Dream Big



Hello friends! I'm hoping that everyone who celebrates Christmas is winding up their  preparations! Today, I am sharing a layout that I just finished for the CSI Design Team. 

Here is how I solved the Case:

Scene: All five colors used
Evidence: Christmas elements, deer or other animal, frame, tie something, flowers
Testimony: I used the inspiration word, "dreaming"



Liz named her moose Maurice and decorated him with red Christmas balls and a top hat! His antlers are approximately 79" wide! He is huge and dominates the room he is in. 


Techniques used are paper layering, paper tearing, inking, stamping, stenciling, heat embossing, spritzing and lots of paint splattering. 


Liz dreamed big and that's what she got...a very big moose!

The journaling reads, "Elizabeth has been dreaming of having a moose head for many years.

A friend she has known since junior high, has lived in Alaska for some time now told her that he found a taxidermied moose at a garage sale.

Her friend had the moose shipped down to "the lower forty eight" and it arrived at Liz's home just in time for 'Christmoose'!"

  2. I love the paint spattering and embossing, Patty! It looks frosty and snowy! It's so fun when you've longed for something for so many years and eventually find it! Yay for Liz! :)

  3. One thing I have noticed about certain sites is that, even though they have tons of content, the site looks great and the headlines are eye catching is that the material is simply filler. It’s downright unreadable. You can forget it 6 seconds after you read it. Not the case with your post though, really enjoyed it reading it and it held my attention all the way through! Keep it up.
