I used this sketch from Sketchabilities - I really love their sketch challenges.
Here is my layout.
Here is how I solved the case.
Scheme - the colours are all there (even though the greens all look different in the photo) I really hate when that happens :/
Evidence - chevrons, silver metal, flowers, fabric, stitching (the stamps), lean something (the umbrella in the glass)
Testimony - 6 word memoir... Delight in the details Margarita Mama :)
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
Margarita Mama - that's me, my drink of choice is frozen margaritas and I do delight in the details. Frozen tequila slushie in a beautiful glass, rim dipped in lemon juice and then into salt, the perfect straw to suck it up through and a pretty umbrella for a splash of colour. :) Now THAT makes me happy. What doesn't make me or my butt happy is the number of calories is this little death wish or the fact that this little beauty has a kick like a donkey and you can rest assured that you will feel it the next day. But still... the call of the wild and all :/ Not that I drink a lot or often but when I do have to attend a rugby braai it makes it bearable, or on our girls scrapbooking weekend away you will find me with one of these lovelies in my hand just because we all enjoy them and, if you had to raid my deep freeze I am sure that you would find one or three of them hiding in there somewhere waiting for the right moment to be brought out :) hahahahahah and I promise I don't need a 12 step programme just yet. Soon maybe but not today :) It is scrapping these random little things that makes me happy :).
Here are some close-ups.
I used these papers from Authentique which I love and which fit perfectly with the colours this week. I applied a layer of gesso to the background paper and used a stencil and some gesso paste. Once this was dried off I used some green watercolour. I added some script stamping and also the Prima Stitches stamps. The yellow behind the frame is a gauzy material and on the other side you can see the chevron washi stamp :)
I created lots of layers and used a die to cut the leaves. The flowers were added and the ribbon.
I created my six word memoir in two parts. An Amy Tan sticker and also an alphabet sticker. Lastly I added some green splats.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look, and for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
Have a wonderful weekend.
