The design team at Swirlydoos was honored with guest designing for CSI again this month.
What a great sketch and color combo! Both were certainly inspiring for me. I hope you give this case file a go. You can check out the major case at CSI and see how past cases have been solved.
Here's the sketch for November.
The scene included pale grey, khaki, white, moss green, and coffee brown surrounded by leaves, branches, stamps, string, flowers and paper clips.
The evidence I found to solve the case included: text on the washi tape, textured cardstock and cardboard, Tim Holtz index clips, string, clothes pin, flowers, leaves, buttons, ribbon, and even a letter text stamp on the patterned paper.
My testimony is documenting something I love to do-scrapbooking. I was inspired by the word, "think."

Here's a quick OTP for your walls using the tech kit add for August.
The crackle medium is the perfect touch for the wooden pieces used to make the wall piece.
Here's the link for the video.

Happy day, all!
Stopping by to share the projects I created with the sweet "Sunshine" August kit of the month from Swirlydoos.
First, let me share the sketch of the month.
I liked the suggestion for deeply distressed edges in the sketch. So, I actually took a lighter and burned the edges of the background paper before mounting it on black card stock.
Here's a close up with the mix of Prima Art Stones that were painted with Prima watercolor.
A peek at the finished sketch layout. I did splatter with some Lindy's in Buccaneer Blue.
Next, I opened the technique kit add on. This month did not disappoint either.
Loved making this cute wall art.
I will share a video tutorial in a few weeks so you can see how I made this.
How about one for the All that Flutters aka ATF challenge?
I busted out the new Cricut Air to cut the hexagons.
I altered the alphas with Ingvild Bohme inks, Prima stamps, Smooch, Heidi Swapp color shine and a black pen. The chippy peeking out from behind the title was cut apart and altered with Prima Patina paste.
And, here's a butterfly kissed with the yellow glitter glue included in the kit this month.
The chippy was altered with the Prima Patina pastes and some embossing powder. I decided to include some handwritten journaling on this one.
Oh! Check out the bottle cap! I just figured out that you can run the bottle caps through the Big Shot with only one of the thinner plates + the thick metal plate and it will curl the edges of the bottle cap up. Pretty cool effect and easier to attach to the page with less bulk. Maybe this is an old trick for you but I never knew about this until I experimented last week!
