OFF THE RAILS AUGUST CHALLENGE 2016:

This one is a beauty! Right up my darker alley, LOL!!!
You can use the OFF THE RAILS  mood board in whatever way it takes you.
I stuck with the black/white combo, then added a small touch of colour:
I don't often scrap my brother....but here he is. Typical 'him', too!
I've simply used a Sharpie paint pen on a black sheet of card stock & thought
up all the words & phrases that suited him.
 Once I'd done that, the page just needed some simple embellies & a few paper layers
to 'lift' the photo away from the busy bg I'd created!
The circles are all hand crafted...a few splashes of ink 'et voila'!!!
Hoping this inspires you to do something with black over at OFF THE RAILS this month!
Cheers ~ Lizzy xo

  1. So beautiful and artsy my darling friendie. Thank you so much for being such a faithful follower on my blog when I didn't have the energy or the inclination to do the same...and thank you for all the love that you left. I am back but cannot guarantee that I will not fall of the blogging wagon again somewhere in the future. It is hard to keep all the juggling balls in the air sometimes...and our "day job" has taken up most of my time and energy these past few months xx

  2. This is such a striking design Lizzy, I love it - and I totally thought that was a patterned paper in the background, it's so cool that you made that yourself with your own personal words and handwriting - what a brilliant idea :o) xx
