Thoughts turn to spring
Spring seems to have arrived very early this year....already the temperature is warming up and the bulbs are bursting forth.
I was inspired to use lighter, brighter colours over the weekend and I was keen to use flowers. I created two Mother's Day cards but, canny crafter that I am, I keep them in reserve until one of the challenge blogs asks for Mother's Day cards!
Meanwhile here is a spring-inspired layout which is part of the Story of My Life. It's on the subject of my hair.
I've had the sparkly balloon stickers from K&Co for ages, and didn't know what to do with them. But they made a great backdrop here for small circular shots of my head!
I used K&Co sparkly paper and scalloped cardstock and a Gelly Roll pen for the doodling. I drew the bluebells by hand and painted them with Twinkling H2Os. For the journalling, I wrote on an acetate (transparency) and then painted the back of it with acrylic paint.
