More Than Words Challenge April 2016

Hi all

A new layout to share today...

It's for this month's More Than Words challenge, which is...
So to use the word 'escape' and be inspired by anything in the mood photo. You can find out more about the challenge here
The day before this challenge was announced I went to Lakeside with my boyfriend. It's the 'nice' part of Doncaster where there's a big lake to walk around and there's a leisure complex with a cinema etc, it's a really nice area and you really don't feel like you're in Doncaster at all. A good place to come if it's a sunny day and you fancy a walk. Anyway, there's a big fountain in the middle and the way the sun was shining, it made a rainbow in the fountain. 
Then I saw this challenge and the picture I had taken worked perfectly - the rainbow and the soft white of the fountain, like in the tree on the mood photo.
To carry on the soft white theme I painted the background of some dark paper and once it was dry coloured it with watercolour pencils, added water, left it to dry and added in some stencilling in the same colours. I also used my March/April Quirky Kit on this layout too - the Pinkfresh Studio sequin stickers work so well.

Thanks for stopping by!
