Morning crafters, or is it afternoon. I've had a day or two off after our fabulously crafty weekend, picked up my new car yesterday and have been enjoying tootling around catching up on errands that had to go on hold last week. It's back to the day job today, there's paper everywhere lol!!! and lots of creativity going on that I'll share with you soon. It's all about Springtime over on the Graphic 45 blog today. Annette and I are sharing two of our Once Upon a Springtime projects so I'm going to head over myself and take a look. What a delightful collection this is. I started crafting after it was released the first time round and don't think I'd made any projects with the papers up to now, so making the shadow box was all the more fun. The adorable characters were crying out to be lifted from the papers and made into a scene, something I love doing with Graphic 45 papers. Most of the characters came from the signature sheet and one or two; the frog and fairy layered frames that draw your eye to the middle. I added a hint of iridescence to the fairy wings, but you can t really see that in the photos. Here's some close ups of the detail;
I've got the papers out on the table mocking up a Once Upon a Springtime project for the workshop I'm doing with Isobel, at Scotch Lodge Farm on Friday 10th April. If you d like to come along and join us call Isobel direct on 01604 810910.
I'm off to grab a coffee and carry on cutting so thanks for calling by, enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to catching up again soon :-)
