CSI Case file 98

Hello everyone!
Boy, have we had an eventful week!
Every afternoon - thunderstorm, even some in the evening
and in the middle of the night. Let's just say that our
bed has been very crowded this week ;0)
This week's case file at CSI is so fun and bright - but it has
that most dreadful color in it - I know I'm not the only one
who dislikes purple right??!??!
But doesn't it look lovely? I can see me sleeping in a bedroom like this!
I might have to add this picture to my reno list!
Here is my take on the case file.
I choose buttery yellow as the predominant colour.
I simply mottled some acrylic paint onto my background
paper with a thick brush. I liked how it
turned out with the uneven tones and the fact that you cans see
the background paper underneath - it's like
a cheap way of masking ;0)

I mad a pocket out of patterned paper where I put my
journaling strips. I talk about how difficult
it is to get a decent photo of the 4 kid - but how much
I love this one because I can see their personalities shining through!
The paper clip is one of many I picked up from Officeworks - don't
tell anyone but I'm slightly obsessed with that shop!
The heart is so cute and way too easy to use - I find myself adding one or two to just
about every layout now! They're from
The polaroid frames and camera is from a Crafter's Workshop
stencil I got from Artified this fabulous
mixed media store. I got the gelatos from there also which I have
used to colour in the stencilled images.
I've also used 2 Crafty chipboard film strip and
The Trinket Track resin flowers.

Could it be that maybe I am starting to loose my
fear of purple??? Hmmm...maybe ;0)
Thanks so much for dropping by!
