CSI case file #154

I was inspired by the alphabet and nautical elements and thought this would be perfect for the photo of the boat in San Francisco Bay that my sister and her husband took while vacationing in 2014.  

I started off with a base of thin chipboard and then layers of gesso.  I painted the gesso on then used a stencil.  I misted just a little bit of color spray over it.

I also used a fun paper from Basic Grey with stripes in it for part of my "evidence."  For my journaling I used different types of lettering--a Thicker as well as some small letter stickers.

For some pizzaz I added buttons and brads, a few gems, some twine and flowers.
