Practical Scrappers October Sketch

Hello scrappy followers!  Today I wanted to share a layout I created with the October sketch over at Practical Scrappers.

My son in law is such a great guy and wonderful with children.  I loved this photo of him and his nephew Quinn having some good quality time together.

For this layout,   I wanted the page to be spontaneous and fun so I reached for the new Kreaxions 4 In 1 Punch #312 with insert A and punched the middle bottom and top of the navy polka dot paper as well as the outside corners of the orange patterned papers.  I also used some stencils and got messy with some modeling paste and also splattered some gesso.  I love the new roller stamps so I inked it up with some Stormy Sky Distress Ink by Tim Holtz and rolled it around the photo to give the layout some movement and make the photo the focal point.  As you can see, I really didn't go for perfection in this layout.  There are lots of fun mistakes with the stencils and the roller stamp was not stamped perfectly straight but I am fine with that.  I just wanted to create some good, messy fun to this layout.  Oh and what layout isn't complete without some fun wood star embellishments and a flair button?
