Hi and welcome to my second post today. This month ARTastic is collaborating with CSI in a special case file.
This is the first time I've participated with the CSI challenge, so it was certainly something a tad out of my comfort zone, but in the end I enjoyed coming up with a page that fitted a number of the elements required.
From ARTastic we had a fabulous poster promoting Australia, depicting an iconic scene at a beach. Our additional element was to include a striped patterned paper. CSI added extra elements as well. On my layout I certainly have used a striped patterned paper (the background page from Fabscraps is based on a weatherboard/mural look) but I've also used stripes on my frame for my picture and on the hot air balloons. In addition, I've used a floral print, ribbon. transportation elements, created a rolled canopy, for a private beach gazebo and silhouettes. I've also journalled along stripes, used the words 'wonder' and 'gazed' as part of my story, as well as using all of the required colours.
