Memory of you
by Marie Claude Rodier

Hello 2Crafty fans,
I am here to show you the layout I made especially for CSI challenges
as 2Crafty is one of their sponsor in June.
"Memory of you"

When I first saw the June images, I was obviously drawn to the case 287 as it has a nautical theme...
By now, you know how I love that theme!

But surprisingly, in the end, my layout has nothing to do with that theme!
Instead, I chose to use several clues to solve the case: stack of old papers that have distressed edges, a circular frame that is mimicking a window, a coat of white gesso, old mists and even lace trims.

"Memory of you" title was embellished with two tones of copper waxes
and partially covered with white gesso.

To recreate a vertdigris look, "Frame Round Ornate" was first covered with copper waxes. Green wax and white gesso were added here and there as final touches.

"Flourish adornment set 6 and 7" were first covered with black gesso
and then with turquoise and peacock waxes.
Finally, vintage gold and green waxes and white gesso were also used sparsely.

Thanks for stopping by.
