Case File 209 ** CSI - color, stories, inspiration**

Hello All,

It's reveal day of the latest Case File at CSI - color, stories, inspiration, so here we are with my interpretation of Case File #209. I scraped about my DS and a football tournament he was part of earlier this year with his football team. He dreams of being a football player when he grows up. I believe he can be whatever he dreams of being.

                                                              This is the case file.

I used all the colours.

My Evidence used was:

* Wood
* dangle something
* metal
* decorative border

My Testimony used was:

* Journal on 3 separate spots

Here are some close ups of my layout.

This photo shows my 'dangling' element. The football is hanging from a paper strip and bobbles around. My 3 journaling spots are on tabs added to the layers.

My basic design is the big football. I cut one side off and stuck each piece on opposite sides of my cardstock. The stencilling I did with a Graphite coloured texture paste.

The wooden title I painted with gesso and then with the frosty Sky paint, thickly in places to add texture.

I added football related words randomly around the layout with the edges inked up.
