This weeks challenge over at CSI is sublime! I just love the colours - very bright 'n sunny in the midst of our gloomy winter (not that I'm complaining, because I'm a TOTAL winter babe!).
I decided to team it up with the current sketch challenge at ScrapAfrica.
Because that colour scheme just SCREAMS summery sunshine, I decided to go with a sunny theme; so this is what I did with the two:
By far one of my (too many) favourite shots of my Isabella!
As is obvious, I flipped the sketch once anti-clockwise. I used the pointed section of the LO as the rays o the sun; it is not immediately obvious, but every second ray has been adhered with foam tape so as to give dimension.
Scheme : I used all the colours
Evidence : ruffles (created with tulle), lace, flowers and metal (zip)
Testimony : I used the IW's
Here are some close-ups and additional explanations
I roughly cut circles out of tulle and then gathered each one from the centre, then stapled them onto a circular backing to create this ruffled effect behind Isabella's picture
The backing page is plain white cardstock. To it, I 'adhered' the palest pink tulle by means of painting it down with matte craft varnish. This produced the softest pink, which is part of the scheme for the CSI challenge.
This image shows the dimensions of both the rays and the photo of Isabella
This shows the lace, and a 'clearer' view of the tulle.
Thanks so much for looking!
