Don't you just love the colours?
Here is Em's fabulous sketch.
And, here is my take on this case file.
Here is how I cracked the case.
Scheme - the colours are all there.
Evidence - white background, jewels, hearts, arrows, doodling/penwork,
Testimony - All about me prompt - I got my favourite comfort food :).
The quote on the front says
Take time to enjoy the simple things in life.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
I hate cooking, seriously, I hate it - it ranks right up there with cleaning toilets. BUT... I do love Mac Cheese it is not only my favourite comfort food it is my favourite food of ALL time. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and so I figured if I love it so much I had better learn the cook the best version of it and I do love to make this dish. In fact I have perfected it. This dish of mine is NOT for the feint hearted though, it is loaded with calories and I mean loaded. I have tried many peoples and places versions of it and over time I have tweaked it until it is perfect for me, and anyone who has ever tried my mac cheese will agree - my MIL would only eat it if I made it so that says something. This is my comfort food - it absolutely triggers my happy side and thinking about cooking it makes me happy and seeing people go back for seconds is the best thing ever for me. There is nothing better than a plate full of hot steaming mac cheese on a cold winters night, or to make you feel better when you are down, this is real food.
It is made with loads of butter and full cream milk. Three cheeses, bacon, onion and mushrooms, tangy and creamy and topped with tomatoes, golden cheese and breadcrumbs... When I dish it up I hear my butt groaning :) "Please step away from that plate" .... hahahahahahah fat chance.
You might be wondering what we had for dinner once I had finished this layout ;)
YEP! Mac Cheese, and enough leftovers for dinner tonight while we watch a movie.
I used a heavy watercolour paper to start because I wanted to use my gelatos. I used the red, the orange and the yellow from top to bottom and misted them so that they would blend a bit and create a watercolour effect and I used the teal and the turquoise from left to right (most is hidden by the photos). I did some stamping using a stitch stamp and added some washi tape to create the lines. I also stamped a butterfly and a mesh with butterflies.
The arrows, heart and title are chipboard bits that I just painted black. The quote was stamped with black archival in. The paint splats were made with black ink. I doodled around the entire layout.
I used my watercolour neopens to colour in the butterflies in the colours of the palette.
I chose to go with the watercolour and washi to create the lines of the sketch and I used the bold triangles to reinforce the lines and the colours.
I loved this case file and the colours they remind me of sorbet or something. So yummy...like the food ;)
Thanks for stopping by to take a look. I hope you have a great weekend whatever you are getting up to. I am babysitting again tonight. YAY! I love my yummy time.
