Happy Saturday! This week we have a fun and happy case file at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:
And my layout:
From the evidence items I used: ribbon, dots, circular elements, label, transparent stuff, numbers. I tied a ribbon to my journaling spot and the journaling is about both the happy and the wish and the birthday theme. For the large circle I used a Tim Holtz kraft resist paper which was inked with Peeled Paint Distress Stain using a circular motion. I white embossed some dots and numbers on it and realised that some of the embossing powder got stuck on the resist parts of the paper (where there is a varnish). I thought it looked cool, so instead of brushing it off, I melted the powder. The bird and black circles were stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.
The Tim Holtz crinkle ribbon was dyed with Mustard Seed Distress Stain and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. The colours blended together a bit, making some of the yellow parts look orange.
The label was die cut with Eileen Hull's Sizzix Labels & Buttons die.
Every year, I use a photo or two from my birthday and do a layout where I write about the year that has past. The journaling is on the tag behind the circle. It is pretty personal normally, as this is one of my most personal layouts every year.
As you know, I love text and alphabet stamps, this one comes from Wendy Vecchi. I stamped in on a piece of acetate with Stazon Platinum ink.
Thank you for looking! I hope you can join us this week!
