I have had a really sad start to the week. My dog Cola, who has been with me for almost 12 years, passed away. I was with him until the end and it was one of the sadest things to have to do. So this week I wanted to make a little tribute to him, not only for him, but for me.
I used the CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration Case File #38 as my inspiration.
Here are the details and the sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch and the challenge:
Because I thought Cola was so beautiful I decided to use flowers. Not something I would usually do seeing as though he is a boy, but I love it, it was exactly what I wanted.
I used a Crafters Workshop Template - Mini Damask and Textured Paste to
raise the Damask and give some dimenstion.
I used clusters of flowers as well as some Dusty Attic Chipboard.
My background paper, was a sheet of white cardstock, I then layered newspaper over the top, and painted over it. I distressed the edges and left some parts of the paper peeping through. Like the word "dog" on the left.
Another textured area.
In the scroll is my journalling. There was so much I wanted to say, so I typed it up to look like a newspaper and rolled it up, just like a newspaper.
Here is my journalling:
I tried so hard to say exactly what I wanted to say, hopefully I did a good job of it.
It was the nicest thing to do this week. Hard as it was, it was my way of saying goodbye.
I hope they are looking after you in Doggie Heaven, Cola.
Thanks for stopping by. xoxo
