This is my take on case file #114 at CSI, with the fab sketch designed by Em Stafrace (love Em's sketches!). Here's the case file:
This is how I solved the case:
Sketch - checked.
Scheme - all colors are there.
Evidence - numbers, loopy border, rub-ons, circles.
Testimony - I was inspired both by the theme of the photo inspiration and the inspiration word 'trouble'. My youngest is such a prnkster...can't you just say it by the look on his face? being a SPD & ADHD child, he is on a high level of adrenalin, most of the time. All the saying on this lo are rub-ons about this theme. On the tag, behind the photo, I wrote: "Me: What trouble did you get into again? You: I don't know, Mom, I didn't look for troubles, they just seem to be looking for me." And I say that I can totally relate to the big saying on this lo - "If you have to obey all the rules, you miss all the fun"... well, you know what they say - 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree'... :))).
I used Kaisercrafts pp for the V shape and some of their rub-ons for the saying. for the matting of the photo and the banners I used Webster Pages, LillyBee Design and Simple Stories. the redish doilies are fussy cutting of My Mind's Eye pp. On the background I used Studio Calico circle mask with gesso, and then lots of mists. I also used Stampers Anonymous' circles stamp and Prima's stitches stamps. the arrows are Bella Blvd stickers and the stars were punched from scraps. the flourish is a chipboard from Creative Embellishments, and I painted it with gesso, distress stain and heat embossed with crackle embossing powder, and then with some perfect pearls touches.
I would like to enter this lo also for the current challenge at Scrap Africa, which asked for stars.
Here are some close-ups on the details:
