I'll be honest...me and flowers and lace don't usually hang out in the same circles. Don't get me wrong, I like flowers and lace, I admire them on many layouts when I see people do amazing things with them but they are not my usual go to products. I feel like I don't quite know what to do with them!
So what did I do to partake in CSI's Case No. 63 which called for things more soft and feminine? I looked to the experts of course :) In this case I admired, studied (ooo'd and ahhh'd) Czekoczyna's blog. Her work is phenomenal, crazy beautiful! She pulls off a perfect mix of feminine and grunge, often with plenty of flowers and lace and I very much admire her style!
I don't know if I did her any justice but I tried and I'm really happy with the results:
There was lot's of stamping, painting, misting and building of layers. And for my Evidence I used flowers, pearls, tape measure (though it's quite buried), numbers, lace, and a tag. For my Testimony I journaled on a tag tucked under the photo.
I enjoyed building the layers, not just the media layers but also the paper and embellishment layers...
There we go...flowers! I've amassed quite a bit over the years and I'm actually feeling encouraged to use them!
The white rosette came as part of a lovely RAK I received from my friend Helene Bogren....thank you!
