sometimes i wish it was yesterday

Seeing the colors of this special CSI case reminded me of an old album of mom and dad, back in 1963 when they were so much in love, before they even got married.
The new sketch is up at sketchbook365 and I thought it was perfect for what I had in mind.
This paper had an old, vintage vibe and the perfect hues
and this is how I treated it
first up a coat of gesso

next a yellow

and then a trio of blues in the color scheme

I am rather forn of how this background turned, sometimes its hard to cover it up, LOL!!!
Now for my evidence in solving the case
  •  clear photocorners
  • travel embellishments (suitcases)
  • circles (enamel dots on suitcase)
  • maps (layered paper behind my photo)

For my testimony I chose to journal in 3 journaling spots
handsome dad

lovely mother, she also matches the colors in the palette

after wrapping some threads in one of the suitcases I added this sticker "such is life"
2 suitcases because each went a separate way
here's the sketch
and here's the palette
I hope you find the time to play in either of this awesome challenges!!!
