case file 8 - solved


OMG I just fell in love with the colours this week!
Whats not to love about the fresh look of this colour scheme?
This was my take

This was Josh at Wimbledon in 2010, the boy is crazy about tennis. If there is a Grand Slam on TV he will stay up late get up early whatever it takes to watch every single serve, every single set. One day I woke up to find a note "Mum I've gone to watch the tennis at Wimbledon" just like that all on his own where he had such a great day and got to see some of his favourite players. I have written this on a tag that sits behind the pic.
For my Evidence I used Stars, a solid background colour(well white is a colour! lol) & the sunburst element does sit over the edge of an element but I covered it lol also I used the composition of the image to inspire (I made the little flags to represent the cocktail sticks in the glasses) and also the drink in the glass gives a sort of circular shape, I used the yellow circles to represent this.
For my Testimony I wrote in the style of a recipe "for the best experience, Blue Skies, Green Grass, Sunshine need to be present"
A couple of close ups
My journaling that sits behind the pic pulled out
The little flags I made using scraps and cocktails sticks & I machine stitched around the edges of the yellow circles
I really enjoyed working on this (after I finished banging my head against a wall for a few hours cos it just wasn't working at the start lol)
Why not go over and check out the great DT work you won't be dissappointed, hopefully you will be inspired to take on this weeks case
