Hello! Today I have another layout to share as a Guest Detective this month at CSI. In case you are not familiar, CSI is a weekly scrapbook challenge site that encourages one to try new colors schemes and to tell your stories. Here's the current CSI challenge:
I created a layout featuring a Christmas photo of Meredith and Connor that was taken years ago.The background was created using several die cut pieces of paper that I made using a variety of acrylic paints and the Gelli Arts Printing Plate. I die cut the photo using a Die-namics Stitched Circle STAX die, layered it another then embellished with a couple of Red Hot Poinsettias.
For lots of texture and design, I added several die cut Kraft stars that I rolled through the paper crimper as well adding even more texture using the Stargaze Stencil.
Once I had everything adhered in place, I randomly stamped the polka dot and chicken wire images from Distressed Background Blocks:Here is how I incorporated the different elements from the story:
I used ALL of them
Stars, Circle, Paint, Distressing, Metal
I used the Inspiration words joy and season in my journaling
For sketch inspiration, I referred to one of the awesome Page Drafts sketches:
Thanks so much for visiting! For some amazing inspiration, please visit the CSI site and see what all the other designers created. I hope you join along in the fun!
