Here is how I "solved the case":
- Colour Scheme: I focused on the lighter tones in the scheme, with the darker orange and tan colours as my accents. I have also used black and kraft (i.e. cardboard) on the layout.
- Evidence: Mesh (cheesecloth); Fibres (cheesecloth, ribbon, twine); tone-on-tone; curved, organic shapes (Dusty Attic chipboard floral element)
- Journalling: I scattered my journalling words across the banner elements of the layout
- Sketch: I followed it fairly closely - just tilting the picture and playing with the embellishments
For the circle element of the sketch, I layered a circle cardboard that I ripped the top-layer off of to reveal the cardboard ripple texture with some cheesecloth and second circle of patterned paper. I then ripped a page out of an old dictionary (and had serious guilt about destroying a book) to use in the layering for my photo mat. I used simple black cardstock for the photo mat because I love how the black and white photo stands out on it. I used a Dusty Attic floral frame element, treated with Perfect Pearls Pigments in Copper and Gold, as well as a Dusty Attic mini word for the title, which I simply coloured with a black artist's marker.
I made the banner using twine and cardboard and then added word elements from 7-Dots Studio Alpha Stickers for my scattered journalling. I added in some mulberry flowers, fussy-cut butterflies, tag elements from the Graphic 45 collection, and ribbon as my embellishments.
