I was cruising around the web for a little inspiration when I stumbled upon CSI. Has anyone else had a go at their challenges? Well I hadn't as I found it a bit of a brain strain with all the requirements, ..... my creative process is just not that organized!!!!
However, I fell in love with the colour scheme and just had to have a go. So after reading through, and working out how to actually enter (it is set up more like a forum rather than just using links) it really was not that hard once I got my head round it. Why not give it a go yourselves.
This is what they give you as prompts, very cool way of doing things:
Here is what I came up with......This is a Girlie page!
I know very rare around these parts!!!!
The sweet girls are my nieces with their beloved dogs. Such a special photo as one of those precious dogs Melba is no longer with us.
As I said I loved the colours and I so wanted to use some of the new releases from Scrap FX. That totally retro flower is loads of fun to play with and the stencil has so many bits to isolate, love that sort of versatility.
For the background I used texture paste to pick out the "bits" of the stencil I wanted to use. Then sprayed randomly (as always). That was not enough for me, so after it was all dry (well almost, very impatient) I grabbed the stencil again and sprayed in some flowers over the top of the paste areas, finally I was satisfied!
I treated the chippies with my favorite technique at the moment.... embossing. I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Powders.... you cannot beat them!
I have mixed the golds with some bronze to create a bit of depth, and the shine on those gold powders?!! Wow... look amazing.
( I loved them so much I went & placed another order with them,... bad girl!!!)
I have to say I had a heap of fun completing the challenge. I did not think I would, so I think I highly recommend it. So if you need a little inspiration, take a visit and see what you think.
What challenge sites does everyone else do? I am in the mood to push myself out of my comfort zone. Would love to hear some feedback, but be warned Pink and Purple are my Kryptonite, that is just going too far!!! LOL
Thanks for visiting, Hugs,
