Spring has finally arrived.......

What a glorious couple of days we have had this weekend, I have managed to finish weeding my garden and planted a few more plants ready for the summer, the theory is to just then chill depending obviously on the weather. A few weeks ago I made an album for my sister featuring the lovely stamps from Crafty Individuals, its a memory album of our family home garden, unfortunately we had to sell the house after Mum became ill so my Son took some lovely pictures throughout the year which I used for this album.

I have used the spring time book from CI for the background papers and then put a wash of gesso over the papers to soften the colours then on some of the pages I used stencils to create the raised areas and then spritzed glimmer mists to add colour in parts before adding the stamping.



I embossed the frame sprinkling on glitter and then stamping
the crackle background stamp using versafine black







CI..209 Winter Trees, CI...287 Birds on a wire,CI....405 Listen to the trees
CI......309 Singing Merrily, CI....116 crackle background

Thanks for taking a peek
Hugs n smiles
