Deer and Fawn Designs April challenge

I have found a new blog site and challenge, thanks to a friend. It's called Deer and Fawn Designs, which also has an online shop, which can be found here. (So far I haven't gone shopping, but I am going to have to - lol).
Anyway, the challenge is a mixed media challenge, to use - sprays, stencil, at least one paint colour and a household item as a stamp.
Now I do like a bit of mixed media (lol - that's an understatement). So I just had to have a go at it.
I was actually challenged to find a household item to use as a stamp, and now that I've finished my layout, I can think of a few items. I did try my potato masher, but it just didn't cut it. In the end I used a cardboard tube and a plastic tube - I had saved them for something just like this. I had this photo of my nephew Lachlan blowing bubbles, and I thought the tubes would work well for stamping with - to represent bubbles, so this is how it all came about. I am quite pleases with the end result.
I used a Kaisercraft stencil with texture paste, then sprayed over that with Heidi Swapp colour shine, and Tattered Angels glimmermist. I stamped using the tubes with some colour shine and acrylic paint, and added some splatters of paint.
I have embellished using some journaling spots, flair button and enamel dots from D-lish Scraps and star embellishment from Charms Creations.
I had fun with this challenge, so thanks Deer and Fawn Designs.
Thanks for looking at my layout and any comments you may leave.
