Our Journey - CSI Special Case No. CC-4

Hi there....
We're opening a very special Case File today, it's Special Case No. CC-4! CSI(Colors, Stories, Inspiration) is joining forces with Words & Paintery to bring you a special collaboration Case File That will be open for the rest of January. Here is the inspiration board for their challenge:
One of the perks of a Collaboration Case File is that you can create one layout and enter it for two different challenges. That means you have a chance to win a prize from Words & Paintery's sponsor and our sponsor, A2Z Scrapbooking.
To enter both challenges, be sure to add your layout to the CSI Gallery and to the Words & Paintery blog using their Linky tool, which can be found at the bottom of their blog post. Make sure you read the rules from both challenges to be eligible for a prize. 
Since we are celebrating CSI's third birthday this month, that is our theme tying together our Case Files. This week's frosty, festive Scene was found on Tiffany BIlls Designs blog.

So, are you ready for our special Collaboration Case File? Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. CC-4.  

Here's my layout...
The Color Scheme : Aqua Blue, True Blue, Taupe, Light Grey and Off-White.
The Evidence : 3 of something, stars, rhinestones, glitter, something transparent, melt something.
The Testimony : I chose Presentation which is adding some sparkle to my journaling spot with glitter and rhinestones)
 The paper was actually a christmas paper, but somehow couldn't find again any blue paper that match the scheme. So I decided to use the color taupe as my background. Painted my background first with gesso and added some splashes of paint and some stamps. Made some layers for my photo. Spray my background with Dylusions Ink Spray - London Blue and Golden Acrylic Fluid - Phthalo Blue. For my chipboards, I used black acrylic paint, some I used Stickles - Baby Blue, some I did with Inka Gold - Ice Blue and some I did it with Liquid Pearl - Baby Blue.
 For the journal, since I've picked the title "Our Journey", so I decided to use this quote I found in Pinterest which said, "The best things in life are the people we love, the places we've been and the memories we're made along the way..." Like always, I would like to thank you for stopping over my blog, and would appreciate for a comment or two... :)
Happy New Year everyone and have a wonderful "first" day in 2015. Hugs, Merry.
