We have a lovely nautical themed Case File for you to play along with at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.
Here is what I put together for this challenge:
I used dotty and striped paper in my layering; and a wet medium on my background to create splashes to fit in with the theme. I was inspired by the circles of the portholes, trees and life savers, so I added in some circular chipboard pieces. Lastly, I was inspired by the arched windows and so I added a tag of similar shape. All my chipboard pieces are from 2Crafty Chipboard.
I worked with 2 shades of light blue, navy blue, white and red.
My journalling is the inspiration word ‘gift’.
Shortly after my beloved cat was killed last year, I received a private message from a Facebook friend in Australia. She kindly, generously, amazingly offered to have some of my cats ashes set in a pendant, in resin. I was completely floored and touched by this kindness shown to me – by someone who barely knows me and someone I may never meet. This is definitely one of the most special and treasured gifts I will ever receive.
Here are some close ups:
