Hi friends…I am excited to be joining you on the blog today! With Spring in the air, I feel the need more often than usual to make paper flowers. Call me quirky, I'll wear the hat. Which will have paper flowers to adorn it if the pile of color in my embellishment basket is anything to go by 🙂
Talking about flowers, did you read the pretty posies article written by Lynn Ghahary on page 60 of the Spring 2014 issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today? I did and was inspired by Lynn's example no. 2, which I had fun recreating in bright, fun papers for this spring themed page.
For me this page captures the loveliness of Spring time. Flowers, color & happy memories of my family enjoying warmer weather, sitting in fields of fragile spring flowers.
Supply list: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper, Decorative Tags, Vellum: Fancy Pants Designs; Sentiment stickers: Echo Park, Studio Calico; Die cuts, Alpha stickers, Wood Veneer: Studio Calico, Ink & Mini Attacher: Ranger; Adhesive: Tombow USA, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Other: Typewriter, Date Stamp.
The beauty of punchy flowers like these, is one can confidently use bold patterned papers. The 1,5" punched circles diminish the bold patterns, allowing them to work together without being overpowering. Black accents finish off the design, creating a visual pathway around the page.
This is how I made them:
I hope you have found this inspiring. Remember to take a look at Lynn's Pretty Posies article for more fresh flower ideas.
Have a super, spring filled day!
