Kraft + chaos

I don't mind admitting that I found the Kraft Plus challenge a really tough one this month!

I had an idea what I wanted my layout to look like, and of course it turned out quite different!  This is the beginning of my background, hanging on the clothesline to dry...

This is the final layout:

I took inspiration from the 'chaotic' style of the layout and the celebratory feel.  I used a painted background (with gesso, acrylics and a credit card), random themed words in a starburst pattern, and also included a car.

A long way from my usual kind of page, and a definite challenge for me.
