Jump Together!

Here is a page that I created a while ago for the 1,2,3 Challege Blog design team. Due to unforseen events the challenge was late going live and my page was accidently missed from the DT gallery. So I thought that I would share it here today.
Here is the challenge:
I really love this photo that I took at the pool on our summer holiday. All the kids lined up to jump into the pool together and on the count of 3 they all jumped in - except Adam who just had to be different and jump in backwards! There's always one isn't there!)
I mixed a little purple spray ink into my texture paste before spreading it thinly with a palate knife over a stencil to get the dotty background effect. When it was dry I flicked a little dark purple ink over the page to get the splatter effect.

 I printed out my photo large and layered paper strips and die cuts underneath it to make an eye catching mat. I handwrote my journaling and added some subtitle details with tiny alphas. I incorporated the challenge word 'spirit' in the 'high spirits' caption underneath the photo.

Hope I have inspired you a little with my page. Do visit the 1,2,3,Challenge blog and check out the prizes up for grabs. You have till the middle of March to complete this challenge because it was so late going live. Hae a great week!
