Well it's Friday evening here and a new case file has opened over at CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration)! This month C'est Magnifique is their sponsor and we've been asked to join in as Guest Detectives :). Today they have a fabulous case full of beautiful colors and tons of inspiration/journaling prompts.
Here is what I came up with...
For my "evidence"
requirements I used book papers (probably my favorite part of this
layout) to create the layering detail beneath my photo. This idea came
to me by accident- I'd intended to layer some wrinkled book pages behind
my photo but the pages were to big so I was tearing them into smaller
pieces. I ended up not liking the look of them behind the photo- but I
started playing with the torn strips, wrinkling them up and distressing
them a bit- and this is what I came up with! :)
used a bird (which also happens to be wood bird by Kaiser Craft,
another evidence option), gesso, border punches, and florals! So I went a
little crazy with the evidence- but those are all things I use anyways,
so it was pretty easy ;).
For my testimony, I created a
little book that is titled "Book of You"- which actually came from my
title "Boy"...since the initials of Book of You is boy...I know, a
little corny and most people would never catch that- but it works :). I
made a list of what Wyatt is like at age 4 1/2- both the good and the
bad!! I love my oldest child with all my heart...but he makes me fear
what's to come with my younger two- it's been a TOUGH couple of years!!
He's always seeking his independence and testing the limits at every
opportunity!! But that is what they're supposed to do and I'm told 5
gets better...so we shall see!
Finally, for my title I've used the "Boy- script" wordlet title from Scrap FX:
