#230 May 2017

17 May 2017

Did you know that that it's National Transportation Week in the USA?

With this in mind, our Case File #230 is inspired by this whimsical Scene by British artist Gary Walton.

You can almost smell the lavender in this beautiful delicate pastel colour palette.

That image reminds me of myself coming back from a craft supply gathering session, fully loaded.

The implied journey, developing the seeds of imagination from challenge graphic to finished project inspired this layout and journaling.


I found some wonderful fussy cuts in my stash just like my jars of supplies.

To give them a realistic effect I coated the glass parts in glossy accents and added a gilding flake metal lid.

I have jars of butterflies, florals and shiny things to inspire me on the crafting journey.


I enjoyed this challenge, spending time mapping the journey of the layout.
