This is my layout for this week's CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge. Check out the challenge on http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/ [csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com] .
I loved the inspiration photo this week, with the wood bench and the window. From the evidence items I used: clear elements, wood accents, papers with same colour but different patterns, pleating and metals. From the testimony items: journal about three things about your photo, a clear or vellum pocket.
I decided to do my layout on a printed transparency base. Some fun things to do with a clear layout base is to build layers with stamps and rub-ons, and to place things both behind and in front of the acetate. Clear layouts are hard to photograph. I placed it on a white paper for the photo here.
The layout is about the three things that our little boy finds scary. Ghosts, monsters etc are not at all scary, but vacuum cleaners, showers and jumping castles are very scary indeed. Especially vacuum cleaners, they are the most frightening thing in the whole world. Jumping castles make a similar sound, which is probably why they are also not to be trusted.
The three stars are inspired by one of the techniques Tim Holtz showed during 12 tags of Christmas. Aluminium tape was adhered to glossy cardstock, chipboard stars were used as templates and then each star was embossed with a different folder. The stars were painted with paint dabbers - mixing three colours to get the right shade of green for the green one. After they dried, they were sanded, inked with Distress Ink (Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap) and then embossed with clear powder. The powder seals the ink, which would otherwise not dry on a metallic surface. The three metallic arrows got the same treatment.
Stars were stamped with Stazon on a piece of transperancy which was used as a pocket for the journaling. The woodgrain background is also stamped. Two pieces of Core'dinations cardstock were embossed with different patterns, sanded and stitched in place behind the layout.TFL!!
