Arty Farty Guest Detectives Solve Their First Case File!

Hi Everyone,

Case File #178 just went live over at CSI (Color Stories Inspiration) ...

This intriguing Case File was put together by CSI mastermind Debbi Tehrani, who pulled colours, journaling prompts and ideas for design elements from The Scene. It also includes a fabulous sketch from the talented Em Stafrace from The Nifty Pixel

In order to solve the case, CSI Detectives must make a scrapbook page using the Sketch, all five colours in The Scheme, at least 3 items of Evidence and at least one piece of Testimony.

As Arty Farty is sponsoring CSI this month, the brand new Arty Farty Design Team were invited to be Guest Detectives for October. Here's how we solved the case ...

I love Trina's page, it's really captured a sense of adventure and the fun of riding on the trams. The embellishments she's chosen fit the theme perfectly and she's used inking and stamping to add interest to the background. Here's how she solved the case ...
  • Sketch: Check
  • Scheme: Check
  • Evidence: Camera, filmstrip, arrows, stamps,metal and word stickers
  • Testimony: Document a favourite photo, IW adventure, smile.
I love how Amanda divided and arranged her photos and used the photo corners to frame the main picture. The way she's put her journaling in the typewriter is so clever and looks great with that vintage stamp. Here's how she solved the case ...
  • Sketch: Check
  • Colours: Check
  • Evidence: Typewriter, filmstrip, polaroids, word stickers, stamps, metal, stripes
  • Testimony: Favourite photo, typewriter font
I've gone for a holiday picture - this is a picture of me inside a fountain in Amsterdam, which I thought was highly entertaining! I had so much fun that day and this photo brings it all back to me. 
Here's how I solved the case ...

  • Sketch: Check
  • Scheme: Check
  • Evidence: Filmstrip, metal, globe, flair badges, stamps, word sticker
  • Testimony: Favourite photo, selfie, typewriter font

We all used our Georgie Stamp Sets somewhere on our pages - the photo corners were stamped onto patterned paper and cut out, the stitching elements were used to frame and add texture to mine and Trina's pages and I used the heart from the set to create my bottlecap embellishment.

Arty Farty is sponsoring a prize over at CSI this month - a little bundle of fun, including a Georgie Stamp Set ...

It's open internationally, and there are lots of other prizes to be won. Just solve at least one of the Case Files for October and post it in the Gallery to be in with a chance of winning a prize. This one is a Major Case File, so it will stay open for the whole month. 

For inspiration, ideas and more information, head over to CSI where you can see how all the other CSI Detectives solved this case. See you there!

Thanks for popping in today. :o)

Love all three layouts! Great take on the challenge, very inspiring. I like using film strips myself. Nice how elements of the Geoorgie stamps are featured!
