The Scrapbook Store - April Sketch

It's been ages since I did one of the sketches at The Scrapbook Store but I thought
since I was inspired to create this background by one of their designers, the extremely talented Kim Price, then it was appropriate I also used this page to scrap The Scrapbook Stores' April sketch.
Here's my layout.

I used The Crafters Workshop 12x12 confetti stencil by Rhonda Palazzari to first add some texture with modelling paste.  Once I'd finished spraying with dylusions inks I then placed the stencil back over the modelling paste and used a paint dauber to add the bright pop of red.  
I like that it's not perfect coverage and you can see some of the white paste still on the edges. 

If you haven't seen Kim's work pop over here to check out some of the awesome layouts 
she creates.  Kim creates some super backgrounds on her layouts using dylusions inks - my favourite!
  so when she did a tutorial over here using these fabulous sprays I had to give it a whirl.
So cool watching the ink react with the water and blend with the other colours.

And here's a close up of my Journalling.
I scrapped this gorgeous picture of my eldest son on Geelong's waterfront 
staring off into space daydreaming.
So I used a line from  Adele's song 'Daydreamer'
