A Father's Love

A Father's Love
 
I'm still having fun with the challenges at SOS Birthday Bash.  This layout is all about using mist or spray of some kind.  I used Ranger Adirondack Color Wash Spray Ink that I still have from when I first started with mixed media (early 2000's). 


While I was growing up, our local weekly newspaper featured Business Men and Women.  I nominated Dad and they chose to publish his story for Father's Day.  It was quite an honor.  I used elements from a set of matching paper and embellishments called "A Father's Love".  I cut stars on my Cricut to use as stencils.  It was fun, fast, and a great walk down memory lane.
