CSI Case File #258 - Sweet Memories


The mid-month Case File is open over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration ...

I love this illustration with all those hand painted summery elements, and the colour scheme lends itself very well to nautical/beach themed pages or perhaps layouts about your 4th July or Royal Wedding memories. 

To crack this case, you can either draw your own ideas from the inspiration image, or pop over to the CSI blog to see the full Case File, with all the clues you need to follow and lots of beautiful pages made by other CSI Detectives. 

Here's how I solved the Case ...

This is a picture of Yours Truly, taken by my then Fiance on a day trip to Wells-Next-the-Sea in 2011.
I went old-fashioned (as usual) and followed the traditional clues -

Scheme: All colours are there.
Evidence: Nautical element (boat), animal (red octopus), wet medium (paint splatters), something grainy (glittered word).
Testimony: my journaling is handwritten along the torn edges and documents a day by the sea.

I also used the layout of the inspiration image as a kind of sketch to inspire my design. The torn papers represent the sea and the landscape and the text paper reminds me of the fish and chips we had for lunch - they always taste best wrapped in newspaper and eaten in the fresh air :o)

Why not have a go and solving this Case File yourself? You have until the end of the month and there are lots of fab prizes on offer. Check out the FB page to more news and inspiration.

Thanks for visiting me today, see you again soon!
