Hello - CSI319 - Crate Paper (Hello love)

Hi there.  I hope you are taking care of yourself and staying safe in these unusual times.  I am sharing the mid month reveal for Color Story Inspiration.  It would be wonderful if you played along.  It is fun to dig into your stash for the right colours and evidence.  Added to that there is awesome prizes that can be won.  I used photos taken during your March trip to the Umgeni River Bird Park in Durban.

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Crate Paper (Hello Love), My Minds Eye; Cardstock:  American Crafts; Letter Stickers: American Crafts (Maggie);Chipboard: Hello Love;  Word Stickers: Maggie Holmes; Flowers: Prima, Celebr8; Enamel dots: Nuvo Crystal Drops (Honey Gold); Stickers: Maggie Holmes; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Punches: Fiskars, EK Success.

The Case File:
 I used the case file in the traditional way.

The Scheme:  All colours used.

Evidence:  Wonky dots; flowers, leaves, enamel dots, animals.

Testimony:  I used the inspirational word "Hello" as my title and journaled about our visit.

The Pagemap I used:

Some close ups:
 I love the colours and the layers.  I outlined my layers with black pen and stitched around my circles.

 I added some birds around my title.

 I usually struggle with pretty tags...choosing to use them between layers.

 The Story.

A mix of embellishments of what was part of the collection and what was lying on my desk.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you were inspired to create.  Stay safe.
