Alone Time/Challenge YOUrself

Hello! I have a layout that I want to share with you. I did this layout for Challenge YOUrself challenge blog.  Here is the challenge and my layout:

Here is a closer look:

I have to admit, this one was hard for me.  I went through all my paper but I could not find paper that I liked for this layout.  So I decided to make my own background.  Looking at the challenge picture, it looked like the picture was divided with blues and orange.  It also looked like watercolors.  I treated the paper with gesso and after it dried I used water colors.  I stamped the flowers and used dylusions ink spray to paint them.  Supplies I used are Ranger Ink, Strathmore, Basic Grey, and Dear Lizzy.  As for the picture and title, Alone Time is good for the Soul, it really is!! I took a little shopping trip, just me. It was nice!  Thanks for stopping by!
