I recently saw a layout done by Julie Balzer that had a lot of white texture on the background and just a bit of color, all clustered around the photo. I thought this would be a fun thing to play with so when CSI had texture as one of the evidence prompts, I jumped at giving this a try! I'm not sure I really achieved what I was hoping for, and will need to play with the technique more, but I like how it came out. I like that the white moves right into the frost colored flowers.
For my evidence I used: flowers, texture paste, circles, embossed paper. My journaling pulls out from behind the photo strip, with the flower as a pull, and says, "Winter or Spring? It seems that this year we will have both! There is something so beautiful about pretty flowers covered in glittery frost.
