CSI Case File #259 - Family Fun Day


There is a new Case File over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration - it's bright, colourful and perfect for your summer holiday snaps ...

I was inspired to create a fun page with a cartoon feel to it, documenting a day out with my family back in May this year. This was our first day in Cornwall for a couple of years and we had all gathered in the park close to where we used to live to have a picnic lunch.

The photo is printed in black and white, so that I could add colour with Distress Inks to match the colour scheme for this Case File ...

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling

The rules have changed over at CSI this year - you can choose which clues you want to use, or just draw your own inspiration from the Scene. However, I love the traditional clues, so I went Old School again. 
  • Scheme: colours are all there except I left the brighter blue out.
  • Evidence: text pattern, speech bubbles and brush/hand drawn fonts.
  • Testimony: I documented a trip and I put some of my journaling in speech bubbles. 

Check out the CSI blog for all the details and lots of inspiration and why not have a go yourself - there are lots of prizes to be won and you have until the end of August to crack this Case :o)

Thanks for visiting my blog today, see you again soon!

A gorgeous photo with the pops of colour from the distress inks and I love the sneakers across the bottom. The cloud paper adds a touch of whimsy and I like the "hill with the tree in the background. x
