"A failed game of catch"

 I had some quite time to play around on my craft desk and a Gelato experiment was what went down.
The end result was another page for our Hoomaluhia camping trip.
   Because my kids wake up early, we had a game of catch to keep them busy till everyone else woke up.  I can't help but laugh at this photo sequence.  My middle son playing catch or more like getting whacked with a ball.  It was a kid bouncy ball so he was perfectly fine, which makes it hilarious.

 Onto the Gelato experiment.
 I was thinking of how I could get an ombre effect with this Microbial stencil by TCW.  My first thought was of sprays but that can get messy and truthfully I have yet to master it.  So I picked up some Faber-Castell Gelatos and made a paste.  I totally LOVE how it turned out.
 

 The rest of this layout was all decked out is Basic Grey's Bowties line.
