In this layout, I am trying to show tough and gentle at the same time... I hope I succeeded!
The journaling reads:
"My brother Billy and I live in different worlds- he is an audio engineer and music producer in the alternative music world, and has a totally different lifestyle than my "white bread" existence. He works hard, lives hard and plays hard. But beneath the many tattoos and body piercings lies a gentle soul that loves children, pets and his family more than anything. He will alsays play with his nieces and nephews, and they all LOVE their Uncle Billy! He is also very sentimental, and loves anything with historical or significant meaning to his own life or someone else's. Even though I have known him his whole life, he still manages to surprise me with his tough exterior, and gentler inner man."
I used the current sketch from OUAS for inspiration, and the case file from CSI... I used all the colors from this case file, and my evidence is grid design (squares background paper from CSI), painting, textured element (resist embossing with UTEE), somthing that shimmers or glows (paint his mica in it...). My testimony is something that surprises me and I slipped in the inspiration word "surprise".
