Crystal diva/ My challenge and tutorial

Happy february to you all!

I have a new challenge up at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

Well after a recent class with the amazing Lou Nelson I was inspired to mix up my style a bit.
Lou plays with mists and watered down gesso a lot. See her work here:

Since her class I have been watering down my paints and allowing them to drip run over my page.

For my challenge I would like you to give this drip/run technique a go.

You can use watered down paints like I do or traditional mists.

Here is my example layout
