Arrow IFC47:7/20/09 Color by Theme: Why White?

Hello Scrappers and welcome to our 7th and final challenge in the Color by Theme Challenge Series!

Why White?
Although white is sometimes considered the absence of color it sure can make a striking scrapbook page design.
The less-is-more rule easily applies to white pages (and I'm not talking phone books). Make a statement with a white design for any of the following themes:
❖Love (It's as pure as a fresh, fallen snow...a bit dramatic, but you get where I'm going!)
❖Spring Cleaning (White means clean-how ironic that it's also the hardest color to keep clean.)
❖The Holidays (With so many holiday hues popping up these days, white is the safest bet.)

The Challenge
Try using white as the main color on one of your scrapbook pages this week. You can try one of the themes listed above or use your own creativity and see where white may take you.
A couple of supplies that come to mind in my stash (and maybe you have some too) is white lace cardstock or white die cut paper.

Here are some absolutely gorgeous white layouts that I found in the gallery.

Glad you ladies like the challenge and for those of you that find it more difficult try to keep in mind that you can add some soft neutrals to the white to pull it all together. I was actually thinking of scrapping the photos of my niece's baptism, because when I think of God and Church, white is a color that always comes to mind.

Here is mine. This is one of my favorite pictures taken at my son's wedding reception. It was out side and they were on a bridge with a waterfall behind them. TFL
