Hello my lovely visitors and welcome to my blog.
Meg's Garden is one of the sponsors over at CSI for the month of June and a few of our DT girls are Guest Detectives. As I don't Scrapbook, I could not take part, but I decided to use the Case File to create a project of my own.
This is the current Case File ...
... to see the full details, find it HERE.
For this case I decided to create a double Art Journal page.
I first laid down some scraps of Meg's Garden 'Correspondence' papers and sprayed directly onto the page with 'Sugar Plum Fairy' Glimmer Mist.
I will leave a list of Meg's Garden Products at the end of this post.
I then scrunched up a paper towel, sprayed it with 'Afraid of the Dark' Glimmer Mist and pounced it around the page. I also used this technique with more of the 'Sugar Plum Fairy'. I absolutely love the textured look you end up with from using this method to apply the colour. It's so soft and pretty. You get a better idea of what I mean in this photo.
My bit of green is on this gorgeous image which is from the 'Vintage Ladies Microscope Art Sheet''. I also brushed some 'Sugar Plum Fairy' around the edges of the paper strips and added some splats for a bit more definition although most of that got covered over. Used some Kaisercraft Background and Border Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black and also used the same ink to create some more splats around the page. Added a little texture with TCW's Mini Tile Stencil and some home made texture paste.
My bit of pale blue is on the 'Vintage Trinkets' which were firstly swiped with gesso and then brushed with some Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Spray in 'Whale Watch Blue'.
I love that heart stamp. It was a freeby that came with a crafting magazine. The clock and the clock hands were cut from the 'Old World Time' Transparency Sheet.
The background on this page was created exactly the same way. Same papers, same colours, same stamps. Here though I've added a butterfly cut from the 'More Butterflies' Transparency Sheet, and the Oval Trinket was brushed with a mix of gesso and Viva Precious Metal Colour in 'Olive'.
Here is a closie of the butterfly and you can see more detail of the background too.
Another clock hand also cut from the 'Old World Time' Transparency sheets. Meg does stock metal clock hands in the shop too but, unfortunately, I didn't have any on hand.
With these Case Files you have to use all the 'Colours', at least two items from the 'Evidence' and at least one item from the 'Testimony'.
Well, I have used all the 'Colours' although perhaps not in the right shades but I totally got caught up in the moment when creating these pages that I completely forgot about the Evidence and the Testimony. It is pure luck that I actually have metal and a flower on my pages which does cover the 'Evidence' but this was certainly not planned. There is definitely no 'Testimony'.
Just as well I wasn't in on the GD spot isn't it?? Totally went off the rails, but I so enjoyed creating this and I am so happy with the result. Hope you like it too.
