Stuck February 15th Reveal Challenge Entry

Hi Everyone,

Here is the sketch from the February 15th Reveal:

This is the photo I took inspiration from for my colors and background design:

And here is my entry:

Here is a close up:

To create this page I gesso-ed the background by scraping the gesso on with an old iTunes card. Then I added moulding paste through a stencil and let it to dry. While that dried I chose papers to go with my photos, I used the Polly Scraps Passionfruit Souffle kit. I then used a wash of spray ink and water to paint the background and dried it with my heat gun. I then used a tiny paintbrush to paint the lime green spray on some of the dots to mimic my photo inspiration. Once again I dried it with my heat gun, to speed the process up. I then added the turquoise spray ink my splattering it and then using a dropper to create the larger spots. I let this dry naturally for a while and then soaked the rest up with paper towel.
While  the last little bit was drying off I cut the papers to size, matted my photos and decided what sticker I wanted to use. I then completed the page.

See you all again soon.
