CSI Case file No 123

It has been a while but I just couldn't go past this case file from CSI.  I have always loved their challenges I think because they definitely challenge you at a higher level.  This one sure did that, but in the main I love that it challenged me to document a pretty important part of our life 'the story of our relationship'  I found another wedding photo not yet scrapped and it couldn't have been more perfect... funny how that happens sometimes!

Here is the layout I created:
Here also is the challenge I was working to:
I solved the case with a mixed media background, jewels in the form of glitter, stamping (was on the background I started with) and mistable elements (lots of spraying going on in this one)

I also wrote a story in the form of a fairytale.

Here is a video showing how the layout came together:
 I had so much fun creating this and being challenged by the case file.  I also love that it inspired me to document how the two of us met which I hadn't yet done :)

I'll leave you with some more detail pictures so you can get up nice and close with the layout

I used some of my favourite products in creating this layout:
Tinby Designs Metallic Melts in Patina
Spellbiners Flutter tree die set and the Blooms Four set
The Crafter's Workshop window screen stencil - a long time favourite.  
Faber-Castel Design Memory Craft Gelatos, papercrafter crayons and whipped Spackle
Imagine Crafts irRESISTibles

You can see how I used them in the video, so be sure to head on over and check it out :)

Also to let you know if you don't already, I will be teaching a mixed media layout at the Papercraft and Scrapbook Expo in Brisbane June 7-9.  I think there is a spot available on the Saturday and a couple on the Monday after I opened some more spots after previously selling out so quick.  Unfortunately due to room size no futher spots will be opened once sold out.
