How are you all doing? What a great April for us in Germany... finally no more frost! Yeayy! Welcome sunshine! Food for thought for today is,"The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for..." So here's the new Case File No.162 from CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) with the mood board below
And my layout for that...
The Color Scheme : Aqua, Black, Bright Red, Buttery Yellow and Pale Blue
The Evidence : Metal, Circles, Stars, Stripes, Ink/Paint and Die Cuts
The Testimony : I chose presentation by placing my journaling inside something surprising (which is inside the straw). It said,"To my sweet daughter... Your wee little life has changed me. The day you were born was like a new beginning for me too. A change that will forever lay soft upon my heart. Everything in my life is sweeter because of you. The days and fleeting moments with you are only a breath in time. They linger briefly and fly away on the wings of tomorrow. You are precious in every way, the sunshine in my day, the joy in my soul, and the love of my life. Love you forever, MOM."
I used an old paper from Fancy Pants Design - Recorder, Childish Things. I did a thin layers of gesso using a small paper or (an old credit card if you want) to create a grunge background. Then I used different kind of washi tapes to create layers behind my photo. I added plastic canvas for making more textures. Once I'm done... I glued everything down and started to stamp a lot. The edges using Kaiser Craft Stamp - Film Edges, and all over the page using Finnabair Clear Stamp - Honey Comb and Stampers Anonymous - Bitty Grunge.
Thanks you all for stopping by, wish you all have a great day! Hugs, Merry.
