April Calendar Layout

Hello,  I'm here to share my April calendar layout, a week and a half early!  I was inspired by this sketch at Stick it Down:

I was also inspired by the 3/12 Throwback Thursday challenge at My Scraps and More.  The challenge wad to use a colored cardstock background and buttons on your layout.  I like to use colored cardstock for my backgrounds,  do this challenge was pretty easy.  

I used the DIY Boutique line from Simple Stories. I picked this up a little over a week ago at our local scrapbook store.  I just loved the bright colors.  This collection was a lot of fun to use,  the colors make me so happy!

I scribbled with a yellow Gelato where I planned to place my title.  I then sprayed it with a little water and smudged it around.  I added some spray ink splatters for a little more interest.  As you may be able to tell from this photo,  I didn't have a couple of the letters I needed,  so i made the "r" and "i" from other letters.  I finished off the area with buttons,  stickers, tape and more chipboard.

You can see in this photo that I used a bit of white paint on my banners and labels to cover the pattern and make my journaling readable.  I did a little more with the yellow gelato in this corner as well.
