" First Cuddle "

Hi everyone and I just can't believe how far behind I am with my blog posts so here's another one that I did recently.

This is Major case file 175 at Color, Stories and Inspiration (CSI)

As I said I am behind in my blog posts so I don't have a pic of the case file and sketch to show where I got my inspiration from.

This is a photo of my little " fur baby" when we first got her from the breeder sitting on my son's knee for the car ride home.


I painted corrugated cardstock for the background and then tore the 
patterned paper on the diagonal. The sketch called for a set of three photos
which I placed down the page.



I used striped pattern paper to put some fishtails off the photos.
Painted the large flowers  the same colour as the corrugated board.


I put the circle frames around the first photo of my baby girl
and all the chipboard was inked with black archival ink.


I used my Motex machine to ad my journalling to this layout, and then
hand wrote some of the words in different fonts. I like that look. The circles are texture
paste which I then doodled around.


I love the little wooden dogs that I have randomly put around the page 
plus some flairs and layers of pattern papers.

Case File Elements;
The Scheme: Aqua, yellow, white, light pink and grey
The Evidence: I used, polka dots, grid pattern, animals, doodling, flowers,buttons, 
The Testimony: I used the prompt to handwrite my story mixing the print and cursive. You can see it on the front of the layout.

Corrugated board
Fancy Pants "flower garden"
Plain Cardstock
2Crafty chipboard
ScrapFX chipboard
Ceramacoat paint
