Scrap Our Stash: October Sketch

Time for this month's Scrap Our Stash Sketch challenge and this month the twist is to use mist, paint, watercolors or gelatos. Here is the sketch we all used:
 I often use mists on layouts to do splatters but other than that they tend to just sit on the shelf gathering dust, so this challenge was a chance to use them and also to step out of my comfort zone a bit. 
For the base of my layout I gave the cardstock a good misting of yellow then at the top of the page I sprayed a lot of pink and then held the page up so it would run down, I really liked that it came out very similar to the tulips in the picture. The other thing I did was use red and yellow ink to colour the wood veneer cards and then used a wet paintbrush to merge the ink to give a watercolour effect.
I am super happy with how the whole page came out and it definitely makes me want to use my mists more often. Now I just have to learn not to be scared of my Gelatos ;) 

Please join us over at Sketch with Stash Challenge this month. We would love for you to get out your stash of mists, paints, etc, create a layout inspired by our sketch and show us how you use your paints, mists, etc! You have until October 29th to link up you take on both of our October Challenges for a chance to win our monthly prize and/or possibly being selected as one of our Design team Top 3 Picks!

Have a beautiful day,
