Free spirit

This is my DT layout made for ARTastic´s May challenge. The challenge is to get inspired by a painting called the Cricketer´s by George Russell Drysdale. The layout should also have an outdoor sports theme. Here´s my take:
I really love this picture of DD running up the hill in our garden. There´s something special about this picture and it made me think of having a free spirit – so that´s what the layout is called. I decorated the patterned paper in the background with acrylic paint, ink and gesso. The kites are handmade. Here´s some close ups:
