CSI case file #114

Hello and welcome! I am sorry I missed last week's CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration case file. Here is the case file for this week:
And my layout:
From the evidence I used: circles, rub-ons, and numbers. I was inspired by the name theme of the testimony and wrote about a new funny saying by my son, that he is a little bit shy of someone 'because I don't know his or her surname'. The green paper was in my stash of gelli printed paper and I cut it into the same shape as on the sketch. The journaling is on the tag behind the photo.

For the background, I used watercolour paper and applied gesso on top with a palette knife. I pressed a paint lid into the gesso to make circles. When the gesso was dry, I coloured it with a yellow Gelato, using water and a paint brush to give it a watercolour look. The dots were inked with Red Geranium Archival Ink through a Tim Holtz Bubble stencil.

I stamped the background with a coffee stain stamp and with this great number stamp, both by Tim Holtz.

I also used some rub-ons, tissue tape and new Idea-ology Alpha Parts plastic words and arrows.

The potty man was masked and to make him stand out more I drew around him with a pen.

Thank you for stopping by!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
