SOS Stash Challenge #15

Scrap Our Stash hosts a fun challenge every month and for June, the challenge is Monochromatic.

Here are the rules:

Create a MONOCHROMATIC layout and include the following:
1. Your layout should be different shades of 1 color. 
2. You can add black, white or Kraft --- but 75% must be shades of 1 color. 
3. STASH ITEMS: You must also add 5 (or more) DIFFERENT premade/prepackaged embellishments of your choice on your layout. You can use as many of the items you want BUT you will need to list 5 different items. (example - 2 paperclips, 4 buttons, 1 washi tape, 1 twine, and bling)

I love monochromatic layouts and wanted to do a two page layout to tell my story.  The pictures are of our sailboat, Sirius.  This is a very dimensional layout using (premade/prepackaged) 1 chain (it really is blue with some green), 1 anchor die cut, 4 glass pebbles, 1 chipboard letter, 3 sets of star stickers, lots of thick blue pexiglass stars that my uncle cut for me, and 3 large brads.  The journaling is tucked in behind the blue picture.  The sub title, "It's all about the stars" leads into the story of how we used the star, "Sirius" to navigate when we were 70 miles off the coast of Oregon.  That's all I'm going to say in order to protect the innocent.

Be sure to stop by Scrap Our Stash to see all the inspiring layouts posted for both the monochromatic challenge and the sketch challenge.
