Capture the Moment

Case file no. 328 at CSI has a wonderful beach/ lake side theme:
It was just perfect for our sailing photo, taken last year at Lake Como in Italy.
I used all 5 colors and from the evidence I took: stripes, grid pattern, beach elements, camera, circular elements, anchor and fringe.
I followed Laura Whitaker's sketch for Sketches In Thyme no. 431:
I'm an old fan of Laura's sketches!
Another challenge this layout goes for, is the August challenge at Challenge YOUrself - I'm on vacation:

I was also inspired by the marine inspiration photo at Creative Embellishments:
I was inspired by the blue and green colors of the water and used scalloped pattern under my photo.
The background was made in smooching technique, using Lindy's sprays: Tibetan Poppy Teal and Aloha Avocado.
I used some CE products - camera chipboard (heat embossed with Lindy's Orange Creamsicle ep),
fishnet background stamp and the chipboard title (heat embossed with Lindy's Spring Leaf Chartreuse ep and Guten Tag Teal ep, and then colored here and there with Lindy's Tibetan Poppy Teal shimmer spray).
To make the steering wheel and the anchor I die cut eace shape several times from a watercolor paper and glued together, so I got kind of chipboards.
The steering wheel was covered with pp with life buoy pattern (the same as I coverd the half circles).
The anchor was painted with Finnabair's Rich Copper Metallique Wax. I glued Finnabair's mini art stones, and colored the anchor again with Lindy's Tibetan Poppy Teal spray. After it was dried, I wraped it with a wax cord. I really love the aged look it got!
Some Robbin's Nest transparent drops added to the water drops look.
