Here's Case File No. 72, in case you haven't seen it:
So here's my page. Clues I used...Evidence: doilies, labels, layering rub-ons, something clear, book pages, leafy vine, kraft background, metal, pen work. Testimony: Journal on a series of stacked labels, tweet w/hashtags.
And speaking of playing catch-up, the same thing happened the week before, and I had to make this page in a jiffy. Well, for me, a jifffy--I put it together in about 4 hours last Thursday night after school.
That teal is actually a little closer to the palette in real life.
Here are some details. I was so happy to break out some rub-ons for this page. I layered two My Mind's Eye rub-ons in the lower right corner.
These leafy elements and the teal element in the background were cut with my Silhouette Cameo. The doily is by Martha Stewart. The ledger with the bracket is a Fancy Pants rub-on.
I adore these little Studio Calico birds and they've been showing up a lot on my pages lately. I thought it was especially perfect for this "Tweet" Testimony prompt. The blue bit at the top of the dictionary page is also a rub-on.
I'm planning to journal in more detail on the back, but the gist of the story is this: My hair stylist moved to the next state a few years ago, and I've been driving down to Virginia, but the traffic is so stressful after school. Then I moved further away, and it got even more stressful, so I've been in search of a closer stylist. This guy, Tone (prounounced To-nay) worked at the new Ulta near me and cut my mom's friend's hair. She said he did a great job on her hair. I had an Ulta coupon for salon services, so I thought, What the heck, I'll give him a try.
These pictures were taken the first time, and he did a pretty good job with my hair. He put a glaze on it to make it have more shine, which I really liked.
The second time I went to him, I wasn't so happy. He talked me into putting some red in the glaze--"Just a little, to brighten it up." I was very nervous because I had never in my life colored my hair, but I trusted him.
I shouldn't have trusted him. My hair turned out so dark, it was almost dark brown. And he gave me an "asymmetrical" cut, which was supposed to be trendy, I guess, but just looked like a kindergartner had hacked my hair.
I didn't cry in front of him, but I did when I got home. And the next day and the next. I spent the next several weeks scrubbing my hair with Head and Shoulders daily, which my sister told me would help the color wash out quicker.
I've gone to one other stylist in my town, who did a significantly better job, but last weekend, I finally went back to Hasan because I had another event planned in Virginia, and I am vowing to always go back to him, no matter what.
The yellow paper I used is old Chatterbox paper. I tore a page out of an old dictionary and circled some of the words that went with my page. The lettering I used is by Heidi Swapp (the ledger #) and American Crafts Thickers.
When I was looking for embellishments, I came across these brads by Crate Paper that were perfect for htese colors.
These colors are very unusual but were fun to work with. You must go see the awesome work by the rest of the team and our guest designers.
