Special Agent at CSI Color Stories Inspiration second week and a new page using 'Urbanessence'.

Hi there, I am so happy to see you!!

Last night (my time) was the reveal for the new color combination etc at CSI, Color Stories Inspiration.
And today I have a page up at the 'Pandore' blog. You will find both the pages in this post.

I will start with my page for CSI as that was revealed first.

And here is Casefile #32 for you;-all the details will be there.

Don't you just love these beautiful colours...?

I want to share some close ups with you too: Those Corinne flowers by Ingvild Bolme are so stunning!

I used glass glitter for one of my pieces of evidence (something grainy). And wet medium (paint, mist, liquid pearl, gesso). I have stars in my patterned paper too, and I embossed white cardstock for my photo mat.

This is my testimony. I document a trip to the beach on our vacation.The pretty girls in the photo are my daughters and a couple of friends who came down to visit us for a week.

And now to my page using 'Urbanessence', completely different in style :-)

Todays layout is actually a page that I made a few weeks ago. 
I made it for the blog at 'Les papiers de Pandore'. 
There is so much going on over at Pandore with a very active and oh so fabulous design team that layouts sometimes have to wait a while to find a spot to be published.
If you press the link above you can see all the latest posts and the beautiful artwork.

Here are some closeups of a few little details on my page.

The title 'Solskensungar' literally means 'Sunshinekids' even if there may not be such an expression in the English language.
The photos are of my Beatrice and her younger cousin. It is not  an easy task to get him to sit still for a picture, but at least the charm factor is high...LOL!

I drew a template for the large star to minic the smaller ones in the pp. I wanted to accentuate the yellow so I added some yellow buttons and twine. I also added a vertical row of twine between different papers for a little texture. The sewn outline around the stars were also for texture.
This is an attempt to a clean page and therefore it does not have very much shabbyness in ways of bulky layers and distressing. I quite like how it came out still. It kind of works with the boy/girls page.

I hope you all have a fabulous week end!!


  1. Really love the photo of all the girls. Both LO's look amazing. I think you did well with your 'clean' page.

  2. Ohhh wow Bente what a funny page for that.
