Hello friends near and far, happy Tuesday!
Scandinavia is counting down to Summer Solstice, or as we call it, Midsummer which is on Friday. An occasion as celebrated as Christmas over here. Poor tourists who are in Stockholm this upcoming weekend, not a Swede in sight and so many restaurants closed.
Last Friday was release day over at CSI, the 24th case file can you believe it!
First the palette and prompts.
And then the beautiful coordinates created by our talented Michele Singh.
My take looks like this.
The only thing I could think of when I saw this week's palette was something really cold but also very warm; snow/ice and mulled wine! I also remembered seeing a really cool and cozy photo on a Finnish site that I had to find again, and I did!
So lots of shimmer, silver accents, sparkle and gesso were the things that I chose as evidence and then some masked/molding pasted circles/dots and a few pops of red.
My journalling is from the Queen's Meme and nothing personal at all. CLICK ON THE TEXT AND IT WILL COME UP LARGER.
Molding paste/masking + Winsor & Newton Iridescent Medium + dito Glass Beads Texture Gel + Stickles in silver. Stamping in the palest of pink chalks. Also smeared out the same pink and some silver grey chalk randomly along the borders, and smudged it out with my fingers.
The red dots are liquid pearls.
More of the Iridescent Medium on the lace and the flowers.
Prima goodies everywhere of course + beads and jewels.
A couple of more days of work and then an extended weekend yay!
Thanks for your lovely visit, hope to see you again!
Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
