This one's for you Stella Bech!!!.....

A couple of weeks ago at a friendly crop
young Stella
was playing with mists on some cardstock and she hated the end result 
she was about to throw out the paper when 
I shouted Are you crazy????
I want it!!!
and she handed it over thinking this woman is mad what does she want to create with this
destroyed cardstock
you see the card stock was misted with a very dark mauve actually looks black
in the bottom left hand corner and the top right hand corner
 I was so excited to start creating that I forgot to take a before photo
yes I am an idiot!!
So you just have to trust me on this one
So I went to town misitng other colours and some masking was done and paint splatters
I thoroughly enjoyed myself!!!
and this is the end result
So dear sweet Stella you can make layouts out of mistakes!!


here are some closeups!

I will be entering this layout in the March challenge over at
Scrap for Help
where Cynthia Lorens has asked us to use chipboard!

I was also going to take part in one of the challenges over at 
but dear Mandy I did not read the challenge properly thus no strawberries to go along with the hearts!! time...

materials used
cream cardstock from Stella Bech
lots of Maya Road mists
the only materials I remember are the heart die cut from Glitz Designs
the hot air balloon I fussy cut from a Webster's page page...
the film strip chipboard I have no idea where it is from!! 
i sprinkled some hearts and carbochon flowers here and there
under the photo is some corrugated cardboard and protective fabric for shoes which which were both  misted
