02/21/14 - "Farrell's"

*****If you're looking for my giveaway go HERE.*****

Here it is, Friday night and what am I doing?
Yup, I am such the wild child! LOL!

Got 2 layouts done!
Sharing 1 of them now.

This one was created for the latest challenge over at "ARTastic".
Their inspiration piece was this work of art:

It inspired me to create this:
Journaling: "Our first visit to Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor. We had a brownie sundae, and
ice cream nachos, and fish tacos (not pictured). We were so full after! 12/29/13"
I liked the red and black paint splatters in the original piece and decided to mimic it w/ mist.
I  grabbed a 12x12 piece of off white cardstock and a stencil and sprayed it first w/ some red mist. Then I moved the stencil just a bit and sprayed it w/ the black mist. As you can see there is blue in my pictures which also goes w/ the color scheme of the original piece. Not planned but works perfectly!
After it dried I trimmed my photos so that when I laid them on the page they would have a staggered look to them. I was able to use one of the pictures for my title, so all that was left was adding some journaling, washi, and a few little embellies and done!
Easy peasy and so much fun!
Sometimes I forget how much fun it is to create super simple layouts that cause me zero stress!
I need to do that more often!
