I remember...CSI96 32

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, November 2, 2013 @ 3:00 AM | , , , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great week! Several 13 arts DT members including myself, will be joining along as guest detectives with the talented CSI DT for the CSI challenge #96
I created a layout featuring a photo of myself that was taken on Mother's Day a few years ago holding the beautiful fully functional Vintage typewriter that my sweet husband bought for me :)
I combined pretty 13 arts patterned papers from the Frosted Life and All is love collections. Once the papers were stitched in place, I added lots of texture and design using 13 arts Ayeeda Acrylic Primer along with the Scallops stencil. I then added even more texture using 13 arts Gel Medium and 13 arts Glass Microspheres. Once dry, I added color using 13 arts Lemon Yellow Chalk Mist
Once the background was dry, I embellished with a variety of 13 arts beautiful flowers including the following: White Paper FlowersWhite TwigsYellow RosesWhite Roses and Paper Flowers White with Green:
Evidence:
typewriter accent, typewriter font, clock, sheet music, flowers, gold metal, paint
Testimony:
use a typewriter font, Inspiration word: remember
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you like my layout! Please be sure to visit the CSI site as well as the 13 arts blog for some amazing inspiration and for COMPLETE details on how you too can join in the fun!
Be Sweet ;)
