Hello! Time for another gorgeous CSI case file. Sizzix is sponsoring CSI during March, and there is a fun prize to be won. The DT did a wonderful job with this case file, lots of fun mixed media stuff, don't miss it. Here's the case file:
For the background I painted a sheet of watercolour with linen acrylic paint and dry-brushed darker brown paint here and there. I played around with some to me new mediums for the texture elements. Don't miss seeing the pop-up under the photo, adding a fun interactive element to the layout.
Charming Thinlits and I cut a frame from mat board for it with Tim Holtz Sized Ovals. It was inked and stamped with a texture stamp. The three Birds on a Wire were left over from the Easter House I posted earlier this week, and fit the colours of this case file.
I smeared some left over crackle paste here and there and also added some more hearts. The circles were stamped with Olive Archival Ink and the arrows were cut with the Arrows Thinlits.
Karen Burniston Winged 3-D Hearts pop-up. I love adding these interactive elements to my layouts and they also give extra space for journaling, embellishments and photos. The pop-up was die cut from BasicGrey patterned paper and I used the coordinating heart and wing dies to cut one small heart from canvas and a heart frame and wings from patterned paper. Another little bird was placed on top of the heart and an arrow inside it. I stamped more sentiments on the inside, as well as a Townscape On the Edge die cut and a Thinlits border.
Townscape was die cut from Black Soot Core'dinations cardstock and sanded, I liked the idea of the heart flying above the houses, especially since the photo I used on the layout was taken just outside where we live.
Thank you for the visit! Have a great weekend!
