9 Birthdays | CSI

Our August Cold Case file at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration has gone live; and it’s another beaut!

No photo description available.

I immediately thought of this image as one of birthdays and / or milestones. And seeing as how my daughter has recently celebrated her 9th birthday, I went ahead and took total advantage of that theme! Here’s what I created:

I used most of the colours in the inspiration image for this one.
I used a number as part of my title and sentiment. This photograph is of my daughter just before her birthday party started. Inspiration I drew from the image was polka dots, birthday elements, and a grid design.

Here are a few more images taken of my layout:

What a sweet inspiration image for our second reveal for August, at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration:

No photo description available.

This image just gave me holiday and relaxation vibes – so I went with that as my ‘theme’.

I used blue, white, pink, yellow and green.
For my overall design, I tried to ‘copy’ the design of the inspiration image, basing it as a rectangle. I used proteas and other flowers, just as in the image and I also used stripes, stitching a frame and I did a bit of a watercoloured background. The photograph is also a bit of a play on the image – my daughter with her relaxed pose and hat! My journalling is based on the IW – Dream

On the second or third day of our holiday in the Cederberg earlier this year, you made your way down to the shallow river in front of our chalet and popped yourself into your floatie… you sat there for quite some time and all I kept wondering was what on earth you were thinking about.. what dreams you were dreaming… what ponderings you were pondering…

Here are some additional pics of this layout:

Oh Baby | CSI DT Post

We have some yummy purple up amongst the stunning colour palette and beautiful mood board, today over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration!

No photo description available.

Yummy, right???

Here is how I solved this case:

My colour palette includes black and white, pink, purple and a splash of gold.

I drew inspiration from the stripes, flowers, leaves and twigs and added those to my layout. My title has slanted script, just like the main part of the title of the inspiration image. I had some chippies that looked really close to the flower print on one of the hot air balloons and the girls dress – so I added them to my layout too. I spattered with a little gold mist and also incorporated some gold elements. As the inspiration image has a fashion theme, I decided to scrap (and journal) about my daughter’s sudden fashion sense awareness!

I’m just LOVING this next phase in your growth! I am no longer able to shop for you, as you have already developed your own taste – which I keep on getting wrong, so best I just give up already!

I LOVED working with this month’s challenge at Scrap The Girls!

I decided to go with all things camera-related so added various elements as such. I’ve also added in some hearts to copy the image and also the ‘like’ option within Instagram. I used an old photo with an (old) Instagram filter and I used a rainbow of colours – again as inspiration from the image provided.

We have a wonderful sketch and mood board up this month – the board is filled with colours and a myriad of inspiration images!

I was inspired by the brighter palette, so I went with primarily those colours. I also loved the ‘bursts’ amongst the images, as well as the flowers and the friendship image inspired the title / theme of my piece. I flipped the sketch once, anti clockwise and created this:
