Just Add Ink - #242

This week at the   Just Add Ink  challenge blog, they have a fun photo inspiration for their challenge #242..

JAI #242
A & A
After looking through some beautiful photos I choose a really nice B&W on of my cousin Amy and her bf Andrew..  This is another one I hunted down on FB.. lol..
 I think there must have been a slight shadow over the layout when I took a completed layout photo as the base is more white in real life that what it looks above..

Yes, I have allsorts of fun playing with this one! lol..
First I started off the with mask and texture paste.. Then I added 2x Green mists, 1x Blue mist and a Yellow mist.. It wasn't quite how I wanted so added some Yellow paint in sploshes over the top..
Finally finished the base off with some white Gesso with a foam brush right in the middle to mat the photo and flowers.. 
Embellished with brads and blings..
Hunter actually saw the paint out and was like a Hawke.. lol.. He came and did some painting of his own while I finished off the layout.. So glad my 4yr old is happy to sit beside me and craft too! Even though he does take over the iPod music play list.. lol..
