Just like a Pill - Kraft Plus Challenges

Attention P!nk fans - you are going to adore the new November kraftboard at Kraft Plus Challenges!
Drawing inspiration from an artist who is not afraid to speak her mind and live authentically, I created this page using lyrics from one of her well know tracks. 

My DS was very ill recently and we decided to see if he could try and swallow a tablet instead of spoons and spoons of gloopy syrup. I was delighted when he gave it a go and was successful!
To create my title, I wanted to echo the punk feel of many of P!nk's album covers. I wanted a stencilled look, so I created the title in Silhouette Studio.

Using a dauber and black ink, I went over the area, deciding at the last minute to mix up the title using chipboard alphas for the word 'just' instead.

I love the look it produced! For a bit more of a distressed feel, I used some direct misting along with some grungy Prima stamps which I recently added to my collection. The drips are perfect for the look I was going for.

A couple of bright layered elements make up the top section. (I will cover how I got the marbled effect in a post soon!) Simple Stories 'DIY Boutique' is the perfect line for this irreverent challenge ;)

Here is a look at the challenge board. There are a few rules worth noting, so it's worth popping over to the K+ blog to check out all the details.

 Happy creating!
