One For the Road..

I'm leaving for the land of Aloha! in two, so excited! My hubs and I will be celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary there:)  Before heading out though, I got a page done that really makes me happy!  It's funny and I had a misting, painting, doodling, stamping good time! I based it on the color scheme over at
TCR and also got inspired to pull out my stamps from this great blog I discovered called Challenge Me Happy.

This "photo session" was impromptu and when I saw the faces that my girls had pulled (especially my youngest) I just cracked up! So I wanted to make a page that was lighthearted, cartoonish and fun. Lots of mists and painting with this cool stencil I got from plaid/folk art. Painted some gesso and molding paste randomly and sprayed some more. Most of the black on here is my doodling expect for the title and a few circle clusters. Added 2 transparencies behind the color photo.  Here's the color palette:

Thanks for stopping by and Aloha!!
