An Epic Night

So last night I was awake and couldn't sleep. Honestly, recently I haven't been able to sleep well at all. I decided to try scrapping but I have absolutely no design in my head. I just sit down take some pictures out and the April SOD kit and the pictures fell on the page in such a way that a structure immediately popped into my head. After that one thing just led to another and I am pretty pleased with the result.
This page depicts the first night our friends came down to visit us in Orlando. We went out to downtown and hit the bars. While we were making plans we kept saying that this night was going to be epic. Thankfully it was. The next morning however ... not so much.
I bordered the pictures with Shimmerz paint that was included in the color add on. I wanted some more punch though so I added red pepper Adirondack paint. I then did some random doodles around the pics and border of the page. I topped it off with black circles which were created by putting paint on the edges of the plastic top of the paint bottle. I also randomly splattered the page with all three of the paints that I used.
I spritzed the flowers with black velvet smooch to make them black rather than the brown they were. I then edged them in the red paint. As an added embellishment I used the ... I absolutely have no idea what to call it. The stuff underneath the flowers. I was actually grateful to be able to use it because I will admit that when I first saw it in the kit I had no idea of what to do with it other than to make a nest! =D

Well this is probably my last one for a little as I have to go back to work. Sigh. I hate work =(
