CSI Case File #255 - Big Fungi Foray

Hello Bloggy Friends,

Yesterday was the 1st of June (however did THAT happen?!) so it's time to reveal a new Case File over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. It's a very pretty and fun one this month, celebrating Donut Day on June 1st :o)


If you head over to the CSI blog, you'll find lots of inspiration from the Design Teams as well as plenty of clues to help you solve this Case File yourself. You have until the end of the month and there are loads of prizes to be won, so why not have a go?! 

When I first saw this inspiration image, I thought I'd scrap a pic of one of the little girls in my family, but things ended up taking a completely different turn when I came across this photo of myself during a Fungi Foray in Thetford Forest ...


I swapped the purple in the colour Scheme for navy, and threw in some green. From the list of Evidence, I used scallops, ribbon, stripes and solid white background - well, I started with white cardstock, then layered pp, ribbon and a scalloped border over it and tucked some die-cuts under the edge of the ribbon. From the Testimony clues, I chose to write my journalling on a tag and documented a story about foraging for food - my favourite kind of day!! 

So, an unexpected result, but I was very happy with it in the end :o)

Thanks for popping in to see me today, see you again soon!

Love Annie xxx

A great sketch Annie and I love the line of leaves on the left. Mushrooming was one of my favourite expeditions as a child - nothing quite like those dinner plate sized goodies, cooked up in a béchamel sauce with bacon on the side. The stitching adds definition and texture. Love it.

What a great photo and topic for a page! Loving those leaves up the side and the unique mix of patterns!
