Enjoying the Ride

This is the layout that inspired my Layout Sketch Challenge for this month.  I have written about our conscious effort to “Enjoy the Ride” that is parenting, rather than fight against the inevitable happenings of it all.  I created this layout with a lot of spontaneity and a go with the flow attitude, following my intuition and where it guided me.

I used Krylon Spray Gesso on the Chipboard title before sprayig with mist.  The only problem was the the spray Gesso is a lot more resistant to mist that painted Gesso would be, however I puddled in it with my fingers until I liked the mottled two-tone effect.
