Blots and Splashes

It was National Scrapbook Day yesterday so a perfect reason to make a double scrapbook layout for this months FSC challenge, where the theme is Blots and Splashes. These pictures are from when my OH and I decorated our first home together - I say together, but as the second page shows Pete did more messing about than helping.
For both LOs I used a 12x12 watercolour sheet and used Brushos to create a background. I added some texture paste through a Tim Holtz layering stencil (Brickwall) then stamped blots and splashes (stamps from Artistic stamper) before adding paper layers, photos and embellishments. 
I made the roses and little frame in a silicon mould from cloud clay and added a touch of ink to edges once the clay was dry. This is great stuff for making embellishments as it's so lightweight. 
 The matching page is made with the same techniques, papers and embellishments.

As always my fellow FSC teamies have created some beautiful works of art so please head over and check them out. I hope you feel inspired to join our challenge - Don't forget we are a stamping challenge and stamping needs to be the focal point on your project. NO Digi stamps please. Our sponsor is Flonzcraft and the winner chosen at random will receive a voucher for $20 - we also give special mention to our top 3.

I'm sharing this here-
