Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - challenge 1 May

What did you want to be when you grew up??? That's the question/challenge that is over at
 this month for May!
So I thought I would give the challenge a go....
I found an old photo of me painting as a child ( something I was ALWAYS doing...)
I may not be a 'painter' as such but I am pretty arty and crafty and they go hand in hand...
I created the background by tearing old book pages and sticking them down onto card, I then dry brushed Gesso over the top and then using the awesome Dylusions Ink Sprays I created this artistic master piece!
There are also hints of Scrapmatts Butterflies, Purple pumpkin buttons and doily and Rainbow Splendour felt heart...
