven't gotten in to the trend.  But I had saved a brown paper bag (one of my 'I-could-use-that-one-day' keeps!) which is kraft, right? 

I used the bag as my starting point and layered a few different whites on top and then added the photo.

Here are some close ups...

I used my take on herringbone stitch to make a pocket for my tag to go in.  And one of my layers of white is a leaf from a swatch that I dismantled.  I love the holes where the binding went.

Used a coloured pencil as close to kraft in colour as possible to draw a simple border.

My kraft journalling tag...                                                                                    ...and the other side.

Oh how I wish my handwriting was better!

Kept the tatty corners of the bag and the wrinkled, used effect.

And a small title, cut from the back of a paper pad, attached with pinflair glue gel for dimension.

I'm quite pleased for my first play with kraft. 

And I love that mood when you are scrapping and finish a page and just want to start working on another layout straight away.  Loads of ideas.  Good times!
