Hello everyone and happy weekend! A new CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge is up. Here's the case file:
I went through a pile of photos and came up on these that I took of my first Sindy doll and thought they fit the case file pretty well. She is almost in her original clothing, just without the stockings that she came with. From the evidence I used: mixed-media background, stamps, lace, hearts, grid, leaves and clouds. Our electricity was out when I made this layout, so I couldn't check out the journaling links and had to work from memory. It is inspired by the happiness theme. The pink background was a failed gelli print (too much thick, opaque paint), but it worked quite well here. I stamped and added stenciling on top.
The patterned paper in the background is by Tim Holtz. I also used one of his new embossing folders to emboss the die cut clouds. Love that fine pattern. And a new favourite die, the Butterfly Frenzy, which die cuts a lot of small and tiny butterflies. The word stamps are by Wendy Vecchi.
Thank you for the visit! I have a lot of things to share next week, this week was quiet because we are still not 100% recovered from being sick.
