Afternoon all,

Its time for another case file to open at CSI: color, stories, inspiration.
This weeks case file is a fun challenge with a lovely colour palette.

Here is the case file:


                                                 Its very easy , just follow these rules:


Here is my DT layout of this case file:


Now for the low down!

The colour scheme -  all 5 colours used, most of them were in the photo!

The Evidence -  * dots - clear stamp
* clouds - wood icons
*cars/transportation - photo
*mesh - stencil Memory Box 'mesh'
* string - string & cotton
* wood - clouds & buttons
* hearts - chipboard & in the clouds

The Testimony - *Inspirational words - 'play'
* journal about a child hood memory - well, one of Holly's !!

This is my daughter when she was around 9 months old in her car. She loved being pushed around in this car especially by her brother. She always looked so proud and important whilst being pushed around like she was somebody very important!


The patterned paper I tore up and took two sections out to create the effect I achieved. The torn edges I inked using a red chalk ink pad. Then stuck them on the cream cardstock. My alphas have been outlined in a black Pro-marker pen.
I used 2 stencils on my background with texture paste along with mist splodges and sponging some white acrylic paint over the page too. Also random stamping with the bubbles dots clear stamp and grey ink.


I journalled along all the torn edges for a different look. I splattered some yellow acrylic paint over the layout and used some to add some edging to my photo.


Some of my chipboard hearts were coloured with the Firefly mist and some with the soft apple paint. The clouds were painted with white acrylic paint.


The string and cotton were just twisted round and round, then glued down under the photo.
I stamped a faux stitch stamp with grey ink around the outside edge of my layout with the Prima clear stamp.
