White on White Challenge

This week the challenge over at Beyond Grey is white on white.  Their sponsor is Whimsy Stamps.  Also putting this layout up for the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge and at purple mailbox.
I really loved this idea and have been wanting to do this since I saw the 'white weeks' for project life by Jamaica Makes and Vee.  Looking back at their archives, I see that they did this months ago, but the idea has been rattling around in my head ever since.  Now that I have done it on a layout, maybe I'll have the confidence to try it on project life too?

I cut the 'hand-drawn' circles with my Cameo onto white cardstock.  I placed that sheet in front of resist paper, that I had lightly inked with pale grey chalk.  I added something different to almost every circle. I just eyeballed everything, though I'm pretty sure it doesn't follow any graphic triangles or the rule of three.  I allowed myself a few metallics or neutrals here and there. The title is a Cameo cut and wood veneer, both covered in gesso to add a little texture.

 I tried using the typewriter on a glassine bag to give the journaling a more ethereal (and white?) look.

In one circle I embossed cardstock with white Zing.  I stamped two others in gold.  A few I even covered in glassine.  What do you think?  Hope you'll join the challenge!

Supply List: white cardstock, pink paislee resist paper, BG paper cottage doily paper, JBS buttons, bow and pearls, MME and Amy Tangerine stamps, Ormolu flair, gold alpha washi.
