S is for Smile

Edit: this lo is on the 

This week's case file at CSI is so beautiful, with subtle colors and wonderful inspiration, and this is my take on the case, plus the current challenge at Scrap Africa, which asked to use washi tape and twine.
The photos are of my youngest, from a fun day we had at the Biblical Zoo at Jerusalem. Apart from the animals, there's a lovely playground, with beautiful and colorful scalptures, where the kids can climb and play.
I took many photos that day, and I really love these photos of my son, smiling and looking so happy.
Here's case file #89 from CSI:
My 'clues' to solve the case were:
Scheme - I used all 5 colors.
Sketch (by Emma Stafrace) - multi-photos skethces are very challenging for me, so I used only 2 photos. Apart from that, I kept true to the sketch.
Evidence - animal accents, polka dots, stripes, straws (I made mine from washi tapes), brackets, two alphabets, book pages, a flag (the dotty elephant is holding one), triangles.
Testimony - I used the alphabet to journal and there're brackets around my journaling. I documented the fun day at the zoo: "your smashing smile shows your joy on a fun day at the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem. Always smile to the world, and the world will smile to you back".
Here're some close-ups to the details:

I used texture modeling paste with a CW circle mask , and whet it dried, I inked it a little with distress ink. The journaling spot is a stamp, and so are the dotted animal on the parade. The sunshine flair button is Purple Pumpkin's.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and your comments are much appreciated.
דף לאתגר המשולב ב-CSI וכן לאתגר בבלוג של Scrap Africa, שבו צריך היה להשתמש בוואשי טייפ ובחוט.
התמונות הן של צעיר הבנים, מיום של כיף בגן החיות התנ"כי בירושלים.
השתמשתי, כמובן, בוואשי טייפ שונים, אשר מחלקם גם הכנתי את ה'קשים'. עבדתי עם משחת עיצוב עם טקסטורה על מסיכת עיגולים, וכשהתייבש - טופפתי קלות עם דיו דיסטרס. החיות המנוקדות, כמו גם קוביית הכיתוב, מחותמות.
תודה שקפצתן לבלוג שלי, ואתן מוזמנות, כתמיד, להשאיר את תגובותיכן. אני תמיד שמחה לקרוא אותן.

love the use of modelling paste which I've been experimenting with for the first time. I would love to know how you coloured it once dry as I used a paint dabber but it also coloured the areas beneath the raised pattern. I eventually replaced the stencil and did it over that. Is this the right way? I would appreciate any tips. Oh, forgot to say that I love your layout, and like the idea of a biblical zoo but Jerusalem is a bit far for me to go. :)
