" Fabulous Frog "


Hello and welcome to another post for CSI (Color, Stories and Inspiration)

This is the " Major " case file 163 for the month. With the major case file you have the entire month to complete it. 
How good is that ??
The Major case file always has a brilliant sketch attached just to make it that little more interesting. The very talented Emma Stafrace composes the sketches and this one is a beauty.



I love the way the papers are on an angle on this layout, just a little different. I like to try different things, makes life interesting. What do you think about the Washi Tape placed around the edges of the layers?? I like it and think it would be awesome on a boyz page. My title was made up from a Kaisercraft stickers sheet and some Thickers.

This is " Major " Case File 163 and the sketch by Emma.
Don't forget you have the whole month to complete this one.

Case File Elements

The Scheme: medium green, turquoise green, banana yellow, porcelain white and fallow brown
The Evidence: I used.. fabric, frogs, frames, washi tape, checkered pattern, watercolour, textured paper.

Im a real fan of the clear black stickers,you
will see them on a lot of my layouts.
Die cut some smaller leaves to poke in the flower clusters.
All the chippies have been inked with Gathered Twigs distress inks.



Love the Frames around the photo which are from Scrap FX.
