Hello all and a happy December 1st to you!
I'm back with the first of the Decembers CSI- Color, Stories Inspiration case files for you to solve.
Here is the December 1st case File
Here is how I solved the case file
My evidence used:
* Christmas winter elements
* wood, silver - chipboard snowflakes & silver stickles, glitter, thread
* ribbon/ string - silver thread
* circular elements - background stencilling
* something fuzzy - white gauze material
* glitter - Stampendous Silver Halo glitter mix
My Testimony used:
* Tuck your story inside something -journaling is tucked away behind the photo on a tag.
Now for some details:
The background paper is two different papers from BoBunny Snowfall collection and Powder Mountain collection, 6" of one and 6" of another stuck on a 12x12 cardstock.
The background has texture paste through a stencil to create the circular elements.
I then swept some green paint over the papers and texture paste randomly with brush.
The photos are layered up on corrugated blue card from Fancy Pants. I tore the oblongs to fit my photos with some card showing to keep the shabby feel to the elements. These layers are then popped up on some cardboard to lift off of the background paper.
The Wycinanka laser cut chipboard snowflakes I left plain. These are quite white in their raw state so are perfect for snowy/ white themed pages. All I did was add some silver stickles glitter glue to parts of the to make them sparkle.
Behind the paper layers I pushed some of the white gauze material to give a soft flowing feel of snow to the layout.
I cut some long lengths of silver embroidery thread and dropped and dangled it over the embellishments.
The beautiful Prima Marketing flowers were simply placed under and over the layers and then had a little silver glitter added to them
The finishing touches were the large white seed beads dropped around the flowers and embellishments and then the Silver Halo glitter scattered around to. This glitter is fabulous for mixed media because it has glitter pieces of different sizes in its mix with gives a wonderful effect when large amounts a left to drift across places on a layout.
Lastly a few Stickles glitter dots around the design and a little paint round the paper edges and its done!
We trust we've left enough clues for you to solve the case!
