Yellow Yogi Yalpha

This is my mingle page for Yogi for our July Mingle on the byhandartist group. I stuck with the monochromatic theme (hope I don't get "stuck" forever!) I had been toying around with a yellow theme for the mingle and was thrilled when Yogi was to be the recipient. The background is paste paper I made last year. I double stacked two sheets and cut the strips, then took alternate strips and pasted them to yellow-gold cardstock. Used a yellow printed napkin to cover the "Y" chipboard letter and added a little Jolee's sunflower. I mounted it with cushioned mounting tape. I wrote Yellow Yogi Yalpha alternatingly with Pentel yellow milky gel pen and a gold pen. The back has more of the napkin.

CBTC-black, gray and white

Create Byhand Tuesday Challenge

This week's challenge is to use only black, white and grey. My contribution is a vintage image (of my mother-in-law as a child) mounted on white cardstock. That is mounted on chalkboard patterned paper to which I added flourishes and some more number and word doodles. I printed the words out and added them. The photo is mounted with mounting tape.
This was a fun challenge and will also work for the monochromatic atc swap for July.
