Project of the Month - Monochrome

Its that time again and this Month's theme for the Blog Hop is Monochrome and our host is Mina and that's is where the blog hop begins.
You should have landed on my blog from Arielle

We will hold this every third Thursday of the month , we aim to give you a little inspiration and hopefully a few Oooo's and Awe's along the way.
The Dream Team is made up with some of the most talented ladies so be sure to give them all a visit.
This Month my image is Paul Typing and he can be purchased here



I decided to add just a splash of colour to my Monochrome theme to give the image a boost most of the image was coloured with warm greys but I think adding the warm blue shade just makes it pop and gives it a bit of interest.

I made a little bedroom scene and added the clock to show he would be late for college I made a couple of exercise books too.

The design papers are DCWV.



Next up on the blog hop is Heidy so pop by and leave her a comment Once you have done the Blog Hop why not give the Dream Team blog a visit there are many more wonderful creations on there just for you inspiration the link is on my side bar.
