Life is more than Black & White - WW1 August challenge

August challenge at White With 1 was to use white cs with liquorice. very challenging indeed.
My lo was inspired by the fab tutorial by Riikka Kovasin at Pop&Colours #3.
I used papers from Echo Park and Pink Paislee. The flair buttons are from StudioFourteen40 and the circle frame chipboard is from Creative Embellishments.
As a contrast to the white and black, I used a very colorful photo, that was taken at Stravinsky Fountain in Paris. by using this photo, I could emphasize the message of the title.
At this hard days of war (well, it has been a couple of days with cease fire, and I do hope it will continue!), I feel that this message is so true. there's no absolute true. life is really much more than just black and white....
I worked on the chipboard frame with gesso, distress ink, UTEE, Perfect Pearls and fine embossing powder.
Here are some close-ups on the mixed media background and on the altered chipboard:

Thank you for visiting my blog and I appreciate your comments very much.
