Hello! We are continuing the birthday celebrations at CSI this whole month, and this week, we are scraplifting or being inspired by a layout from the very first case file. You can find the first case file here. This is this week's case file:
I scraplifted my own layout for case file #1:
I was inspired by the design and by the tone-on-tone paint stamped background. I also used clear elements and twine. Here's my layout for this week:
I used one of my older Hero Arts stamps and stamped leaves all over the background paper with paint, aiming for imperfect impressions. More stamping was added on the background with Archival Ink Coffee, and I stamped some flower branches on the patterned paper used as a photo mat, as well as lots of sentiment stamp.
The spoon, knife and fork as well as the journal card comes from Karen Burniston's Sizzix Place Card & Silverware die and were die cut from mat board and quickly coloured with Distress Stains (Tumbled Glass, Brushed Pewter and Shabby Shutters). The Birds on a Wire were also cut with one of Karen's die, from woodgrain paper. The little bird was stamped on the journaling block and then the journaling was printed on a transparency, leaving space for the bird.
Thank you for the visit! It is a bit quiet here on the blog since I am visiting family at the moment. Enjoy your weekend!
