The rules? Use all five colors, two clues from the evidence, and one clue from the testimony. Again, this helps you spread your wings creatively and with journaling. Hurry, go see what they're all about! You won't be sorry :)
Here is my piece -
A few words on the style of my lay out. This is not the traditional style of what I normally would do. I was reaching for something a bit more masculine, I tend to be more frilly, shabbyesque. That said, I couldn't resist manipulating and rolling the page in two spots and distressing like I love to do. I am loving playing with texture paste and stencils, I wish I would have let it be more "free" around the edges instead of so straight-lined. This is more stark than I do, and that's ok, the purpose is to come out of my comfort zone when I create, so voila :)
I used distress ink in orange marmalade and broken china on texture paste, then spritzed it with Lindy's twinkling tinsel. The paper was two lines, Three Birds was the orange red, and the felt pieces, heart and orange button from a giant kit purchased about five years ago! The stripe was Recollections Hollywood and Vine, had that at least as long as well. The journal piece, hipster, and Be Different came from the CSI case file, and the title is Thickers.
Hope you liked it, remember to pay them a visit and thanks for coming by.
