Guest Designing for CSI
Case File #58

"Magical Memories"

Hello everyone. Thanks for calling by.
So happy to be "Guest" Designing for CSI again this week.
2 Crafty chipboard are sponsoring CSI this month so the
2 Crafty DT girls & myself are playing along. So much fun.


Again another fantastic case to solve as well
as a fabulous sketch by the talented  Emma Stafrace.

Obviously I have used lots of gorgeous 2 Crafty chipboard
on my layout, including...
Parisian Border
Title...Magical Memories
Mini Film Strip
Fencing Wire Panel


For my "Evidence" I have used five things.
1. Wood (clock tucked in the right side)
2. Metal (a couple of metal washers  & a quote strip)
3. String     4. A jagged edge
5. Washers (I have painted them to look a bit grungy)

For my "Testimony" I have written about a comparison, 
then & now, & tucked it in behind the left photo.


I have given my chipboard border & title a bit of a "Faux" 
metal treatment using some texture medium & then some gorgeous 
metalic paints sponged on. 
The Mini Filmstrip  is simply just painted with acrylics.


Some beautiful Green Tara flowers & leaves plus a few old ones 
I had tucked away in my stash to soften & add texture to the page.


A little bit of background treatment, 
a little bit of leftover Fencing Wire Panel tucked under a few flowers,
 some sewing & a little paint & gesso thrown around, & all done.

Thanks so much for calling by & I hope you too might find
some time to join in the fun over at CSI.
It really is an amazing challenge site.

Until next time.
