#234 July 2017

With July being vacation time, we thought we'd celebrate summer relaxing this month. With that in mind, for casefile #234 we've got a delightful Scene inspired by this camping illustration by Miriam Bos, an artist from the Netherlands who specializes in colorful and quirky pattern designs and illustrations.

Just do it

I love all the summer garden colours, tending my little balcony garden and seeing the colours changes as the season progress.  

Although not a flower arranger I do adore visiting historic houses at the time they have their flower arranging displays on; Althehampton and Florabundance in particular.


This photograph was taken at Florabundance, chosen because the colours are so beautifully in tune with the challenge and because it embodies so much of our summer getaways.

Fill a jar with summer memories;

  • nature walks
  • historic houses
  • smell roses
  • take tea
  • hold hands
  • walk barefoot

enjoy every moment


  • Flowers (both paper and velvet)
  • Leaves (resin cast leaves)
  • Transportation (notice the bike wheel stamped in  the lower right corner)
  • Animals (butterflies)
  • Jars and Something transparent (graphic 45 Artitextures mason jar sticker)
  • Dashed lines (around the image)
  • Stamps (white frame with stamp edge design)
  • Scallops (on the edge of the tuck tag)

Presentation: Make your journaling meander around your page.
Writing Format: Write in the form of a list (in the jar)
Inspiration Words: go, nature, spontaneous
