This layout was created as an entry in Case File 123 (challenge) at CSI. The colors were so yummy  to work with and I loved every minute of creative joy in the making of it!
For the scheme I used all five colors. For the evidence I used flowers, mixed media background, mistable elements (see the burlap that I misted, therefore changing the color from cream to turquoise), stamps and a border punch around the edges.  For the Testimony I chose to write it as a fairy tale. Also, I wrote the journaling in the background; directly on the paper.  

 Here is the journaling:

"Once upon a time there was a little boy who loved paper. He would create the most wonderful treasures by folding and creasing the paper. First, he started making paper planes that were sure to be faster than the air forces his friends made.

His parents bought him origami books and he would spend endless hours in his room creating cranes, tigers and dinosaurs. He would give his creations to his family, friends and teachers.

They were so impressed with his abilities that before long, everyone called him 'Paper'....and they all lived happily ever after."

 Below, you can see the spritzing, modeling paste work, stamping and embossing. Other techniques used were paper tearing and painting.
