Another CSI Challenge at Once Upon a Sketch....


I decided to enter the next Once Upon a Sketch CSI Challenge... a softer palette than the last challenge, and I am quite pleased with the result..

Here is the "case file"

And here is my interpretation:

The paper is by Basic Grey... "Periphery"
 The overall layout... I used all the colors and the sketch provided, 
the "evidence" I used from the list was branches, bird, flowers,
misting and woodgrain...
 I put my journaling in a little pull out tag behind the picture mat...
from the "testimony" I used documenting a pet (or in the case, pets..),
use a border and an inspiration word... "Together".
Handwritten sentiments are always a really nice touch...
  I'm a stickler for small details... like the metal dots on this flourish
 and lots of inking....
  More tiny details... they can add texture as well as visual interest.
Well, I'm off to submit this... I really like doing these challenges, because it means I have a
goal to work towards... plus, I can get caught up on some of my personal scrapbooks!
So, I can say, another "case closed"!
