Nothing traumatic happening today... so that's good! It was a quiet day... another cold one out there.
I had time to complete a few layouts, which I'm super happy about.
This layout was submitted at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration for their Case File #57. The deadline for entries is February 10th.
Here's the "case" info:
And the color palette:
EVIDENCE (CHOOSE AT LEAST 2 ELEMENTS)
- solid background
- 10 layers (inspired by the heart)
- die cuts
- fabric brads
- a large heart as a major design element
- weave or intertwine something (inspired by the vines)
TESTIMONY (CHOOSE AT LEAST 1 ELEMENT)
- Document a love story (interpret as you wish).
- Write a top 10 (or other 10) list
- Journal from two different perspectives (he said/she said; the past you/the present you; the present you/the future you, etc.)
- Record a conversation or journal as dialogue
- Use a heart-shaped journaling spot
- Add hearts to your journaling spot
- Inspiration Words: -- soar, love, reflect use these as inspiration for your journaling, not just as a title.
This is what I created:

The testimony: Heart shaped journaling spot and hearts added to the journaling spot.

I added a heart to the center of the paper doily, distressed the edges and added two hearts and a flower.
Lace fabric was used to cover the pink heart that I hand made. To add a bit more to the plain pink strip, I added a punched border.
The stars are chipboard. Flowers were added in between the two stars with gems added for their centers. The flowers were misted.
I found a book of printed vellum sheets with a variety of designs and this dragonfly really caught my eye because it's TEAL! I just had to add it to my page, cutting it from the page, adhering it only in the center to leave the wings free-flowing.
Here's a closer look at the chipboard heart and flowers.
Here's a better look at the cutest dragonfly! :)
