CSI Case File No 78

Are you here for my June/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course :)

Hi everybody! I am currently on my way to the fabulous Hunter Valley Gardens to enjoy the Snow Time fun as well as the chocolate festival mmmm chocolate. Ok so I might come back a few kilos heavier but I promise the diet starts next week LOL.

Today I wanted to quickly share a layout that I created for the current case file over at CSI Color Stories Inspiration. You can click here to visit CSI and join in the fun too.

Here is the details for Case File No 78

Now the idea of this challenge is to use all the colours, at least 2 pieces of evidence and at least 1 of the testimony options in your journalling.

Here is my take on the challenge using papers from Carta Bella & My Minds Eye…

The evidence that I have used includes Heidi Swapp Color Shine Paint Splatters (paint), Tim Holtz Ideaology Film Strip  (transparent object), Alpha Stickers (stickers) and My Minds Eye Enamel Dots (something glossy).

To create the background effect, I have used Heidi Swapp 6×6 Polkadot Stencil with 2 different shades of Distress Inks and a Blending Tool. I have then sprayed some Mustard Color Shine into the centre and dripped a few splatters in 2 corners.

Well that is it from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and I would love for you to leave me a comment so I can come visit you too.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

My Minds Eye June Sketch Challenge

Are you here for my June/July Giveaway? Click here for more info after you have read this post of course :)

Hi everyone! I decided to do some more challenge playing before the month’s end and this time I have played along with the fabulous My Minds Eye June Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch and you can see the challenge on the My Minds Eye Blog here.

And here is my take on the sketch. I have added a few layers which of course is what I seem to do too often LOL. I have used the My Minds Eye Unforgettable Collection Papers for this layout on some Kraft Cardstock.

I have ripped and sliced various pieces of the My Minds Eye Unforgettable Papers and then doodled randomly on some as well.

I have added some Pink Paislee Mist-a-bles Arrows to the layout which I have coloured using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a paint brush to create an ombre effect.

I have also added a Black Sequin Heidi Swapp arrow as well as a piece of an A2Z Scraplets Scalloped Chipboard banner which has simply been coated with white paint and then doodled on.

I decided to add a Pink Paislee Artisan Element circle over the photo which has been coloured slightly with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and then I have added some American Crafts Chipboard Thickers which I have sanded back to create a more distressed look.

Final touches included some Black Dylusions Ink Splatters, Some very random machine stitching and doodling then voila!

Well that is it from me today. Hopefully I can still fit in one more challenge entry before the month’s end. Until next time, happy scrapping!
