Creation Station is Featuring Black and White

Being the first Sunday of the month means it's time for a Creation Station Blog Hop.  October's theme for the Design Team is to use black and white only and add one color.  My choice was to add Crushed Curry.  It's not your typical Halloween color but look how fun and funky it mixes with black and white-- it's spooktacular!

With the help of the coffin boxes I made this whimsical Halloween garland that will look super cool embellishing a black feather wreath hanging on a mirror in my entry.

I grabbed a few things that were perfect for the look I had envisioned for this quirky garland.  One, I have to have black cardstock and texture.  I had to use the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder because to me it is spooky and reminiscent of haunted houses.  Second, I had to have Frost White Shimmer Paint to enhance all the crazy textures in the garland.

I also loved adding the Ornate Frames to tuck interesting layers here and there.  They became just right for directing focus to the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes.  The last big detail I wanted to include were Crushed Curry doily flags.  They carefully are suspended inside the lined coffins and lend to the visual texture I was hoping to create.

Are you ready for some more black and white plus one color inspiration?  Martin Stone is next up in our October Creation Station Blog Hop.  Go check out his latest hand crafted, hand stamped, hand made project.
