Design Team Announcement At Black With 2 and May 1 Reveal!

Hello friends!  Today I finally get to share some exciting news and to tell my secret that I have been keeping to myself for about two months.  I am now a design team member at Black With 2! 

If you are not familiar with this scrapbook challenge blog, the challenge is to create a layout from the monthly mood board provided and always have black cardstock as the background, the monthly sketch, only the two colours stated, the image for inspiration and the monthly word in your title or journaling.  Please note that only 5% of the layout can have the colour white.  Below is the mood board for May.  The colours for May are soft grey and dark slate.

Here is the layout I created for the May Mood Board.  I used a black card stock background, the word living in the title or journaling, as well as several shades of grey and black.  

First I matted the photo of my son with corrugated paper and then I painted some chipboard from Creative Embellishments a light grey,

used some black and grey acrylic paint to make some splatters, 

added a flair button by A Flair For Buttons

and cut some borders and tabs with my Silhouette Cameo.  Finally I added a strip of Prima washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by and I really hope you are inspired and join the challenge.  To see the design team announcement and the other design team member's layouts, and the sponsors for May's prize, please check it all out here.  

 Have a creative day!
