Inking, Misting, & Painting...Oh My!!

If you've seen a lot of my pages, you know they are usually fairly "clean", and by clean I mean I don't really use a lot of mixed media.  I think the reason for that is because I like to layout out everything on my pages and then stick it down.  Once it's down there, I really just don't feel like moving it to mist or splatter paint.  But I spent the day Saturday at my LSS, working on some of the Tim Holtz tags...well, my version of the tags anyway!!  :)  So yesterday when I decided to sit down and do the 12.8 Sketchy Thursdays sketch, I was still in messy mode and did a triple threat of ink (the circles on the page), spray mist (some Sprinklers from October Afternoon), and a little splatter paint (acrylic paint from the Craft Store).  I also added a lot of outlining to this page, which is one of my favorite techniques!
