I began with sketch #143 from Sketchabilities.
Next I chose my colour scheme from Pixels & Paper. I love the blue and white and I used the yellow/orange in the bottom corner to add interest.
I chose my title from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge: Awesome. You need to use the word awesome somewhere on the layout.
I began with Tim Holtz Mermaid Lagoon paint. This was my first time using it and I found the dabber not very good for spreading paint. It was better for colouring embellishments. I switched to a paintbrush and it worked better. However, I didn't like the brushstrokes so I switched to finger painting. That worked much better around the edges. I added splatters around the outside.
Next I used papers from DCWV: The Snapshot Stack. The blue flowers are Michael's. The title words at the top are Simple Stories: diy stickers. The tag is manila paper and I used Tim Holtz: Fossilized Amber to make it match. The leaves were a lattice on a card that I had kept. The string, paperclip, heart brads and blue frame are from the stash.
