Let the Sunshine In


Boys rule....what can I say? Especially the ones that are too cute for words. I created this layout for Case File 134 over at CSI. That's Color, Stories, Inspiration for those of you who are just now following me.  
Every second week of the month a sketch is provided  at CSI by the wonderful Emma Straface and everyone wishing to participate has to create a layout through their eyes, and inspired by Emma's sketch.

Techniques used here are border punching, inking, fussy cutting, machine stitching, and 3-D work.  



Another technique used is masking, which gives the layout a lot of texture and pattern. I used one stencil for the background circles and a second stencil with modeling paste to get the desired texture.  


Also, I doodled on the elements so they would have added interest.


You can see more of the 3-D work here and how it causes everything that is popped up to stand out!
