Baptism Layout- Sketches in Thyme

I finished a layout earlier this week using the Sketch #88 at Sketches in Thyme. I flipped the sketch horizontally, used two horizontal shots in the place of some of the vertical spots and reduced the number of vertical photos spots by one.

To add some texture and interest to the plain background cardstock, I sprayed the bottom section with some white mist.  (Sorry about the glare on this photo, I am still trying to figure out the place with the best lighting to photograph my layouts.)

I had some fun altering some grungeboard elements for this page.  I started by coloring them white with by white Distress Stain.  Then I sprayed them with turquoise Perfect Pearls Mist to give them some shimmer.  Finally I rubbed a Versamark inkpad over the raised areas and sprinkled on some maroon embossing powder.  I sprayed my flowers with the Perfect Pearls mist as well so there is quite a bit of shimmer on this page!
