A little bit of Basic Grey to start off the week...

Welcome to a new week and to my first post here on the Scraploot blog! I hope you all enjoyed the blog hop that was held over the weekend.

In my DT kit, I was extremely fortunate to have the new Basic Grey Little Black Dress papers! They are a gorgeous range and super fun to play with.

With this page, I have used some of the lighter backs to the papers and incorporated the greys and blacks from a few of the main papers to tie it all together. I have used die cuts that match the papers in the top and bottom corners to continue the design and it's another way to not have to use all your papers and build in coordinating accessories from the range.

 I have used the journalling pen to trace around and highlight the alpha stickers.
I have clustered the flowers at the bottom corner of the photo and then added the flourishes. After inking the flourishes in black ink, I have added a thin coat of Glossy Accents.

 The top corner features layering of the die cuts.

To create this layout at home, you will need the following products from the Scraploot online store (click on the links and they will take you right to the store!)

Thanks for checking out the first post from the DT for the week. Keep an eye out during the week for the rest of the DT's exciting projects.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
