First time...

... playing with paint splashes!    AND
... playing along at Page Drafts

I have used mists before but never tried paint splashes using a pipette - and I can't believe how fun it is.  Why has it taken me so long?

I thinned down some acrylic paint and just started playing.  This is my very first attempt:

I didn't want to tempt fate, so I decided to leave it alone and stick with just one colour.  Then, I used the first sketch in Em's February 2014 release to create this layout:

PS: the photo was taken by my clever daughter Jasmine, using my Canon Rebel XTi - she's getting much better!

I'm also submitting my layout at Lasting Memories for the colour challenge to use pink or red with white .
