LM 390 - Make Your Own Background

This month at Lasting Memories, our theme is "all about paper."  This week, our challenge is to create your own background paper.

I got a white sheet of cardstock, covered it with white gesso and went to town with my sprays.  I used the packaging technique, then dripped additional splatters.

I have TONS of project life cards and I never use them.  I saw a layout on pinterest that used 6 cards similarly to how I did.  I really like this, and I definitely think I will be doing this again.

These photos are from my friend's birthday a couple months ago.  We went to a Mexican restaurant called Lucha Cartel in downtown Philly.  The food was delicious and after dinner, they move the tables against the walls and turn the space into a dance club.  It was SOOOO fun!
