How are all my crafty girls? I am dropping in to share my latest creation with the
April kit from Scraps of Elegance.
'in the garden...'
I was absolutely in love with this paper by BoBunny called "Garden Journal' that looks like watercolor prints from an old book. I just wasn't sure how to use it without covering up the beautiful flower illustrations. I just decided to go ahead and use it as a background paper and I love how it turned out. I added some watered down gesso to soften the background and then did some masking for texture.
Here are some close ups...
I dug out an old set of water color paints for this one and just had loads of fun with blues and purples.
It seems like every other day I am finding another Russian blog that I love...well I found this one recently called 'Memuaris' and they have a lovey challenge going this month called
For more info on this challenge and just to be amazed by all the beautiful
work to be seen on this gorgeous blog, please go here.
I used some of the Prima butterfly flowers from the kit and a few from my stash.
I wish I could say I know this sweet girl, but she is from my vintage photo collection
that I add to whenever I go to estate sales.
I loved her pose in the garden and thought it would be perfect for this paper.
So it would seem that there have been some major delays with getting the proper products shipped for our next Scraps of Elegance kit...I think I have gone into withdrawals!! lol ! But stay tuned, the Design Team has seen a sneak peek for the kit for June and like always, it looks so yummy!
