It is Saturday morning here in Johannesburg and we have an exciting weekend with the rugby this afternoon for those that are fans. Go Bokke! That is as far as it goes for me. :)
I have the new case file from CSI today and here it is.
I used the sketch from the latest Scrap Africa.
Really soft and pretty and muted this week and I loved it. Here is my take on it.
Scheme - the colours are all there.
Evidence - Gems, bookpages,cabochon flowers, hearts, dangle something, ribbon,charm, lace.
Testimony - Never list.
My Jounalling (on the pink tag) says...
I have never...
Drunk coffee, I don’t even like the smell of it, and I am the only one in my family that doesn’t like it.
Had cosmetic surgery of any kind, nor will I ever have, I have learned to love who I am and I am happy to age gracefully.
Had a tattoo, although I would really love to have one but I am allergic to the pigment in the ink.
Gone bungee jumping, and I never will because I am afraid of what it does to your brain.
Played a musical instrument, although I would love to play the sax or the piano.
Been to jail :) and that’s gotta count for something :)
Turned down a frozen margarita, since I had the first one... just one sip and you are hooked.
Liked snakes, I am terrified of them, truly terrified that I can’t even look at pictures of them.
Been divorced, and I don’t plan on it anytime soon.
Had a sister, and I have always wanted one – I do have a SIL who is also my best friend and we chose each other.
Enjoyed cooking, my dream would be to have a chef who completely took care of the kitchen area.
Lived alone, I left school and moved into a house that I shared with other and then I got married. I am not sure I would know how to live alone either.
Been published in an overseas magazine, I really want that too and so it is maybe time to remedy that.
Been able to dance, I have three left feet... but inside my head I have the moves down pat... Move over Michael Jackson – Valerie is in the house.
Gotten over my mother’s death, somehow I feel that I should have been able to do something.
Had any faith in myself. I am still working on that.
Hitch hiked, I always was and would still be too scared.
I have never...
Here are some close-ups
I used the little square stencil with gesso and a pale pink mist and also just spread gesso... I looks very yellow here on the photo but on the layout it is white... go figure. I stamped the Royal Windsor stamp with black ink and also added some dry wall tape, man I love that stuff. The lace is a sticky backed lace and I used a border punch for the scalloped border I used book paper and created tags with the pediment die cuts so my journalling could go under the photo.
Here I created a little cluster of flowers, hat pins and a little heart charm tied with ribbon, I swiped the whole lot with gesso.
I used the same border punch to create a little detail at the top of the page. The title and chippie circles were painted black and I added some jewels to the circle and added a flower the butterfly and some gauze.
I really enjoyed this case file it was a lot of fun to do. Thanks for stopping by to take a look and I love reading the comments that you leave. You know who you are :D thank you.
