Hey there scrappy scrappers! 🙂
Today over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration we have a travel themed case we need you to help us solve! Case File 259 is yet another stunner, with a lovely fresh colour palette.
And here is how I solved the case:
I used all the colours in the inspiration image and started my layout on solid white cardstock. To stick to the whole travel theme, I used some travel inspired papers and I added two flowers, as appeared on the image. My eye was initially drawn to the black and white title on the top left of the image and as such, I wanted to create a similar type of effect to draw the eye – hence the large circular background. I used a mesh stencil, which echoes the mesh type appearance of the windows on the buildings. Lastly, I used some script paper.
My testimony was to document a trip:
We had the most amazing trip in the recent school holidays, where we climbed in our 4X4 vehicle and headed out on the road. We did a few passes and drove predominantly on dirt roads – which was incredible, as we really got to see so many beautiful parts of our own country. We also encountered some snow! Which was amazing, as this was your very first time Isabella got to see snow up close! It was fuh-REEZING cold with an icy wind blowing us to freezing point, right down to our bones; but at least we got to catch snowflakes on our tongue. It was just too cold to throw snowballs at each other – but later on in our trip, we managed to squeeze in a pretty good snowball fight! This day – our third – was definitely a highlight for Isabella!
Here are some close ups!
