CSI #120 Live...

We have a magical case file at CSI this week!  Fun colors, fun evidence prompts, and great journaling inspiration!

Here's the file.

And here's my take on it.   CLICK HERE to see what the rest of the talented design team came up with.

For my evidence, I chose a mixed media background, gesso and wet medium (gelatos, Heidi Swapp mist in chartreuse, and Mod Podge magic medium in clear).  Then I chose the inspiration prompt to write a haiku...I used that prompt liberally, as the sentiment is more than 3 lines, but it's still where I pulled inspiration from. ;-)

I handcut part of a photo of my daughter kissing a hummingbird that we use as garden decor and popped it up to give it dimension.  Then I made some clouds using modeling paste and the remnants of a sheet of chipboard clouds as a stencil.  I put some directly on the background, and some others on paper, which I then handcut.  The sun and moon are a great little stamp I've had forever, colored with a yellow marker and then glazed with the Mod Podge.

My mom grabbed the flower stamp for my sister's shower (we gave the guests little packets of wildflowers) and I loved it here with the sentiment about growing and laying down roots and memories.  I colored a few of them with gelato.

And there you have it!  I hope you will play along with us.  

Have a great weekend!!
