Roam



 This week over at CSI I played along as a "civilian", didn't have my layout done in time!!  Eek!  But I enjoyed the extra time to tweek and get things just so!  So let's jump into this shall we?
My evidence includes:
Circles:  Circles in the clocks, the clock paper, the polka dots and with in the metal embellishments
Clocks:  My Teresa Collins papers, the use of my Tim Holtz clock die, my metal clock embellishments and a RAK of a Dusty Attic clock
Leaves:  Die cuts onto corrugated paper, laser cut wood, remnant of DA flourish/leaves and some Technique Tuesday rubber stamping
Tone on Tone patterns:  A very loose interpretation.  The TC clock paper was grey on grey.  Then I got a wild hair up, well.  I took my manilla tag and began building with my inks, mists and distress paints the colors in the reveal.  Layering and building.  Stamping and creating resists with embossing powders.  I couldn't leave well enough alone, I had to do my clock dies and even the DA chipboard after giving a base coat of white acrylic.  I love how the "Evidence" inspired my creativity.
Trees:  I used my TH die again using the tree branches as embellies.
Upside Down:  I placed my DA chipboard clock upside down.


 My journaling is inspired by "Document an outing":
Girlfriends with Camera
Lost on Texas Backroads
Summer 2009

Paradise Cemetery, early morn'.
Cameras, batteries, cold drinks loaded up.
A map just incase, and a full tank of gas
A day snapping pictures
quiet conversations
turning u-turns and
random discoveries

Reads the tag under the photo.


We photograph a lot of cemetaries... Why?
Our subjects don't move around!
There's a somber quiet that fills the air.
Each stone holds a story
history
and even art
It's the light,
the contrast
and even a small hope
we "catch" something
ODD.

 My tag is inspired by Tim Holtz and recent demo's with metallic Distress Paints and Stains.  I also incorporated a resist trick taught by Nanci out at Cat's Creations.

I almost forgot, I'm submitting this over on Cat's BLOG to participate in her WOW Wednesday.  This is a fun way to share your creations with others, and be inspired by others creations.  When you play along, leave comments on each blog and back on Cat's blog, you're entered to win some BLOG CANDY.  Free stuff man!  So hop over and play along. You still have time!  :D

I love this layout and your story so much Shaunery. Cemetaries are a wonderful place to take photos... I also really love churches especially old ones. The techniques on your tag and clocks are amazing. Love it all.

Beautiful! I always so amazed by your layouts and creativity! At first I thought it said "Rome" don't know why but I wondered when you went to Rome and then realized it was "Roam." Ha, ha. Stupid brain.
