Gather Together - CSI270 - Maggie Holmes Gather

Hallo my crafty friends.  Happy, happy New Year.  I do hope that you will have a fabulous 2019.  I h
ave been away on vacation and have not been into my studio until today.  I always need a lot of inspiration to get started after such a long break.  The latest January CSI challenges are just the thing to get started again.  Here is my take on the CSI case file 270.  I used a photo of us taken on Christmas day at our favourite restaurant near Plettenberg Bay.

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Maggie Holmes (Gather), Dear Lizzy (Saturday), Simple Stories (Posh); Cardstock:  American Craft; Chipboard:  Maggie Holmes (Gather), Simple Stories (Posh); Pink Fresh (Indigo Hills); Brads:  Simple Stories; Die Cuts:  Maggie Holmes (Transparencies); WeR Memory Keepers (Honey I'm Home); Enamel dots: Nuvo Crystal Drops; Twine: Coats; Other: Sewing Machine.

The case file:

I used the traditional clues:
The Scheme:  I tried to use colours that are close to the scheme.

Evidence:  Woodgrain, frames, plants/succulents, flowers, ampersand, something transparent, texture (sewing machine stitching).

Testimony:  I used the inspiration words: gather and together as my title.

The Page Map sketch I used:

Some close ups:
 The chipboard title was just perfect for this page.

 I created a grid with 2,5x2,5 inch squares and then added machine stitching for extra texture.  I also added transparency die cuts to two clusters.

 Some tags made with patterned paper and I added some potted succulents as embellishing.

Circle frames were cut in half and added in three spots around the photo.  I finished the page by adding some brads and a few Nuvo Crystal drops.

Come and play along with these fabulous challenges.  You are challenged to think out the box and to use your stash.  Thank you for visiting my blog today ♥♥
