Penn State York Bridge Building Contest

Penn State York Bridge Building Contest

This year, Alex participated in the Penn State York Bridge Building Contest and came in 3rd! Everyone was pleasantly surprised since it’s rare for Freshmen to place at all. Most of the winners tend to be Juniors and Seniors each year. 😀 He was so proud of his creation (which shattered during testing, which happens to nearly all the bridges).

For this page, I was inspired by the CSI, Color Stories Inspiration case file #196 that we’re sponsoring. Be sure to check out their challenges this month for your chance to win the gc to the Creative Embellishments store that’s up for grabs, along with tons of other fabulous prizes! 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

I chose glasses, cogs, gears, technology accents, and circles for my evidence. Most of the pieces were altered using acrylic paints or mists. For the testimony, I incorporated the word, “technology” into my journaling. Here are some close ups of the layered pieces:
