This is may layout for this week's CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge, #40. You can find it here: http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/forum/topics/case-file-no-40-case-closes-on-october-14-2012 [csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com]
Such a fun and happy case file this week. My layout started out bright, then went through three different backgrounds and ended up being more earthy. From the evidence items I used: ribbon, dots, circular elements, label, transparent stuff, numbers. I tied a ribbon to my journaling spot and the journaling is about both the happy and the wish and the birthday theme. For the large circle I used a Tim Holtz kraft resist paper which was inked with Peeled Paint Distress Stain using a circular motion. I white embossed some dots and numbers on it and realised that some of the embossing powder got stuck on the resist parts of the paper (where there is a varnish). I thought it looked cool, so instead of brushing it off, I melted the powder. The bird and black circles were stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.
The Tim Holtz crinkle ribbon was dyed with Mustard Seed Distress Stain and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. The colours blended together a bit, making some of the yellow parts look orange.
Every year, I use a photo or two from my birthday and do a layout where I write about the year that has past. The journaling is on the tag behind the circle. It is pretty personal normally, as this is one of my most personal layouts every year.
I saw someone else use this clock die to frame a part of a photo, I am sorry I really can't remember where I saw it now. It worked with both the circle and time theme of this layout. I cut it from yellow patterend paper and stamped it with an envelope pattern stamp. TFL!!
