Relax - CSI 188 - Teresa Collins

Hallo there, I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Today I am playing along with Color Story Inspiration's Case file 188.  I dug deep into my stash and found a few very old Teresa Collins papers that matches the colour scheme perfectly.  At the end of November last year we camped with Wynand and Nadia and the boys in the Baviaans Kloof...and a lot of time was spent cooling down in the river. Emma Stafrace' sketch was perfect to showcase some of these moments.

Here is my page:

Supplies list:  Patterned papers:  Teresa Collins:  Cardstock: American Craft; Chipboard Title: Celebr8; Sequins:  stash; Bee Charm: Tim Holtz; Buttons; Basic Grey; Metal bird: Teresa Collins; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Leavy diecut:  Silhouette Cameo.  Dies: Quikutz nesting dies.

The Case file and sketch:

This is how I solved the case file:

The Scheme: All 5 colors used.

Evidence: Stripes, animals, sun (sunburst stencil in yellow behind the photos), dangle (arrow below bee), buttons, triangles.

Testimony: I stacked my journaling.

Some close ups:
 I made some lollipop flowers using my nested circles dies.

 I added stenciling to my background with sunburst stencil and triangle stencil.

A sprinkling of sequins, a bee with a dangle arrow hanging beneath it.

Thank you for looking and leaving a bit of love ♥
