As I mentioned before, I am special deputy over at Color Story Inspiration for the month of August. I am a tad addicted to their challenges. I love that it gives me the opportunity to search my stash for the perfect colour papers and the perfect embellishments...at the same time I am challenged to record my memories. Here is my layout based on the latest case file:
The case file:
This is how I solved this case file:
Scheme: All the colours were used.
Evidence: Polka dots; ribbons, flowers, paint, banner, tree, tie something (ribbon among the banner pieces).
Testimony: I used the inspiration words: Oh..happy day as my title. The journaling is as follows: "Every day spent with you is a happy day for me. On this day we were drinking coffee at Kiddie Lovers while you were all playing. You came to me all excited about a little worm that you have found while playing on the grass. You wanted me to photograph you and the worm...but all I wanted to do was capture the excitement on your face. I love you to the moon and back. xx"
I used this sketch by Ana Castro as inspiration:
Some close ups:
I covered the "bits of honey" chipboard by Blue Fern Studios with gesso and then painted it black.
I coloured the texture paste to a soft orange. The My Minds Eye brads have been in my stash for a long time.
I put a little photo of the worm into a frame that is also part of the Teresa Collins Daily Stories line.
The banner was left over from a Basic Grey kit...I sprayed it with orange Lindy's Stamp gang mist and then tied little pieces of ribbon in between the banner pieces. The little tree is by Pebbles.
Finally I cut the title with the Silhouette and added the stitching to two of the corners of my page.
