Lots going on over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration this month! One exciting announcement is a new collaboration with Scrap365, the UK's biggest and best scrapbooking magazine. Now, CSI will have a Scrap365 case file every other month, to coincide with the publication of the latest issue of Scrap365. Congrats to CSI for the feature in this month's issue! Now, on to the case file.
Here is my layout. The journaling is on the back of the page and talks about having the opportunity, during a recent train ride from Boston to Northern MA, to really "see" my daughter, without distraction. Hence, the title..."Today I See You." :-)
I used a lot of elements received in my spring/summer Citrus Twist kits, such as the washi tape, little velum sailboat, vintage jewel brad and flair button. I also grabbed some old supplies that weren't getting much love, like the scrap of leftover doily, and the rub-on "I see..."
Because the black and shadowing of the photo is so dramatic, I tried to pull a lot of black in throughout the page. My Tim Holtz stamps and masks came in handy, but not in the traditional way. Instead of using the actual stamps, I fussy-cut the plastic printed place markers that come in the stamp kits, to mark where each stamp gets stored. Then I did the same with the plastic masking place markers and just glued them all on the page. I liked the texture and the deep hue of the black that the plastic images produced on the page.
And, as promised, here is Sanna's awesome video tutorial. Thanks for stopping by!
