" Our Happy Place "


Back again with another layout for 

This is " Major Case File 202 "
The Major case file runs for the whole month so if you haven't played along then this is the one.
You have all the colours and the sketch too, how easy is that?

For this case file I decided to base it on our home. We have totally renovated it from the back fence to the front gutter and everything in between.
For this case file I have done before and after photo's of the front of our home which fits
the Topic section of the Testimony.



I changed the sketch a little and used square photos rather than the round ones.

Brick stamping and underneath the cluster I did stencil in some bricks with texture paste but as usual I covered most of it with lots and lots of embellies.

Case File Elements
The Scheme - Sky Blue, Cadet Blue, Bright White, Muted Yellow and Olive Green
The Evidence- I used solid white background, grid pattern architectural elements, triangles, diamonds,metal, transparent accents, stamps and border punch
The Testimony - I created my border with my testimony and used the Topic documenting something about our home and using the Writing Format by listing all the renovations we have completed so far.



Now for some details and the closeups....



I used the negative of the the frames, being one who never throws out anything but really the negatives of the chipboard  sometimes make great pieces to have peeking 
out from behind the clusters.



These are the actual frames from ScrapFX and I have just
realised they have the diamond shape as per the evidence list.






I love to make little things to add to my pages and on this one I made a sign post. 




I used a stapler to add the triangle quotes to  make the banner






Because we live so close to the beach I wanted to  put a few beachy elements
in the layout. So I added the thongs (flip flops)


Some gauze and paints splats to finish the layout.
