Today I am sharing my layout for this week's CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge. Sizzix is sponsoring CSI during March and there is a prize to be won. Some of my design team mates from Sizzix are also joining CSI as guest designers. Don't miss all the layouts. Since this is the second case file of the month, we have another great sketch from Page Drafts included in the case file:
This sketch was perfect for a series of photos:
I sanded around each photo to make them stand out a bit more, since they are pretty busy. I used different BasigGrey papers and some kraft-core cardstock. The background paper was stamped with Archival Vermillion ink, for a tone-on-tone effect. Did you notice that the layout is not completely square? I forgot to cut off the little name strip at the base of the patterned paper, and only realised it once I saw the photo of the layout in my computer.
Picture Wheel die, and just happened to have bought a viewmaster to my son recently. It was die cut from grey paper. The same day I made this we had gotten a parcel with this 'Alfons' sticker on top, which was perfect for the layout and fit right on top of the Picture Wheel. It had been torn so I had to piece it together. The two blueprint light bulbs were stamped on watercolour paper and watercoloured with Iced Spruce. The mini filmstrip was die cut from kraft-core cardstock and sanded a bit. The green paper was die cut with the Torn Notebook On the Edge die.
gears and stars were die cut from white mat board and inked with Citrus Adirondack and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Then they were coated with Glossy Accents, which gives them a really nice and finished look.
die cut from kraft-core and sanded. The title translates 'Laugh'.
Thank you for looking! I hope you have time to join us this week.
Enjoy your weekend!
