My 2Crafty April Design Team Reveal
Guest Designing For CSI
(Color, Stories, Inspiration)

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Myself & a whole lot of the other 2Crafty DT girls were invited
to be "Guest Designers" over at CSI. (Colors, Stories, Inspiration Blog).
Here is the case file. (challenge)

I really loved this case file. The colours were just perfect  for
 these pics of my little grandson.

For my EVIDENCE I have used...
Aeroplane (flair)
Stripes (tag)
String (on my tag)
Something loopy (thread behind my pics)
Numbers (chippie number panel).

For my TESTIMONY I have ...
**Added string to my journaling tag

I have also used the Sketch as well.

2Crafty Chippies Used...
Handsome Little Man - title
Number Panel
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
Stars Multi Pack

After first applying a coat of gesso to all my chippies, I then brushed on some
 pewter coloured mica powder to colour my "title". I made sure it was a bit hit
 & miss so some white showed through to give a bit of a shabby look.

For all the other chippies, including the "Number Panel", the "Mini Stars"
& also the larger "Stars", I just coloured them with some slightly watered down
acrylic paint brushed on. Again I did it quite roughly as I didn't want it to be
a solid colour, but rather a water colour type of look.

When dry I wiped them over slightly with an ink pad in a slightly different shade.

I have also done a water colour treatment on my background in a shade of 
yellow & orange Lindys Sprays to contrast with the blue of the chippies.

Little stars & a striped tag as part of my evidence.
Check out that little aeroplane on the flair too.

Well thats all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Until next time.
