This is my take on the very cool Case File #85
As you can see, I have used all the colours in the palette and some gorgeous 2Crafty chippies to help me tell the story of the day that I found these shells on the beach.
We were having dinner one evening, and I found these two shells, each with a heart shape. It was as if someone was trying to send me a message and I chose to feel loved at that moment.
I've hung on them and they've come in handy for this layout. I've gone ahead and adhered them (along with sand!) to my page.
For my picture, I've chosen to use a Polaroid Frame that I covered with washi tape. Once I was happy with it, I went over it with some Gesso using a dry brush.
I also find the Ribbon Ties so charming. This one has been primed with gesso, then given a spritz of Color Shine in Mustard & Georgia Peach. Once dry, I gave it a light coat of Glossy Accents, then sanded it a bit and finally a bit of rough gesso in places with a dry brush, to give it a weathered feel.
Here I've snipped a section of a Film Strip, misted with Color Shine in Bronzer and inked the edges to give further definition. I love love that 'Fresh Style' Greatest View flair too!
I've also used a Hello word bubble as a stencil for part of the title. It was super quick and fun. Simply hold your chippie over your page and apply texture paste in the negative space.
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
Till next time!
