64 - CSI Challenge - Explore

A bright and zesty palette this week over at CSI challenge number 64.
 Inspired by the arty example, I hunted around for an ancient photo of me wearing a green scarf. The quality of the photo is not good, but it seemed to fit with the theme. I wanted the text on different angles as it is in the challenge photo and I used the the journalling prompt about verbs. The quote "In these shoes, I don't think so", is from a song by Kirsty Macoll.

The sketch is based on one by Scrap friends.

Rub ones - Bird and stitching on right side Stamps - Grunge around the edges
Use words as embellishments

I used the journalling prompt "Use a series of verbs" and tried to make a potted history of my personal journey
In these shoes? I don't think so!
