May Calendar Page

Hello!  I just finished up my May calendar layout, with a few days to spare!  I was inspired by this awesome sketch from Stick it Down:

I didn't have any current collections that had the colors I was looking for, so I ended up pulling some OLD random sheets of paper from my stash. One of the papers that I found was from a small kit by Close to My Heart.  I ended up using a lot of embellishments from that kit too.  

I started by cutting and attaching my patterned paper. Then I added the ink splatters. After adding the photos and journaling, I played with embellishments.  The Close to My Heart kit has some pretty white resist chipboard pieces.  I used the circles from the set for this layout.  I colored them to match my papers with ink and then ran my Iced Chai Gelato around the edge and smudged the color a bit to give them a bit more definition and sparkle.
