Hello everyone!!  It’s Brandi popping in today with my take on Case File 160 over at CSI this month!

Just a reminder, here are the details for the case:

160 flat

Here’s a look at my page:

I started by creating a background to the bottom half of the frame (or decorative border, whichever you prefer!) using a mixture of Gelatos and Lindy’s Magicals over a primed surface (gesso).  I did some second generation stamping using one of the Damask Stamps from the Damask Stamp Set, then added texture with glitter paste and a Tim Holtz Stencil 🙂

I used a transparent overlay for my pic and some paper ribbon to frame it with a circle!

I used Tim Holtz “Forest Moss” Distress ink to edge my papers for the green color, then distressed slightly with my scissors.  I tucked my journaling behind my photo, documenting our trip to Jamaica and Grand Cayman aboard Carnival Cruise Lines! I also used a Prima metal “This Way” sign for the subtitle as shown in the sketch 🙂

I finished the page with a variety of flowers and a “Journey” flair piece (travel element) from the Nautical Set 1 set in the CE Store!

Here’s a close-up of the second generation stamping behind my photo piece, and also the heart I added that was inspired from the picture scene!
