I have to admit that I am hooked to the CSI challenges. I love that I can dig through my extensive stash and pick the colours and embellishments to solve the case file ;-) This is Case File no 89.
I chose some photo's taken at the little one's school nativity in 2011. Here is my layout:
Supplies used: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned papers: Fancy Pants (Be You); Bracket, heart chipboard, quote and title: Fancy pants (Be You); Giraffe: Jolee's, Flowers: Prima. Other: EK Success edge punch; The Crafters Workshop Cubist stencil; Neocolor II water pastels, texture paste.
I first completed my background. I used the Cubist stencil and traced the blocks onto the bazzill and then coloured them with my Neocolor II water pastels. A wet paint brush and the blocks were painted. Once it was dry I applied smaller blocks over the painted blocks with the texture paste. I love that the texture paste is translucent and allows the colours to shine through.
I love this three little ones. They are exactly 10 months apart in age and have grown up like siblings. I edged all the patterned pieces with a black edge punch.
Lastly I dressed my page with the little giraffe and some little flowers.
I used all 5 the colours, Evidence: Animal accent, polka dots, brackets, scallops. Testimony. Placed bracket next to title.
Hope you are having a lovely long weekend...if you are living in South Africa. xoxo
