Scrap The Girls April Moodboard

How the year is rolling on!!
Time for a new challenge at Scrap The Girls.
Yummy Mood board this month

                                       "Sea Glass"

I was inspired by those colors! They are so gorgeous together!
I thought this photo of my daughter thoroughly enjoying her bubble bath would fit beautifully with these colors

These lovely chipboard hearts are from the Dusty Attic Heart attack panel. I painted them with white gesso and when dry dabbed on Colour Blast color paste"Singing the Blues"

When they were dry I painted them with Dustty Attic Gloss Varnish Clear- I think this really makes them shine!

The dots are Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles - Swimming Pool.

The papers are from the Kaisercraft Fairy Dust Collection-Sparkly, Pixie and Fairy Dust.

The wordlet, treated the same way as the hearts is from 2Crafty

The stencil I used is from The Crafter's Workshop "Mini The Story"- isn't it just gorgous!!

I think I'll be using it a lot!!  This time I used Colour Blast Color Paste "Apple Of My Eye"

I love how these flowers nestled together so well!

The large one is from Manor house-Sparkly Flower

the 4 petal flowers are from Green Tara, with the Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles in the centre.

The blue flower was from a collection I had bought at Made With Memories(Rockingham)

I tucked in a few more blue hearts and a seam binding bow,

then dotted the sprinkles sparingly about the page

Looking forward to seeing your interpretation of the Mood Board this month!

You can take inspiration from one or more of the photos, or just the colors as I did.

Pop on over to the ScrapThe Girls Blog and check it out!

Kraftplus March challenge

the challenge- to use denim!!

I chopped up two pairs of denim shorts( thanks St Vinnies!) to make the flowers.
I embroidered the edges of the flowers with some gorgeous embroidery thread I had bought months ago waiting for the right page!- Cottage Garden Threads 2102 Gerbera
The papers and ephemera etc are from the lovely Cocoa Vanilla Studios Make a Wish Collection.
I am pretty pleased with how it all came together!
