I'm feeling pretty accomplished in the craft room this weekend. Even though everyone is back in the house (some are exhausted from camping) I'm still getting things done! I'm sharing a layout I did with inspiration from the second CSI challenge this month. I really liked the color combo and just happen to have the two main pattern papers I used sitting out. We stopped by the World's Fair Park in Knoxville on our way back to IL form NC during a summer trip. I have a lot of pictures from the trip, but I thought the yellow in the layout would perfect for some pictures of the sphere.
Here is a look at the CSI challenge inspiration image.
I added some 6x6 pattern papers that had the same colors and black cardstock to mat my layers with. Figured out how I wanted my lay out and got started. Since most of my papers only had two of the colors on them , I added a another pattern with 3 colors on it to tie them together a little better. I grouped the patterns together as banners in the top corner and scattered some in other areas as well.
The alpha's I used were actually black and white striped, I thought they looked to busy so I colored them with a black Copic to try and cove the white.
I will use the white space for my journaling about the sphere. There isn't a lot of room for info, but since I have other pictures I'm sure more info will make it to another page eventually. ;-) CSI recently changed the requirements for the challenges so that you don't have to use the clues, but I still like to try. I think I did alright... I used the colors as well as stipes, dots, test pattern,circles, doily, washi and puffy stickers (alphas).
I'm pleased with the way the page turned out. I sometimes get a little nervous added some pattern paper, as I feel it can get cluttered looking very easily. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
