Reconocimientos de CSI / CSI recognitions

CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration es un sitio de desafíos de scrapbooking que comenzó a principios de 2012 y que ya se ha ubicado como una de las principales competencias entre los más fanáticos scrappers del mundo.

CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration is a scrapbooking challenge website that started early in 2012 and that has already become one of the main challenges among scrapbooking world´s biggest fans.

Cada viernes publica un nuevo desafío, un nuevo “caso” a resolver…

Each new Friday they publish a new challenge, a new “case” to solve…

Se trata de una imagen de inspiración (la escena del crimen) de la cual se obtiene una serie de evidencias y testimonios que cada “sospechoso” debe utilizar junto con una paleta de colores afines a la imagen para resolver el caso (mediante la creación de una página o layout).

It starts with an inspiration image, “the crime scene”, from which they obtain a series of “evidences” and “testimonies” that each “suspect (participant) must use along with a color palette taken from the image itself to “solve the case” by the creation of a L.O.

Todos los participantes pasan a ser “sospechosos” que los detectives (o miembros del equipo de diseño de CSI) deben investigar para determinar quienes integrarán el listado de “UNDER SURVEILLANCE” (BAJO SOSPECHA) de la semana. Este listado se compone por un trabajo principal que, por la forma en contar su historia (elemento clave de este desafío y de la verdadera escencia del scrapbooking en general) se hace meritorio de la distinción “STAR WITNESS” (TESTIGO ESTELAR) de esa semana.

All participants became “suspects” that the CSI “detectives” (CSI design team members) must investigate to determine who will enter the “UNDER SURVEILLANCE” list of each week. This list is made up by one STAR WITNESS who earns this distinction for his/her way to tell the story, which is a key element of this challenge and of the real essence of scrapbooking itself.

Al STAR WITNESS le siguen los primeros 5 trabajos que ganan la distinción de “MOST WANTED” (LOS MÁS BUSCADOS), seguido por otros 5 trabajos que se destacan y entran “ON THE WATCH LIST” (EN LA MIRA).

Apart from this STAR WITNESS there are 10 pieces of work chosen, the first 5 are awarded the MOST WANTED distinction and the second 5 become listed ON THE WATCH LIST.

Yo tuve el honor en 4 ocasiones de mis esporádicas participaciones (cómo quisiera poder participar ABSOLUTAMENTE TODAS LAS SEMANAS!) de pertenecer a estas listas privilegiadas con trabajos que incluso yo no consideraba podían tener tal chance… y sin embargo, fueron elegidos!

I´ve had the honor of being listed in such privileged lists on 4 different occasions from my sporadic participations (how I wish I can participate ABSOLUTELY EVERY WEEK!). Some of those awards were given to pieces of work I thought had no chance… and yet, were chosen!

A continuación les dejo un listadito de estos 4 afortunados que fueron distinguidos, en orden cronológico, con algunos links y comentarios recibidos:

Below I´m leaving you a list of those fortunate 4 that were distinguished, in chronological order and with some links and comments they got:

COMMENT BY CSI MEMBERS JUSTIFYING THEIR CHOICE:

1978 by Carolina Ghelfi
Las intensas rosas rojas de Carolina nos llamaron la atención y cuando vimos cómo las hizo nos impresionamos mucho por su creatividad! Nos gustaron sus dulces fotos y cómo distribuyó el texto por toda la página, y en particular nos encantó la forma en que sus fotos se abren como librito para revelar su extenso y significativo relato… y qué adorable detalle el de agregar pompones como manijitas para abrir esas ventanitas! La página de Carolina es simplemente adorable!

Carolina's bold red roses caught our eye, and when we saw how she made them, we were very impressed by her creativity! We love her sweet snapshots and how she's scattered text around the page, and we especially love how her photos flip open to reveal extensive and meaningful journaling, and how cute is it that she used green pom-poms as handles to open the flaps! Carolina's layout is simply delightful!

Comment by Shaunery on March 26, 2012 at 1:08pm
Carolina!!!!!  This is wonderful!  I love your flower and the flip photo's are ingenious.  The little poms you attached are so 70's!  Thank you so much for sharing this with us!  It's fabulous!
 
