Fabulous case file this week, and since I love circles, this layout is all about the circles. From the evidence items I used: circles, metal, eyelets, robots, tone on tone, putting something upside down. From the testimony items: journaling on a circle shape. I used some cute photos of my son and his cousin and die-cut them all into circles.
I wanted to have a lot of texture on this page, because of the sand in the photos, so used quite a bit of dry embossing. The background is cardstock embossed and sanded, same with the three beige circles. The metallic circles were made by covering cardstock with aluminium tape, embossing and then painting the whole thing black. Before the paint dried completely, I wiped most of it off, creating an aged metal look.
The gears were die-cut from mat board, painted silver and copper, sanded and distressed with a needle tool. Then they were inked with Black Soot and stamped with a friendship definition stamp. I used the same stamp to roughly stamp the red circles. I was happy to use some eyelets, one of my oldest supplies that often get neglected nowadays.
The journaling is about how cute it was when my son's cousin took his hand to help him over a high edge in the sandpit. Doesn't happen so often, and I was happy to have my camera out. TFL!!
