This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Make Waves - CSI Case File no.80

Hello Everyone

I hope your week is going okay and hopefully Friday is making it's way steadily to you! ;-)

I finished my CSI Case File for the challenge here.

As you can see, it has great colours and a super sketch.

So here is my version.

I used the Pink Paislee Nantucket collection, which was the perfect colouring for this page. I applied gesso and also added 3 different spray inks, which also have a little bit of a sheen.

Evidence: Triangle photo corners, flowers and texture paste
Testimony: Documenting Summer

My journalling is at the back of the page and says this:
There is nothing better than a beach summer holiday! Where all we do is swim,sand and sea! This was our 2011 holiday at Umhloti and the kids had an absolute ball! It was bliss to just relax and enjoy the sun, water and each other! To me, there is nothing better!

Thanks for popping in!
Your visits are always appreciated!
