Black With Two... April 15??

Sorry Girls, I'm a bit late with this again, but better late than never! 
How striking is a black background?  I just love it, it makes everything pop!  I think it can be intimidating sometimes to try using soft colours with black but rather than over powering the gentle hues I actually think it gives a beautiful clean background that helps deepen all of your colours.  So here is my BW2 layout for this challenge...
That is my baby girl meeting my baby boy, seems like only yesterday!
This layout's criteria was black with fabric and yellow!  I truly did struggle with that because yellow is NOT my favourite colour.  But I am pretty pleased with how it come out.  I actually have had a heap of fun getting totally off track with hand dying! As I didn't have any yellow pigments AT ALL (no paint, no ink, no dye, no nothing, not even a piece of yellow paper!!!!) and with no LSS to pop into I had to be a bit creative and so I hand dyed some open weave muslin with some household products and food! It was great fun!! And I think it worked really well!  And I dyed a beautiful piece of vintage floral print fabric I had yellow as well and used it as my mats!  So come on girls get your creative caps on and get over to BW2 with a link to your entry, can't wait to see them all!

Take care of each other,
see you soon.
