Special Investigator for CSI Case #41


I'm so elated to be a Special Investigator for CSI this month!  I love their challenges and they really get my mojo moving too.   The Scheme this month has these soft yummy colors to work with.  Here's how I went about solving Case #41.
White on White texture:  Applied light molding paste on a stencil on top of the white color cardstock.
Layers: Strips of all the colors in the palette were applied to cardstock. Gesso was applied over the layers and some spattering and stamping too.
Tassel: Made a little tassel out of embroidery thread and a button
Gold Elements: Gold bead caps were flatten with the Big Shot.
Testimony:  I chose to write six things about the photo.
I believe people come into our lives for a reason.
Up until I was 19, I lived a very overprotected and sheltered life.
I think the universe must have known my dreams and secrets and planted this very well cultured and educated person in my life. 
He introduced me to new places; exposed me to wonderful architecture, history, art and artsy people.
Later he told me he found me “very attentive” and that made him feel important. 
I was spellbound by this person who knew so much and wanted to share it with me, and in looking back I was grateful the universe put him in my path.
The challenge ends Sunday, October 21st. I'll be looking for your entry to see how you went about solving the case.
