Wild thing - CSI 241

Hallo there.  I have had this page lying unfinished on my work space for ages.  I eventually finished it this past weekend and want to upload it before this CSI challenge closes.  I like to challenge myself to do the Color Story Inspiration challenges because it takes me out of my comfort zone where colour choices are concerned and I have to think outside my box to include the evidence and testimony that it requires.  This is my page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Yellow and Woodgrain (Crate Paper), Red stripe (My Minds Eye) Script (Amy Tan Plus One), Vellum: Studio Calico; Cardstock:  American Craft; Letter Stickers:  American Craft paperback fabric stickers; Chipboard: Blue Fern Studio; Gears:  Finnabair Mechanicals, Enamel chevrons:  My Mind Eye; Puffy Stars:  Bella BLVD, Stickers:   Echo Park; Embroidery Floss:  DMC; Mists: Prima Bloom Storm Cloud; Other Mediums:  Texture Paste, Rust Paste (Finnabair); Stencil:  The crafters workshop; Stamp:  Studio Calico.

The Color Story Inspiration case file:

This is how I solved the case file:

Sketch:  used

The Scheme:  All 5 colours used.

Evidence:  stripes, stars, woodgrain, chevron arrows, vellum

Testimony:  i dded stars to my journaling spot.

Some close ups:
 I stenciled grey mist through a stencil and added a layer of vellum behind my page.

 Stamped chevrons and enamel chevrons.

 The rust technique on the Blue Fern Chipboard is what I enjoyed most about this layout.  I just love the effect it adds to the chipboard.

 I have had these alphabet stickers in my stash for many good to see it on a page.

 The stars added to the journaling spot.

 I used texture paste through a Tim Holtz stencil to create the stripes on the yellow paper.

The Finnabair mechanical gears are the perfect addition.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Do play along with these challenges if you want to make a dent in your stash.
