This is my first Design Team piece of work and I am both humbled and honoured to be on board!
As soon as the topic of Spring was suggested, my thoughts turned to the garden and new growth!
Fresh greens and yellows were an obvious choice!
I began with a deep canvas 8x8, and covered the sides and the front with some linen look paper from a Finnabair pad. I used Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
Next, I mixed some Grungepaste with Paperartsy fresco paint Chartreuse, and applied it with a palette knife through a Lin Brown stencil. I stencilled leaves and words onto the canvas.
Then I die cut some lace using Tim Holtz's new die.....loving it, and distressed the edges with some distress inks. I stamped a sentiment from Lin Browns new stamps onto tissue and glued that down. I added some dimension to the leaves by applying some Treasure Gold with a brush.
Next, using Tim Holtz's new Doily die, and his Tattered floral die, I created some flowers using tissue, corrugated card and printed papers.
Here it is, all assembled, with a little treasure gold applied to the edges too, to finish it off!
So, come on Spring, give us your splendour!
You can see all of the Spring creations over on the CVC blog!
