Yum {CSI Case File No. 48}

We have a new Case File open for Investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

I decided to document a favorite meal my husband makes. It's not a great picture, plus he's being silly and sticking out his tongue at me, but I was happy to have a picture of him making ghormeh sabzi, my all-time favorite Persian meal.

Clues I used: Evidence - clock, mosaic, silver metallic acccents, transparent element, Glossy Accents, plain brads, border punch. Testimony - Document something kitchen-related.

Here are some close-ups. I punched squares out of a variety of patterned papers, inked the edges, and added Glossy Accents to make them look like tiles. The papers with green are by SEI, the darker blue paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle, and the lighter blue with the green dots is by My Mind's Eye. The background paper is made from one of the CSI Coordinates patterned papers printed on ridged cardstock.

The two little sayings tied with Baker's Twine are also in the Coordinates. That gray chevron paper is by Echo Park. The transparent clock is by Maya Road.

I used texture paste and a Technique Tuesday mask that says "Love it" under the chevron piece at the top.

This shot shows a few of the layers. The notebook paper bit is a journaling card by Elles's Studio. The graph  paper with the three hearts is from the packaging from Elle's Studio journaling cards. I used some old vellum that had blue spots as a layer.

This next picture shows my journaling, which I typed onto one of the CSI Coordinates Spots. I was happy to use an old spiral clip which has been in my stash for nearly a decade.

The Viewmaster reel element is from an Echo Park paper. I saw Helena Virpi use Heidi Swapp photo corners for arrows, so I outlined a few blue ones and have them pointing to the ghormeh sabzi. I thought this BasicGrey brad looked sort of like mosaic tiles, plus it has the silver metal for that bit of Evidence.

You must come see what the rest of the team many cool interpretations of the mosaic Evidence. And you should definitely play--your last shot at winning a prize from our sponsors, My Mind's Eye and Flying Unicorn.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
