July Guest Designer Challenge #1

Post by Debbi Tehrani » Mon Jul 06, 2020 1:34 pm

Hi, everyone! I'm excited to be the ACOT guest designer for July, and I'd like to invite you to play in my challenge CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. We have 3 challenges every month, all three open for the entire month. CSI's deadline for the July challenges is August 4; however, ACOT asked that winners be selected by the end of the month, so in order to be eligible for ACOT's $5.00 gift certificate, you must post your challenge in the ACOT gallery (please mark the check box for my challenge so it gets into the album) by July 30. You may also enter your challenge in CSI's Facebook group for a chance to win prizes from CSI's seven sponsors. All winners will be chosen randomly, and you may enter as many layouts as you like for this challenge.

To play, simply use our Case File as inspiration for your layout. You can draw your own inspiration or use as few or as many of the the clues in the second image. Please let us know how you were inspired by the Case File.

Let me know if you have any questions! I hope you'll have fun with this. Be sure to stop by the CSI blog for inspiration from our design team and guest designers.

Congrats for being chosen as the  July Guest Designer.  I have always loved your layouts.  Question for your challenges.  Are we allowed to combine with any of the other  MB challenges that allow combining?  I see where we can have multiple entries but nothing about combining.  Thanks in advance.

I just started doing the CSI challenges.  Now that I figured out how to do them.  ha.  They are fun.  Lots of things to be inspired by.
On this page I used the colors pink, white and black along with circle to represent the drops and I distressed the black cardstock.

Here is my layout. For inspiration I chose the colors. I had the perfect background paper for this! I also chose to use flowers, enamel dots and ice cream cones.

For my entry I was really inspired by the picture in the scene that was a painted background (Dance with me), I started with that by using some texture paste & stencil on a portion of my background. On top of that I used two different shades of watercolor for the painted background behind my photos.  From the evidence I pulled a scrap of paper with colored dots to use (they are peeking out on my borders lol), the paint, metal (gold) alphas, and for the "sprinkle something" I flicked some black specks of watercolor.  Fun challenge, thanks!

I used pink and robin's egg blue and wood grain.
And the story is about our tradition of taking the grandkids for ice cream on their last day of school.

The colors are so perfect for those photos!  Thank you so much for  playing in my challenge! Would you mind adding it to the challenge album in the ACOT gallery so I don't miss it when I do the random draw?

Here's mine based on CSI Case File #324. I was inspired by the ice cream theme, the color scheme, flowers, enamel dots, sprinkle of sequins, ice cream accents. 😊
