Hello all! Have you seen that CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration has a design team call, you can read all about it here. It is such a fun team to be on, I hope you will apply. Here's this week's case file, with a sketch since it is the second weekend of the month:
I loved the sketch and the theme about quirks and used these shark hat photos to tell a story of all the different role play games that we do at the moment. From the evidence items I used: animal accents, dots, brackets, two fonts, and dotted lines. The journaling is really long and I wrote it on a paper placed behind the layout. My son loves role play and usually it is me who has to do the various voices, although he often tells me what I must say. He tells his soft toys about his day every evening, cars speak, all new toys speak, he is sometimes a shark, a Viking, a troll, and so on. Some of the various roles have been going for a long time and I have to try to remember all the different voices I need to use, otherwise he will correct me.
I found a BoBunny paper which fit the colours really well, but it was too busy for my liking, so I smeared gesso on top to tone down the colours. It was stamped with a text stamp and with Prima messy stitching stamps. I also added some texture paste dots.
Thank you for looking!! I hope you will join us this week!
