Has Spring arrived yet at your part of the world? Well I'm not too sure it has here weather wise but my garden seems determined to bloom anyway and I've created a scrapbook page to document this. I used the second March sketch from Let's Get Sketchy as my starting point.
Here's my page:
I started by choosing the background papers to tie in with the blossom photo. The three photos and the journalling card were matted onto pale pink cardstock before adhering to the background papers.
A quick trawl through my stash and I discovered the pink doily which was a gift from scrappy friend Lizzy Hill and some ancient Stampin Up flower stickers that have been lurking in my sticker box for ever. And I also remembered I had all these wonderful garden themed word strips that I thought I'd never be able to use - so now I have!
A simple bit of journalling, some punched and die cut hearts and those 'required' trios of enamel dots - definitely a trend for me at the moment - plus a title and I was done. Loving the black and pink together!
Papers: Photoplay, Vintage Girl
Alphas: AC thickers, Hardcover; Simple Stories, So Rad
Die: Lawn Fawn, hearts
Punch: Martha Stewart, heart
Stickers: Simple Stories, Bloom & Grow; SU - in my stash for ages & can't rememebr the collection
Embellishments: pink doily - gift from a friend; enamel dots from my stash
Huge thanks for dropping by my blog today, I really appreciate you taking the time.
And keep crafting!
