62 - CSI Challenge 2 Today

Great colours this week for a little boy’s page.  Thanks Debbi. Love the sketch too, thanks Em
I hope you will come on over and have a play, you have until Sunday 17th to upload.
 Here is my take on this came together really quickly...unusual for me

Here's how I cracked the case.
Fabric - does the ribbon count?
Wood - the leaves
Tone on tone

I went to the journalling prompts and chose to write about qualities a best friend would admire.   These twin boys really are each other’s best friend and I see them emulating the gifts and strengths of each other. 

It’s interesting to observe the different approach you two have to life and learning.  One always adopts a vigilant, back foot stance; guards & blocks, saying “No” to most options, even if it’s a something he likes.  The other always dances down the pitch, hits the ball on the up and lets fly with resounding “Yes” to most things. You each display a viable, alternative view of the world from which your brother can learn. Why is it so?  Born on the same day & nurtured alike, it rekindles in me, the whole debate of nature versus nurture. It’s wonderful that you are so uniquely individual.   Jan  25, 2013
