Welcome everyone to a special Collaboration case file CC - 4 at
CSI; Color, Stories and Inspiration
Words and Paintery.
These two challenge sites have got together to create this amazing case file.
What a fantastic idea, make one project and participate in both challenges AND be eligible for even MORE prizes. Take a peek at some of the wonderful creations at both of these sites, amazing!! I must add its fantastic to see my work featured on another challenge site too with their Design Team members.
Now for my interpretation of the case file.
This is a picture of my daughter Kyra with Elsa and Anna from the film Frozen. This photo was taken this Christmas. I decided to construct a" photo booth" for Christmas photo's. My granddaughter wanted her Mum to have a photo taken with her favorite dolls. The case file is full of snowflakes and all things wintery and as we, in Australia don't have a cold Christmas or for that matter, I live in an area that never has snow so this was the closest I could get to a " frozen" theme.
I don't usually like doing blue colours but this case file is a beauty and I had a great time doing it.

Now for the case file requirements.
The Scheme; All 5 colours used: aqua blue, true blue, taupe, light gray and off white.
The Evidence ; I used stripes, snowflakes, silver metal, 3 of something, stars, glitter, texture paste, hearts,
The Testimony; I used the inspirational word " Celebrate & Overcome"
On this layout I documented the testimony on the back of the layout and it reads;
Every year I try to do something a little different so its not the same Christmas. It might be the way we wrap the pressies under the tree, I might change the way I cook the food or add another yummy item to the menu, I like to change something a little but remember it will always be special.
I always have trouble getting my family to have photo's taken so this year (2015) I decided I would overcome this problem by collecting bits and pieces of Christmas dressups, set up the camera on a tripod, create an area i the yard for a " photo booth " and let everyone have some fun. It didn't matter who was in the photo or how many photo's were taken all I wanted was some special memories of everyone as we celebrated Christmas and everything it means to us. I captured in excess of 175 photos of my family. This is just one of them.
NOW FOR THE CLOSEUPS......
|Lots of glitter, pearls and all things shiny on this layout. |
The little silver snowflakes came off a card someone had sent me.
I like to recycle..
|Clear Gesso on the background and some black stamping. |
I used silks on the chippies
to give them more of a shimmer than glitter.
|I love the Green Tara ribbon that I used on this layout.|
It has string woven through it that you pull and tie
and you get left with this beautiful little cluster.
I added the length of lace after I coloured it with inks.
|Love the doilies and of course flowers.|
