Imagine

The new case file at CSI, is quite a girly one, and it gave me the inspiration to scrap a photo of myself, taken when I was about 4 years old.
Here's my take on this case file:
My clues to solve the case were:
Scheme - all 5 colors are here.
Evidence - book pages (which I painted with gesso and distress stains), floral pattern, butterflies, leaves, wet medium (lots of mixed media products here - gesso, Lindy's Stamp Gang starbursts, Mr. Huey's mist, distress stains) and mesh.
Testimony - I wrote about me as a child, playing all by myself building an imaginative world of princesses and knights, castles and palaces, and about how I was drifted in my invented world.
I used a sketch from Scrap365:
I was also inspired by Aug moodboard at Scrap Around The World, with it's feminine theme, and the flowers on the lady's shoe:
Papers and most of the chipboards are Crate Paper, I used Creative Embellihsments chipboard, covered with gesso and embossing powders. I've added a StudiouFourteen40 flair.
Here are some close-ups on the details:
