This month at CSI we are celebrating the Queen's birthday and her 60 years on the throne.  This week's colors are the patriotic colors of England, but happen to be our own too.  I took some photos on my birthday weekend of a pair of eagles and thought they are the closest thing to royalty we have here in the US and that is what I did my layout on.  One of the embellishment prompts was to use a crown.  Doesn't he just rock the crown?!?  I also used wet mediums, corrugation, fibers, and patterned trim.  I love the wavy pattern that I gesso painted.  I painted over the template and then flipped it and used the painted up backside.  Gave it some cool texture.

Love the added crown! Also the flag-like look to your layout. Very creative!

Awesome take on this Case File, Laura!! Love the painted stripes for the flag and the rick rack ribbon. And your misting looks really awesome on this one!
