CSI: Color, Stories and Inspiration, a new challenge

This is a new challenge that some of us at Imagine Crafts are participating in this month.  You may have already seen the CSI site, it stands for Color, stories and inspiration.

 Now that I have another new grandson I'm trying to get back into the scrapbooking swing of things, maybe you are too.  It is a fun hobby to do during the summer months.  Designing a scrapbook page based on prescribed colors and rules is a unique challenge!  Here is the link to the site showing what the rules are for the month of June.  There are clues listed as to the color, stories and inspiration being used this month.

My layout is all about Zentangle and how it makes me and my students feel like a "Super Artist" after completing a 15 minute tile.  I have matted two of my favorite Zentangle tiles to make my layout.

For my "Evidence" I have used solid white cardstock for the background.  Puffy stickers in the shape of hearts, numbers and exclamation points.  I also added some twine and included stripes.
For my "Testimony" I used inspirational words like "Super, Wow and Awesome".
The "Colors" used for June Major Case File No. 231 are:  Royal Blue, Turquoise, Bright Buttery Yellow, White and Primary Red.

Now is your chance to become a CSI detective.  Check out the site and create something new.  This challenge is taking place the entire month of June.

Hugs ~ Renee

P.S.  I'll share this page with my students next month when I teach a Zentangle 101 class at the local library.  I will post the time and date of that event here on my blog around July 1st, the cost per student is only $5.00 to cover the cost of the supplies, which the student gets to keep.  Each student will complete 3 tiles in a two hour time period.  Let me know if you're in the Myrtle Beach, SC area on July 20th and would like additional information to sign up.
