Farm Fresh {CSI Case File No. 189}

We just opened a new Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

Here's my wacky page. I've been wanting to make this page forever. My mom and I have been subscribing to a CSA (community supported agriculture) for the past two summers. I wish I had a better picture than this silly selfie, but it was all that I had to work with, and this Case File totally called for this story. 

Clues I used...Evidence: gingham, jars, string, food accents, circles, wispy flowers and leaves (sort of), enamel dots, wood, cork, cursive font, askterisk, splatters, rub-ons; Testimony: document something about food, inspiration words, season, and journal as a recipe.

Here are some details. I got a little carried away embellishing this page. If you read my last post, you saw my new cart of drawers for organizing many of my embellishments by color, so it was easy to find lots of things to go with the color scheme.

The jar was cut from a Dear Lizzy paper. I like that it said "summer" on it, and I pointed to that word with some enamel triangles. I was delighted to find that radish charm in my stash. What looks like a cork tag is actually a hexagon. It was also fun to find that old Cosmo Cricket label with the peapod. The green background paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle, and the red gingham is by October Afternoon. The wood rub-on in the background is by Studio Calico. I don't like the way it looks, but it stuck like glue on my page, so I was stuck with it. Sigh.

The bundle of flowers is a super-old Jolee's sticker. It was the perfect color, and the farm sells flowers too, so I went ahead and used it.

I think the chipboard circles are all old Scenic Route pieces. The flowery border is also ancient--Doodlebug Frills. The little red asterisk-y things are from a rub-on border, I think by Heidi Grace.

I cut the title out with my Silhouette Cameo. I got the font for free. I used two different stamps--the tiny polka dots are by Kaiser Craft, and the grid one on the green word is by Denim Tampons.

You must play this month. We've got eight awesome sponsors donating prizes. Come chick out this Case File here.
