Music Is The Voice Of The Soul | CSI

Debbi has sourced the most adorable inspiration image for you for our mid-month reveal at CSI:

And this is how I solved the case:

I used a lime and a dark green, red, greenish-yellow and some chocolate brown.

I was inspired by the woodgrain, the musical elements, the triangles and I used some chippies that reminded me of the overall feel of the clover (in terms of the long stems). I also used strips of paper in my layering – much like the piano keys.

Those gorgeous chipboard pieces are from 2Crafty Chipboard.

Happy Birthday | CSI

I just love this image that Debbi has presented for the September Cold Case File.

Here is what I created:

So I ran with the birthday theme; this picture was taken of my daughter at her birthday this year.

I used mainly pastels – shades of teal, blue, green and pink, with a few hints of coral / apricot. I was further inspired by the butterflies and the smaller elements ‘dotted’ around on the inspiration image. I added some flowers and some leaves. My gorgeous chipboard pieces are all from 2 Crafty chipboard – aren’t they divine?

Dreaming Big | CSI

Our first challenge for September at CSI: Color Stories Inspriration, carries with it a bit of a ‘technology’ theme – check it out:

And here is the layout I created for this case:

I used black, white, red, yellow and blue. I went with a school theme and scrapped a photo of my child’s Grade 3 school photo. As inspiration from the image, I added a rounded corner frame, some ledger style papers and also paper with a grid pattern. You will also see some geometric shapes amongst my layering.

My journalling is based on a school theme.

I’m “that” mom who will order every single school or class photograph ever taken – and this is the most recent one, taken a little earlier this year. I love the enthusiastic smile on my child’s face; and I can only hope that her love for school lasts!
