When Debbi asked me quite some time ago if I would be Special Agent for August, I did not jump at the chance straight away. I have quite a lot on my plate and I had to think wheather I would be able to fullfill my obligations. I said yes at first thinking I would do 'a few case files'.
Turned out I did them all! I was a little late posting all but one case file but Debbi being a very gracious lady gave me some extra time when I needed it. Tonight I just managed to finish my lo in time to take a picture of it before darkness fell. Lucky for me the US is six hours behind,...LOL!
Here it is:
I absolutely do not like the messy handwriting part here. To me that is the most prominent feature on the page. I did not, however, have time to do the journalling on my pc this time. It'll heve to do!
Here are some close ups:
This is a lovely photo of my two eldest daughters.
We were on vacations in the South of France and we were happy we'd found fields and fields of gorgeous sunflowers!
I used a white Bazzil as a base and smudged some of the paint colours on there. I layered a blue paper on top and fastened my bits with stitching. I painted a thick layer of gesso. After cutting the blue and green paper with pinking scissors, just a little larger than my doily, I layered the two on top as well. Then I painted around the brim of my circular shape with yellow to symbolize a very abstract sun.
My evidence this week is: paint, flowers, sun
And for my testimony I am documenting a vacation.
I love the look of he beautiful sewn border here. I cut it from an older specialty sheet by Prima. I still have some of the machine stitched papers that they came out with about three years ago.
Actually I have been hoarding them,...There; I said it!!...But now the time has come to use them!
I used a mixture of all 'possible' brands of flowers on this. -But mostly Prima's and Petaloo's.
The green tag is by Les Papiers de Pandore and I cut the yellow one with a die.
I quite like the mix of paint and stitches in this corner. It looks so layered.
The letter stickers are by October Afternoon.The blue and green patterned paper is by Lily Bee, and the green title is a chipboard from Prima.
I am leaving you with a view of the kind of layering I have used on this page. I think there are about nine layers around the photo.
It is not as bulky as some of my pages but there is still lot of texture.
Thanks so much for dropping by.
I recommend you head over to CSI Color Stories Inspiration to have a peek at what the other guest designers and the awesome DT did. It is well worth it.
I would like to say a big thank you to Debbie for having me as a 'Special Agent' for the latest five case files. I have enjoyed it very much!
