Here is the OUAS sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees clockwise for my layout design!
I used Bo Bunny's "The Avenues" collection for this layout - the colours were perfect for the CSI colour palette and the door motif was so appropriate for documenting a layout about my home. I distressed the papers quite heavily as I thought it suited the theme of the layout. I used the Imaginarium Designs 8x8 Honeycombe as a layering element and the There's No Place Like Home phrase for my title. Both of these chipboard pieces were primed with black gesso and then painted with Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze in Carmen to give them a deep black/red colour.
Here is a quick summary of how I solved the CSI Case File:
The Scheme: I incorporated all the colours.
Evidence: I have used clocks, flowers, a vintage photo, velum (something transparent) and paint (white gesso).
Testimony: I have used a typewriter font, tucked my journalling behind a door and used the inspirational words message and remember for my journalling.
