Cafe Chicks

This year for the winter school holidays we took a short 2-night break just over the border... and it was COLD COLD COLD! I got some great photographs during our trip, so I couldn't resist printing a few to scrap this week.  I always find new photographs are a fantastic motivator for my scrapbooking (despite the mountains of older photographs that are still waiting for me to catch up).

This layout is based on the July sketch at Blue Fern Studios and the July Black & White challenge at Flying Unicorns:

I used BFS Tweet Friends chipboard. I painted it with several coats of gesso, then heat embossed with a clear powder to give a lovely shine:

I have to say, sticking just to black and white was really difficult, but I do love the result!
