CSI Case File No. 116: A Band of Brothers

Here's the inspiration for the Color Story Inspiration Challenge Case File No. 116:
Here's the scrapbook page I created using more vintage photos from my Instant Relatives Collection.


Scheme:  used all five colors--black, greenish gray, teal, white, bold red
Evidence:  music elements(stickers, brads, song titles and lyrics); circles;
metal (the musical brads); labels (song titles made with Dymo Label-maker)
Testimony:  I used song titles from WWI as the inspiration for my journaling.
I also made journal entries in several places on the page.

Other entries in my handwriting:

Soldiers wrote their own lyrics (and music sometimes) which they sang and played to pass the time or while marching into war.  (written on the white diagonal stripes)

Civilians wrote and sang songs to support or oppose the war effort.  (written on the teal diagonal stripes)
