After a very very long time, playing alongwith Black with two. This month's colours matched a photograph from one of my France vacations perfectly. The background came together in a few mins and the layering went zip zap zoom and withing 30mins all done!
Now that almost never happens with me, so Im very happy :) May not be one of my best layouts, but I'm glad the story behind this photograph is finally documented. For the background, I used texture paste through a stencil, gave it a coat of black gesso and then rubbed grey paint over the raised areas.
