Monochromatic Monday...

Every once in a while I really lean toward monochromatic layouts, & I keep looking at this one I created with my Crate stash back in December, but never shared on my blog. 
I began this project by pulling out my ENTIRE Crate stash & separating everything green:

Some of this product is beloved Crate from their 2008 collections, felt awesome to finally use those final hoarded bits on a project!

I made a couple quick-quilled swirls using the paper strip that tells the collection info.

The bracket-border is the B-side of a Crate diecut paper, which I promptly splattered and smeared with spray ink and crackle paint!  :-)

Finally, I used some packaging chipboard, ran it through my diecut machine with some embossing folders, & painted them with distress ink and green & gold glimmer glazes:

When's the last time YOU created something with a monochromatic look?  I'd LOVE to be linked up to see your single-color creations!
