I am so excited to share my first page for the CSI design team today. Here is the challenge:
Aren't those colours gorgeous? You may have noticed that I have used a lot of sunburst patterns recently - I got a new sunburst mask a few weeks ago and I am totally loving putting it to good use. The sunburst shape really focuses the eye on the central photo and makes it 'pop'. When I first saw the colours for this challenge I was using my i-pad and the green colour looked turquoise. So I based my background on this colour which is slightly bluer than the actual challenge colour. Lesson learned, I'll check the colours on my PC before starting next time lol. Anyway I sprayed my background cardstock with 'sea mist' spray ink using the sunburst mask. Then I overlayed a sheet of American Craft 'cloud' vellum (love this stuff sooooo much!) on top of the cardstock so that the sunburst shows through. Cool eh!
I flicked some white spray ink over the whole background using an old toothbrush. I layered up lots and lots of gorgeous Studio Calico and American Craft goodies around my photo.
I am completely in love with the 'Maggie Holmes' line from Crate Paper and I especially adore the 4"x'4" fabric 'polaroid' style frames. They are a perfect size for framing a cropped 6x4 photo. Here I have layered two frames together and mounted my photo over the top of where they overlap.
From the 'evidence' I used flowers, circles and paint and I journaled on strips to fulfil the 'testimony' criteria.
I added these gorgeous pearls as the finishing touch to give a little extra 'girlie bling' to the page. Hope I have inspired you to head over to CSI and look at the other amazing pages from the DT members and have a try at the challenge yourself. There are great prizes and guest DT spots to be won!!
