White with 1 February challenge

I am sharing a layout I made for the challenge over at

February challenge is - White + Brown + Vintage item(s)

Here's my take......


I started with "not so happy, not so satisfied" with my own work to beginning to like it when I started to add bits of things here and there, so yeah, I would say I like the end result.


The white background dabbed with brown dabble paint looks like a disaster to me at first, well, after I sprayed some vintage ink spray, it didn't look that bad after all


The sheet music is a real vintage item found at garage sale, and the bingo card, ahhh.... scrapbooking product vintage findings, is that how you called them?



Hop over to white with 1 if you want to play along with this fun challenge
