CSI#33 Sydney

Another case file at CSI # 33.
 I just loved the colour combinations. 
You had to choose a landmark, I chose Sydney Harbour Bridge as my landmark.
I loved this place and hope 
to see it again very soon.
Check out the details here at

  • Maritime Red 
  • Nautical Gray 
  • Salty Sand  
  • Beacon Blue 
  • Deep Blue Sea  
  • wood/woodgrain
  • liquid medium
  • clouds
  • something sand-like (e.g., glitter, sand, embossing powder, etc.)
  • something that shines (inspired by the light in a lighthouse)
  • Create shadows
  • white background
  • bricks
  • something transparent
  • triangles
  • metal
  • nautical elements 
  • Document a landmark you've visited.
  • Write three facts (inspired by the red planks)
  • Use journaling strips (inspired by the planks)
  • Go to the Lighthouse Young Writers Online blog to be inspired, and see where it leads you.
  • Inspiration Words: light, safe, guide-- use these as inspiration for your journaling, not just as a title
Sydney Harbour Bridge

I have chosen 
Liquid medium - paint and texture paste on the clouds
Clouds which have been textured pasted and glitter sprinkled on top
Triangles - banner
Metal elements -studs and charms
 and nautical elements.

Document landmark - Sydney Harbour Bridge and
the journalling done in strips.

I just found out that this layout has won
the "most wanted list" at CSI

Thanks for looking and have a great week
Cheers Adriana XX :)
