Kaisercraft is having a DESIGN TEAM call, so I decide to join in all the fun going on! I wanted to do some fun whimsical spring projects because the last couple of weeks I have been working on a lot of fall and Christmas projects and articles ALREADY and I really needed some SPRING!!!
With this layout , 'CHALKY' I had an awesome time cutting out designs from the paper and using foam adhesives to add dimension. I gently brushed a bit of acrylic paint on my cardboard letters to give them a 'chalky' appearance. Fun Stuff!
And an 'Angel' layout would not be complete without a pair of wings and a matching halo. The halo is a little rough…but I really don't mind at all. Jessica, my daughter who is in the picture, cut the halo out for me and I thought it fit just perfectly!
I love to dress up in frilly things in the Spring so my wrist corsage fits in just perfectly. I cut a circle out of some double sided adhesive. After gathering sheer ribbon on it I punched a hole in the center and pushed a fabric covered button through. I then threaded some rick rack through the button and wrapped it around my wrist. SO EASY & FAST to make! I could also use this to decorate a wreath, card or scrapbook page! Awesome!!!
It is time to bring out the flowers! That means I can and will decorate everything with flowers now including this wooden box that was painted and distressed, then decorated. Now this trinket box is already to give away as a gift on Mother's Day!
Hmmmm……. Birdies, Card making, and springtime just seem to go together.
After cutting out an image from one of Kaisercrafts beautiful scrapbooking papers, I had fun distressing, and then sealing the card with an acrylic sealer.
If you know me, you know that I love to alter things! I am always looking at things and imaging what it would look like after a 'make over' . The other day while brushing my teeth, I was imagining how I could alter my tooth brush….you never know, It could look awesome!
Well, I had fun altering up a note book for the season!
Spring time equals birds houses too!
As you can see where I placed this birdhouse to photograph, on top of an old mason jar lid, it really is not that big. I love making birdie houses of all sizes!
A fun postcard with a ice cream theme….oh yeah!!!! It looks like I used flocking, but I actually used the 'dust' that was left after I sanded the edges of cardstock. It is a wonderful form of recycling and it looks really neat!
Oh, I love Spring!!!! Now, Lets hope it stays for awhile!
Have fun creating!
