Here is the Case File:
Here is how I solved the case file:
The Scheme: All 5 colours used.
Evidence: I used grey paint mixed with texture paste, flowers,metal clock and butterfly, book pages and I tied the metal butterfly to my tag with twine.
Testimony: I used the title Childhood Memories and documented this story:
If I think of my childhood years our summer holidays always stands out for me. Those were holidays spent with Uncle Danie and Aunty Doreen and the cousins in Jeffreysbay. There home was right on the main beach. I am reminded of our freedom to roam the town and the beach in total safety. I am reminded of late afternoons and rushing down to the beach when Uncle Danie's fishing boats, the Geelbek and the Geelstert came in with the catch of the day. Those are fond memories.
Some close up details
I cut a template of three different size hexagons with my Cameo. I then stenciled the outlines of the hexagons onto my background on two opposite corners. I coloured the blocks with PanPastel in the following colours: Turquoise Shade, Ultramarine Blue Tint and Neutral Grey. I then sprayed some artists fixative over the PanPastel to set it.
When the Pastels were dry I mixed some grey paint into texture paste and stenciled hexagons randomly over my page.
A little flower cluster with the metal clock and a page pebble.
I cut the butterflies from a sheet of Prima (Reflections) and the journal tag fits snugly behind the photo.
Thank you for leaving love.
