The 20 minute layout



She

Sometimes, limiting your craft supplies makes it much easier and faster to complete your layout because there are fewer elements to fiddle around with. 


For this layout, I challenged myself to use only black or white embellishments [to match the photos taken with my bloggy pal Lynnda when we met in Melbourne]. Once I adhered the photo and the largest element - the swirl, the rest of the elements fell into place quickly and I had this layout done in 20 minutes. :)


Playing along with the challenges at Skissedilla and Bird is the word.

*Edited* This layout was a winner at Bird is the word!

Seriously clever to do all the time it takes me to decide on a piece of card stock! But you made so right about limiting ourselves ...

Awesome! Love the limit of the use of products. If we all did this we'd get a lot more pages scrapped!

I really love the colour scheme you've chosen for this page. The black and white on the aqua looks fantastic. So dramatic and so fresh at the same time. So glad you chose the BITW challenge for your title.
