Monochrome

Hello Everyone--hope your day is going well. We are going to the cinema this afternoon to see The Quartet. Our cinema wasn't going to show it but so many people had asked if they would that they have decided to put it on in one of the smaller screens. It's nice to know that people power is working.

At Craft-room challenge this week the theme is monochrome. It was good to see what that really means as I used to think it meant just black and white but it can be any colour which is much easier for me.

Lots of inspiration from the DT and the entries that have flooded in already. Always lovely challenges here and a friendly team.


I collected together various brown papers and emblies and went from there. The round shape is one I made using crushed eggshells and the flower I painted with brown paint to make it fit in with the theme.

Nice to have you drop by

Love Chrissie xx

What a great "monochrome" project Chrissie. I haven't tried monochrome so I should put it on my "to try" list.
