4th Grade Adventure {CSI Case File No. 281 + Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All Challenge}

We've got a new challenge live over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, and I combined it with Paper Issues Free File Free-for-All challenge to create another page for one of my students:

Isn't that globe the best? It's a free cut file from Paper Issues called "It's a beautiful World."

Here's the Case File. CSI is teaming up with Tell Us Story sketch challenge this month, so we've got an awesome sketch to work with. The circle in the sketch is why I chose the globe. I went a little off the sketch, so I created a second layout that more closely follows the sketch, which I'll share in another blog post.

And here are the clues. From the Evidence, I used plain white background (the bottom layer), woodgrain, cameras, stamps, plane, bird, globe, labels, pie charts (sort of--it inspired my choice of those black and white circles, which I cut out of a patterned paper), filmstrips, typewriter letters, sunburst. From the Testimony, I used the inspiration word "adventure." I also used the colors, substituting the gray for black.

Here are some details. The yellow sunburst paper is an old Studio Calico paper. That black map print backing the globe cut file is really old Collage Press--remember that brand?

The plane is a sticker from an Echo Park travel collection, and I cut those clouds out of an old Love, Elsie fabric paper. I love combining old stuff with my newer stash.

The cameras are fussy cut from a Dear Lizzy Saturday paper, and I popped some brads in the center for dimension. The flair badges on my page are from A Flair for Buttons. The circles were cut from an Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper.

That chipboard "Adventure" is from Crate Paper's Poolside collection. And of course the little wood veneer bird is a Tweet from Studio Calico. I have a lifetime supply of them, LOL!
