MERLIN’S BEARD

CASE FILE NO 225

CSI CHALLENGE

Welcome to March. Already this year is flying past. March happens to be my favourite month, as I celebrate my birthday in the first week and lucky for me in the West (Western Australia) it always falls on a long weekend.

This month we have been asked to guest design for the CSI Challenge.

Head over to see all the other amazing designers and their work.

So here is the Case file that I have used to design my layout this month.

Merlin’s Beard
This is my completed layout based on the CSI Case File.

EVIDENCE: I have used washi tape, things that fly, animals, circles, wood, feathers, stars.
TESTIMONY: I have handwritten on my background and started with an idiom.

I have used CB1222 Feathers and CB5158 Triangles to embellish the corners. To colour the chipboard I have used Crushed Olive Distress Ink.

To frame my photo I have used the CB5138 String Circles. This has been painted with white gesso.


To create the background, I have used the ST1026 Circle Stencil.
The washi tape was a perfect fit for this layout.

The journaling says ” I snapped this pic in my front yard. This beautiful owl was perched on the tree. It was early morning. I quickly grabbed my camera and managed to get this shot. When I look at it, it reminds me of the owl from Harry Potter. HEDWIG”

So my layout had to have a Harry Potter theme. The papers from Bo Bunny’s Cambridge paper range fit with this theme perfectly.
I really enjoyed this challenge as it really was stepping out of my comfort zone. This was a first for me.

My second project is a Dreamcatcher Canvas that I have hand painted and used Scrapmatts chipboard to embellish.

For the centre of the Dreamcatcher I have used the CB4070 String Circle Roses.
I painted over the chipboard with acrylic paint.

The word is from CB6087 Assorted Words 15.
I have painted in Black Soot from Dusty Attic.

For the background I added stars with the ST5042 Star Stencil.


I then flicked gesso over the background for some added texture.

Here are the pieces I have used.
