I got right on my project for this week's CSI case file. The colors are so happy and sunny. Nice at this time of year when things are bleak and dark. I am also playing along with the Frosted Designs sketch challenge. Jenny Evans had an awesome sketch for this round and I love it!
I pulled out some photos I took last summer on a trip to my mom's house in Missouri. We went on a hike one afternoon (not used to doing that in such high humidity,lol) along this pretty little trail. There were these cute little yellow flowers and as I came up to one, I saw a pretty little butterfly sipping nectar. The butterfly was so nice and let me take a photo of him.
We hiked down into a creek bed that was sort of dark and spooky and I found some tree roots that had cool designs in them. I thought it would be perfect to add this photo since one of the evidence prompts was to use wood grain accents. I also made a strip of wood grain using my Big Shot and made the grain stand out by applying a dark distress ink on the raised area. I pleated some fabric to cover both the use of fabric and pleats. And, finally, I added some painted, metal brads. For my testimony, I used the tell three things prompt.
