Zinia's Monochromatic Layout

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a monochromatic layout I created using the beautiful Shine On collection by Amy and American Crafts.

Monochromatic Layout

This collection is full of gorgeous colors as well as a bunch of amazing neutral elements. I decided to embrace the kraft and gold elements from the collection and create a monochromatic layout design.

Since most of the pattern papers are full of amazing colors, I decided to work on a white piece of cardstock and focus on the embellishments.

To make my background a bit more interesting, I grabbed some Mermaid Markers in neutral colors and doodled some rings around the page. I felt that the circles will match beautifully with the circular flower designs that are included in the collection.

I created a cluster of floral images on kraft paper to create a cozy bed for my photo, making sure there’s a lot of the design showing around the edges as I didn’t want to cover it up.

Then I picked some of the clear stickers from the sticker book and spread them around for more lovely details. I really love how the white clear stickers sit on top of the rings I painted with my markers, making them pop against the darker colors.

Other than that, I kept my design very minimal as I wanted to embrace the whole black and white/neutral spirit without added clutter.

Of course you can recreate this design with any colors you love but I’d highly recommend that you give these neutral elements a chance and allow them to be the stars of your creations.
