So when Case File #29 from CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration was revealed, I realized that it was about time to document my daughter's love of all things Sherlock.
At first I wasn't sure if I could make the color scheme work with the subject matter, but I actually love how the neutrals and brights look together here. For the challenge, my "evidence" includes labels, wood/woodgrain, a transparency, paint, angles, and journaling peeking out of a pocket. The "testimony" includes a top ten list of quotations from the series that my daughter happily volunteered to compile for me.
The yellow patterned paper is from Amanda Johnson's Housewife collection, from a few years back. I've recently decided to stop hoarding it. It looks so much better on a layout than in some bin. I also worked in some Studio Calico papers. The map of London and the crime report found their way out of my stash and onto the layout for which they were truly intended.
The layout's details all relate to Sherlock and/or to my daughter's Sherlock love in some way. Many of them were selected in consultation with a Sherlock expert (the kid).
|More details and a supply li st may be found in my Two Peas in a Bucket gallery.|
Even though I had to do some detective work to locate everything for this layout, it was worth the hunt. My daughter loves the layout, which means this case file is officially solved. :)
