CSI #32 Memories

Woooo Hoooo. I made it on the "Watch List" over at CSI.
Thanks to Debbie & her amazing team.

I haven't done any challenges for over a month, just DT work  & I'm definitely  having withdrawals, so when I saw the current challenge #32 over at CSI  I just had to join in. Loved these colours &
 I had the perfect photo.

 I live on the sunny Central Coast of NSW here in Australia & I am surrounded by  several beaches. There is nothing as relaxing as spending some time relaxing by the ocean, I only wish I wasn't so time poor so I could do it more often.

For my "Testimony" I have journalled on this little Kraft tag about how time at the beach transforms & calms you. I have tucked this tag in on the right side of my layout.

For my "Evidence" I have used four things....
1. Used wet mediums ie Gesso, texture paste & mists.
2. Textured Paper. I have created lots of textures with mediums on my white cardstock.
3. Soften Edges. I have distressed all of my edges to soften them.
4. I have used both burlap & gauze.

I have tied  my bow with a great little mesh ribbon from Green Tara, as well  I have used one of their White Flower Sprays which I have twisted & curled.

I have also used some real shells.
Thanks for calling by. Until next time.
