Hello everyone!! Creative Embellishments is one of many sponsors this month over at CSI and this is my take on Case File 160!
Just a reminder, here are the details for the case:
(I highlighted all my "evidence" and "testimony" details in red! This is my VERY FIRST time playing along with CSI and it was quite enjoyable :-) )
Here's a look at my page using last month's "Out of the Blue" Kit from Frosted Designs:
I started by creating a background to the bottom half of the frame (or decorative border, whichever you prefer!) using a mixture of Gelatos and Lindy's Magicals over a primed surface (gesso). I did some second generation stamping using one of the Damask Stamps from the Damask Stamp Set, then added texture with glitter paste and a Tim Holtz Stencil :-)
I used a transparent overlay for my pic and some paper ribbon to frame it with a circle!
I used Tim Holtz "Forest Moss" Distress ink to edge my papers for the green color, then distressed slightly with my scissors. I tucked my journaling behind my photo, documenting our trip to Jamaica and Grand Cayman aboard Carnival Cruise Lines! I also used a Prima metal "This Way" sign for the subtitle as shown in the sketch :-)
I finished the page with a variety of flowers and a "Journey" flair piece (travel element) from the Nautical Set l Flair set in the CE Store!
Here's a close-up of the second generation stamping behind my photo piece, and also the heart I added that was inspired from the picture scene!
Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
