CSI Case File 253 with Mixed Up Magazine

I have the pleasure of joining CSI on behave of Katy Leitch’s Mixed Up Magazine this month,  we are cracking case file #253.

Here is my case file.

Here is a little video of how this page came together


How I solved the case: The colour palette is just perfect for the photos I chose. The pictures from our recent trip to Stoke Bruerne’s locks and dams. The grass and the water matched to a tee.


My Evidence: Stripes: I love the stripes of the wood on boats and matched my background paper for just that reason, which also matched the palette. Paint: I used paint on the background and also used it to add texture. Metal: I added metal nautical embellishments to fit the theme of the photos. Die-Cuts: I added themed die-cuts in the many layers of paper and flowers.


Testimony: I used handwriting on the page, which for me, I tend to always leave off because I am afraid



So try your hand at cracking the case at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration
