CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration and Swirlydoos

Did you know that Swirlydoos is a monthly prize sponsor for CSI:challenge?

Yep, They have been all year and the DT occasionally plays along with the challenges. Well this month we once again joined in. The case file was a beautiful neutral palette.

 

CSI is changing the rules up a bit. You can now be inspired by just the scene or you can use the above evidence and testimony. Either way, you still have to use the color scheme to start your layout.

Before I show you my layout, let me tell you how was inspired to create it. I used the case file as my inspiration starting with the evidence (choosing 3 clues). My 3 clues are flowers/leaves, string and fussy cutting. Those tickets layered under my photo were fussy cut from an ephemera sheet.

I also took some inspiration from the scene. In the bottom left corner is some block writing, I thought that writing looked the same as the writing on the title block I used.

I created a rustic layout with this neutral palette. I just loved the colors, they had a serene, nature type feel to me. I used papers from 49 and Market, chipboard from Creative embellishments and just some random flowers. I used the Prima rust paste on the chipboard to try and mimic the tree bark in the photo. I think it turned out pretty good.

Don't miss your chance to enter this fun challenge and win some amazing prizes. You might just win the GC to Swirlydoos and you can pick up one of our amazing kits.

 

That's all I have for now, so thanks for stopping by.
