"Single Moments Make Great Memories" Layout by Brenda

Happy Saturday everyone!!! 
Today I am sharing a layout I created inspired by this month's
I love seeing used paints, mists, etc on scrapbook pages of others, but struggle adding it to my pages.   I am always afraid I will "mess up" the layout and have to start all over again and i am a slow scrapper, so I really do not like the idea of having to start a layout over!  Anyway, I did not do too bad with the paint on this layout and somewhat pleased with the way it turned out.   

I stayed pretty true to the sketch, adding a few minor adjustments.  For the stash part of the challenge, first I added a little water to some black acrylic paint and applied a few drops to my background and patterned papers.   I then decided to add some orange, and used some watercolor paints and thought I had made the orange a little darker, and discovered after splattering it on the page, that it was not as dark as I hoped it would be, but it works!  

Here is another peak at this month's sketch:
