CSI Case Study #1

There's a new colour challenge site in town and it's pretty cool!  It's CSI - Colour, Stories, Inspiration - and the whole idea is fabulous!  There is the "Scene" which is the colour palette... with 5 colours!  Then there is "Evidence" which are a list of items to include on your layout and finally the "Testimony" which is the journaling base/ideas to go with it all!!

This is the Scene for Case Study #1: chartreuse green / dark moss green / goldish-yellow / red / greenish-gray

And here is my layout - I got to play Guest Designer!!
{yeah, in the CSI Frame because I think it's pretty cool}

Now what's better than a new Colour Challenge site... the fact that Dusty Attic is sponsoring them for their first month and there will be a yummy Dusty Prize Pack up for grabs, so go check them out, have a play and join in and you could get Dusty with us!!

So some closeups:

One of my new faves from Dusty, the Corner Flourish #1... here I have trimmed it to fit the flower cluster.  It was painted cream, then dabbed with LSG Starburst Stain {Cajun Carnelian Red}, dried and them embossed randomly with LSG Terracotta Rust, Ranger Liquid Platinum & Tarnished Gold, and then sprinkled with Metal Skin Glitter by Alison Ellis.

A mix of flowers here with some Green Tara Roses finishing them all off perfectly {they always have just the right sizes to make a cluster 'work'}

Some Prima Bling... and also a Resin Flower from Handmade Halo, the grey/green of it was PERFECT for this colour palette!

And lastly a sweet PinkPaislee Butterfly flittering away around some die-cut Shadow Flowers by Donna Salazar for Spellbinders.
