"Snap Happy" for Let's Get Sketchy

So this morning I woke up and I knew I had tons of cleaning and boring chores that should probably be done, but I just wanted to scrapbook!  I haven't produced any pages in about three weeks, and that is just way too long for me, I've decided.  

I broke out my brand new, but so very late in the game, April Counterfeit Kit, and some newly printed photos to make this page:
I used this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

And I also took the time to take some photos of my process!  Would you like to know how I made this page?  Well, step one involves a stencil and three colours of Dylusions spray:
Then rather than wash the ink on the stencil down the sink, I pressed it inside my Dylusions journal to start a new background:

Hmmm, not sure what I'll do with that, but I love it just the same!

Next, two strips of washi down the side of the page:
And then figure out what's going to how where:
Add in some arrow stamps, journaling, and gold accent bits, and call it done!

Here's a close-up of the journaling, telling a bit about how we ended up going for sushi with y parents:
And another close-up of some of the accents:

Hope you enjoyed this look into my scrapbooking process today!  I sure had a lot of fun getting inky while making this page!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
