Hello and welcome! We have a new case file at CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration, with a sweet colour combo and summery theme:
I was going through a pile of photos and came up on this one:
During the summers, we spent a lot of time at the sea as children. This layout is about fishing for little crabs among the cliffs in the shallow water. They were kept in buckets and then released back into the sea, and were a little bit scary to hold. From the evidence items I used: something transparent, texture paste, flowers, lace, and woodgrain, and from the testimony items, I journaled about a summer memory.
The photo is matted on two stamped pieces of acetate and I wrote the journaling on three different labels by Eileen Hull, die cut from woodgrain paper. I turned the sketch, since I wanted to use one 6 x 4 horizontal photo, rather than three smaller photos.
Small and large flowers were added by smearing molding paste through two different stencils (Prima and Wendy Vecchi), also adding two words with a Wendy Vecchi stencil. I smeared a little bit of Golden Glass Bead Gel here and there, which gives the look of water.
Here you can see the look of the Glossy Accents better.
The crabs and sea star were stamped on Wendy Vecchi Clearly For Art modeling film and cut out. I heated the film with my heat gun and shaped it. It keeps its shape perfectly, very cool stuff.
I love this flower stencil by Wendy Vecchi. The flowers were painted white and the stems green. The little butterfly is die cut with Karen Burniston's Butterflies die.
Thank you for looking! Enjoy your weekend!
