Creative Accents Challenge: Sprays and Stains

 It's time for another challenge over at Creative Accents! This is one that is definitely NOT a challenge for me as I'm a little addicted to "Sprays and Stains". It's easy! Just create a layout, card, or off the page project and submit it over here for a chance to win some goodies!

This is my layout that I created for the challenge: 
The layout was also inspired by CSI: Color Stories Inspiration, case file #13:

These are totally not typical colors for me, but I LOVE the combination and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out...I just wish I could get a better picture of it! I must have taken 15 pictures and edited a whole whack of em too, but this was the best I could get! Some colors are just harder to photograph for an amateur like me! lol
(ok, I kind of figured it out: if you click on the picture to enlarge it, it looks waaay clearer)

As for the "evidence", I used twine and thread, map print and a pinwheel.

My  journaling reads: I was trying to get a photo of all 3 of us in Hell's Gate where we were all looking at the camera. Ethan was playing around, and Caleb was looking off into space. But no matter what, life you two is a "Sheer Delight"

I'm going to try to get some better pics of this layout in the morning. I really love this layout, but I'm not loving the pictures of it at all which is really frustrating me!! lol 

I used this sketch from Boys Rule:

I must say, I'm kinda lovin their sketches :)

Well, don't forget to join us and get inky along the way! Break out those sprays and stains! Mist, mask, stamp or do whatever you can think of with those wonderful bottles full of color and join us this month at Creative Accents Challenges!

I'm also entering this into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp: Use your favourite tool: mine of course is my Vagabond *sigh* I'm a little bit of a die cutting addict!! 

Happy Easter everyone!!

This is so gorgeous, and I'm not just saying that because we're on the same DT, heehee! Love the pinwheel (great minds think alike, eh?) and the hexagons, and love the colours, too! That sketch is very cool, is it only for boys? I'll have to check out that CSI challenge later, too, sounds like fun!
