221 @ CSI

It's so much fun experimenting with the colour scheme Debbi gives us each challenge!

Do you want to know how we choose the colours?

I find the best hint is to choose 2 main colours that will dominate the page but particularly compliments your photo. Then add third colour using a little less of it then highlight the other 2 colours in small amounts, for example I used chocolate in a tag and "ME"

As you can see none of the colours are in these photos but that makes them stand out.
They were taken with a film camera  about 2004 and they have some light flaws but I was able to use embellishments to hide them.



Another fun idea, try to do your story using word stickers!

CSI 220

The blue shows up brighter than in reality!!!!
It's definitely paler, never mind it looks good.
How we love cherry season Not as good this year, our winter was far too wet!!!!
It covered 2 areas of the challenge documenting something about food and the inspiration words tradition and sweet




I used heaps of older labels, found some gingham the perfect green, stitching of course keeps everything in place.



Found these old rubons and they still worked!!!

Nov 15th CSI case file


I haved used leaves, bow, metal , bird, hearts and my testimony  is about visiting  this  local  castle called Iandra. A very unusual site in the middle of a wheat farming area in Australia .  Built in the early 1900's by an English  family that moved to here. It has a fascinating  history including becoming a home for wayward boys when it deteriorated. Its  been restored gradually  opening several times a year .  I have known about it for 40 years but it was only this year when I took my daughter and her friend  to visit ! I was overwhelmed  with the history  and restorations. Worth getting out and visting!!!!!!!!
