The Love of Football – Creative Embellishments and CSI case 169

I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog and this month, we’re one of the sponsors for CSI – Color Stories Inspiration, so we got to try our hands at cracking some of their cases! Here’s how I solved case 169:

The Love of Football

 

From the evidence column, I went with stars using our Stars in My Universe frame, then stencils and sunburst rays, by creating my own stencil for the background. From the testimony column, I went with the family fun theme and used the word family in my journaling.

TFL! I hope you play along with this awesome csi challenge!

Altered Memory Box

Hi everyone! I’m up today on the Creative Embellishments Blog sharing an altered paper mache box. This is actually the second time I’ve altered one of these. The previous one also featured lots of CE goodies, but it was smaller than this version. For this piece, I started out by spraying it down with a Krylon spray called Make it Stone. Once that dried overnight I splattered it first with a lot of different shimmering sprays by Lindy’s Stamp Gang and acrylic paint. I altered all the CE chippies with Liquitex acrylic paint and Jacquard Lumiere paints. Here’s what I came up with:
