Here's my page. As usual lately, I had to snap a photo at an inopportune time, so the colors look a little off, but they match the Case File, I promise.
I used a sketch from My Creative Sketches:
Clues I used...Evidence:globe, circles, bird, transportation, trees, metal, clouds, key; Testimony: Document a childhood friendship, song title in your journaling.
Here are some details. I used lots of older papers on this page, K&Co. (blue with hexagons), SEI (dark purple), Making Memories (lighter purple), Bella Blvd. (clouds), Scenic Route (green). The purple letter stickers are by BasicGrey, and that globe was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
I chose these brads to go with the clues on the Case File. The owl on the tree is a flair badge by American Crafts. I used a Stencil Girl stencil with texture paste on the background, and then smushed some watercolor paints onto the background.
I had planned to write the story on the tags, but then I realized I had stitched them under that white paper. Doh! So I decided to write the story on the back. The "True Story" is also a Silhouette cut file.
I haven't yet written the journaling, but basically it's about how this photo always reminds me of these shoes that I lost, and then that gets me to thinking about how I lost them, which gets me to thinking about the friend that I never got to see again because we moved...again. I was always losing friends because we kept moving when I was a kid.
I've been super-busy with the school year winding up, but I will write my journaling soon.
Come see how the design team and guest designers embraced the purple!
