When I created the page I am sharing with you today, I was dreaming of spring and gravel under my shoes. Here is first some inspiration for CSI case file # 54.
We are super-duper excited to tell you about Week 2's special surprise because this surprise is going to last all year long! Emma Stafrace is joining the CSI team as our Composite Sketch Artist! Em's sketches at her site Page Drafts have already inspired so many of our team and members, and now Em will be creating a Page Draft exclusively for CSI each second week of the month! We know you will love her sketches and that you will find them a fun addition to the Case File.
Our January Special Agent is Piradee Talvanna! I have long admired Piradee's style and talent, and just a peek at her extensive resumé shows that the rest of the scrapbooking world feels the same way. She currently designs for Crate Paper, Maya Road, Webster's Pages, and Creating Keepsakes magazine and has also designed for Pink Paislee, Fancy Pants, American Crafts, Lily Bee, and Collage Press, to name a few. We are so fortunate that Piradee took time out of her incredibly busy schedule to join us this month!
Here is my take on the case file;
The backing paper is actually from the packaging of a Blue Fern Studios frame. I cut out some more diamonds from a smaller packaging and pop-dotted them.
This chippie piece is the bottom part of the Blue Fern Studios Royal Frame (074592) that I have cut off and turned over. It looks like this in its original form.

I misted it in Tattered Angels Graphite, Black Magic and Gold before I covered it in Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Chandelier for additional shimmer.
The other papers are a mix of Danish Riddersholm Design, Swedish Pion Design and Prima.
Under the big Glitz floral pebble, is another piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard, one of the Ornate Medallions (074462) that I cut in half and misted in the same colours that the Royal Frame.
Evidence used are: swirls, music pattern, and string (well twine in this case).
When I was thinking about the journalling and my pretty English teacups, I came to think of a photo I had seen online quite a while ago. It was such a sweet one full of spring feeling and gorgeous colours. It doesn't have anything to do with tea, hot or drink except for the pretty tea cup. My thoughts started meandering away thinking about spring bulbs and primulas. Just love primulas and plant loads of them side by side. That's when I lost my journalling and I just wanted to scrap the photo.
So sorry folks, my journalling sucks this time.
A short post with few photos today. Super thanks for popping in for a visit and thank you tremendously for all the wonderful comments on my previous post!
I will be back on Saturday. Have a wonderful week!
Cheerio! xoxo Eila
