No new projects to show you today - I haven't been well enough to spend any time in my craftspace yesterday and today. Very frustrating as I have a 101 things I want to be doing but to cheer me up and bring a little Spring into your lives here is one of the first scrapbook pages I made featuring flowers and plants from my garden.
I particularly associate the colours blue and yellow with Spring so I chose to highlight these colours in this page but what really stands out now is the fresh, almost acid green, of the foliage at that time of the year. I think I have mentioned before that my favourite flower is the poppy but the aquilegia in the central photograph comes a very close second. It's an early flowering alpine variety and I wait with impatient and eager anticipation to see the first bloom every year.
The flowers and flourish were plain white die cuts which I coated with crushed velvet with pretty blue brads added to the flowers. The title letters were printed using a standard font on my pc, glued to card before cutting out and then stuck down with dimensional foam squares. It's really a very simple page showing of the photographs from my garden.
Looking at it now I can see that I could have done a better job of distressing the edges - it does look more dobbed than distressed!!! I made this page in May last year so I can see that I have really learned a lot in a relatively short period - 9 months ago I was a complete newcomer to the crafting world.
That's my offering for today - now I'm off to take some more painkillers and hopefully I will be back fighting fit tomorrow.
Bye for now
