I started with a piece of yellow ombre patterned paper and added a spot of robin's egg blue acrylic paint for journaling, as well as used a stiff paint brush to add splatter to the rest of the page. I also used acrylic paint to re-color some of the letter stickers in the title. Rather than write out the IM conversation on the layout, I printed it out, mostly because I had my doubts as to whether it would all fit if I hand-wrote it. I used a marker to journal the rest on the painted acrylic spot, but I learned that it sucked my marker dry. I went out and got some Sharpie pens to try out on future layouts.