Comment by Helen Wallace on March 25, 2012 at 10:05pm
Amazing creative art.  I find it difficult to use those faded 1970's photos, but you really nailed this challenge  :)
Comment by Jacynthe Loubier on March 25, 2012 at 6:03pm
Carolina, what a great layout that is. You created such a beautiful background with the leaf masks, paint, and those bold red flowers. I love the older photos and how you made it so they can be flipped over to uncover the journaling. The little pom-pom detail is really cute. I love how you "sprinkled" the bits of journaling here and there. Love how the title numbers really stand out. Love it all, really. TFS:)
 
Comment by Ellen Porter on March 25, 2012 at 5:55pm
Love your misty background!

COMMENT BY CSI MEMBERS JUSTIFYING THEIR CHOICE:
Play, Ali's 8th Birthday by Carolina Ghelfi
La página de Carolina simplemente “grita” diversión y risas! Ella hizo un estupendo trabajo utilizando los CSI Coordinates [papeles y elementos imprimibles del caso] y creemos que los garabatos sobre la foto agregan sentido a la idea de JUEGO y DIVERSIÓN, tema principal de su trabajo. La rueda giratoria que revela el realato detallado y divertido sobre el cumpleaños de su hija es el elemento más brillante y creativo de su página! Todas deseamos que se nos haya ocurrido a nosotras!
Carolina's page just scream fun and giggles! She did a terrific job using the CSI Coordinates, and we think the doodling on the photo adds to the sense of play and fun that her layout is all about. The turning wheel that reveals the joyful and detailed story of her daughter's birthday is a brilliant and creative addition to Carolina's page! We all wish we had thought of that!

Sagitario by Carolina Ghelfi
La forma en que Carolina abordó el relato sobre su signo astrológico es tán creativo. Nos encanta el modo en que, no sólo documentó todas las características de su signo sino también cómo remarcó, resaltó y comentó a mano alzada determinados aspectos! Qué manera tán creativa de contar su historia!
Carolina's approach to journaling about her astrological sign is so creative. We love how she not only documented all the different traits of her star sign but then went through and highlighted, circled, and made little comments about certain things! Such a creative way to tell her story!

cool idea:)

 
Comment by Adrienne Ford on May 6, 2012 at 10:56pm
I love this idea- I like your purposeful carelessness of the page- sometimes that is when we let ourselves be free to be the honest us. Love all your doodles and scribbles and highlighting of important aspects of your sign.
 
Comment by Sarah Martin on May 6, 2012 at 9:03pm
Oh this is really cool. Love how you wrote little notes over the Sagittarius description- very clever

Awesome page, I was so frightened when my husband did it but he said it was a blast, so I do hope you get to it someday too!

Lovely details and techniques! Great job, Carolina!
 
Comment by Eila Sandberg 20 minutes ago
Hello there Carolina, welcome back! absolutely wonderful and creative techniques used on your page, thanks a bunch for sharing! This loveliness brought your page to the Watch List - congratulations! xxx
Quisiera que esto sirva de incentivo para aquellos que crean que entre tantos “grandes” del scrapbooking no tienen oportunidad… PARTICIPEN! de este o cualquier otro grupo o desafío… El sólo participar en estos grupos humanos tan lindos nos llena de pilas para seguir haciendo arte, por más que no estemos en ningún top 10… en estos desafíos llegamos a conocer gente de diferentes puntos del planeta y el recibir comentarios alentadores desde lugares y personas remotas hace que aprendamos a autovalorarnos más y nos invita a hacer lo mismo con otros y así se genera una cadena de amor al arte tan linda como necesaria para seguir adelante…

I wish all this helps as motivation for anyone that might think that, among such great scrapbooking artist, they won´t have a chance… DO PARTICIPATE! of this or any other challenge or group… The sole act of participating in these wonderful human groups really motivates us to continue creating art, no need to stay on any top 10 for that… through just participating in these challenges we get to meet people from all over the world and when we receive comments on our work from them we learn to believe in ourselves more and invite us to do the same with others, creating this way a sort of “love for art” chain so nice and necessary to continue on this path…

La web está llena de desafíos como este, y en casi todos los idiomas… busquen uno que les guste y participen! Estoy segura de que no se van a arrepentir… pero les advierto… puede llegar a generar adicción!! Smile

The WEB is full of challenges like this, and in most languages… just find one that you like and participate! I am sure you won´t regret it, but let me warn youu… it might create addiction! Smile

Y si les gustó lo que vieron hasta ahora de CSI, insisto… Visiten el sitio de CSI: Colors, Stories, Inspiration y anímense a participar Smile
And if you like so far what you saw of CSI, I must insist, please visit the CSI: Colors, Stories, Inspiration website and join in! Smile

Gracias CSI por las menciones!

Thank you CSI for your recognitions!
