Fun Chill Days | CSI DT

Our mid-month Case File at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration will definitely brighten your day!

No photo description available.

Isn’t it DIVINE!? This is how I solved the case:

I worked with 2 shades of a lighter green, white, red and black. I was immediately in love with the bright background and the bursts of red – so wanted to recreate that. I also used paper with dots, gingham and stripes. I also added some flowers from my 2Crafty Chipboard stash, leaves and hearts, as well as a scalloped border also from 2Crafty! My journalling for this piece is a March Prompt – namely ‘Everyone Needs…

Doesn’t this photograph of my daughter on our recent little holiday just say it all? Everyone needs fun, chill days! I decided that I was not going to move out of the sun on this trip, armed with a pile of books. We set this hammock up for Isabella and when she wasn’t pretending to nap in it, she also had a little read. Food for the soul, indeed!

Here are some additional photo’s of this piece:

And here is my Uber Dotty layout!

As you can see, there are dots galore on my page! I used a variety of spotty paper in my layering, as well as 2 fussy cut floral shapes and leaves. I added in that very beautiful red chipboard piece from 2Crafty Chipboard to add a little drama!

Isn’t it lovely?!? Here is my take on the mood board:

I was really drawn to the 2 images with the newspaper print, so decided to head on into that route. I also used a black and white photograph, as with the 2 images, so that the rest of my page would pop. I added lots of bold red flowers amongst my fussy cut flowers, and some pretty vine chipboard from 2Crafty Chipboard.

We have a really adorable case to kick of March over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration:

And here is how I solved this adorable case!

I worked with blue, red, white, yellow and black. I wanted to recreate the cartoon-ish feel with my layout, so I added quite a few fun little elements – including the cutest heart shaped sunglass sticker, as well as some gears and an awesome paperclip-style arrow from 2Crafty Chipboard! I used woodgrain paper, as well as some with stripes and with dots. And part of my title is a beautiful italic script from 2Crafty Chipboard. My journalling is the topic ‘document something super awesome about a kid’

This was an action shot of my little miss about to attack and tickle me. If I had to document the awesomeness of my child, I’d fill all the encyclopaedia’s in the world! Suffice it to say, my favourite in the vast list of her awesomeness, is her heart – warm, caring and considerate; loving, generous and honest.
