Jumping Outside The Box!

Hello there everybody.  Back again with a layout challenge for Once Upon A Sketch! This month's prompt?  Ha, Totally addicted to...I can answer that with so many things but I stuck to one.  I also didn't just think outside the box with this puppy, I jumped way out of it.  This layout is not my usual thing.  No tons of layers and embellies.  I went very minimalist with it.  Ya know what, that's ok. Sometimes it's alright to try  to shake things up a bit and do what isn't your norm or makes you feel out of your element :)  Here's the sketch to go by, and remember, you must have journaling somewhere on your page -

Nadia always does a great sketch.  I know I say it all the time, but if you haven't, give their title a click and check them out!  Here's my take on it -

I used just plain white cardstock and used a stencil and my homemade texture paste for some circles.  Then I sprayed my Lindy's mists and used some of my Silks acrylics for random dots.  Also, some Distress stain for the bigger dots.  I had this ribbon for a while and I just kept going with the theme.  I like it.  I backed it on lime colored cardstock and of course I distressed the edges.  That I can't seem to avoid.  As you can see my addiction is SKITTLES!!!  I love those little suckers!  A movie just doesn't feel right if I don't have my little skitts :)  Even my title is different for me since I hand wrote it.

My journaling says "Skittles, I love them!  When we go to the movies I bring my baggie of skitts.  Movie night at home?   I got my skitts.  Yeah, I'm addicted!"

It's true, I am, come taste the rainbow :)
