Our current Case File:
I'm making pages for my husband's niece and her husband. We're visiting them next month. Clues I used...Evidence: chevrons, silver metals, flowers, stalks/stems, trim that looks like a flat pom-pom, lean something, stitching; Testimony: 6-word memoir.
I used the June sketch at Once Upon a Sketch:
Here are some details. I used lots of oldies on here. The green paper is by SEI (Winnie's Walls--yes, that's how old it is). Some Jolee's stickers (the flowers), old felt alphas by American Crafts. I didn't include a closeup of the stems, but they're from an old Making Memories paper.
I couldn't find any pom-pom trim in my stash that worked with these colors, but the white circle Making Memories trim sort of reminded me of pom-poms, so I went with that. The gray and white paper is by Studio Calico.
I used a Crafter's Workshop Stencil and texture paste on the background and then randomly dabbed some green ink, a polka dot stamp, and a chevron stamp. I actually did two 6-word memoirs. The title is one, and then I used the journaling prompt from Once Upon a Sketch, which was to use the quote "The best things in life aren't things" as inspiration for my second 6-word memoir..
Here's last week's Case File:
I know everyone shies away from purple, but I embraced the purple for my page:
Clues I used...Evidence: flowers, pearls, frame, metal, punches; Testimony: frame your story.
I used a Page Drafts sketch for my page:
Here are some details. Just about everything on my page (except the green polka dot paper) is ancient. That purple paper is about a dozen years old. The background blue paper is really old Chatterbox. That other blue paper is also really old, probably a dozen years old, from when I first started scrapping The letters are old Heidi Swapp chipboard letters. I have a TON of them. I cut the leaves and frame out with my Silhouette Cameo. I stamped over the white paper with a script stamp and white ink.
Since I don't know the stories behind Mehrnaz and Ali's photos, I decided to use a quote for my journaling. That frame is also ancient. I got it way back when metal embellishments were all the rage and it's sat in my metal frame drawer for ages.
