Jo's Scrap Shack FCC275 Sparkle and Sprinkle 3/29/19

Welcome Back Friends,

I have recently been chosen to design for Jo's Scrap Shack! This my first project and post for Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge Blog using Sparkle and Sprinkles  Bonnet Bouquet.

With spring right around the corner I was inspired to create a up cycled project, using a shadow box frame minus the glass, I had in my stash!

I began by painting the frame with good old white acrylic paint.
After the frame dried, I added inked edges and a little color using walnut stain ink. While waiting for the ink to dry, I created a background on water color paper using color burst inks, by sprinkling the colors on and then spraying the piece with water, picking up water and respraying till I liked my back ground. While my back ground was drying, I fussy cut the bonnet bouquet out, and the single flower, I then began putting my project together, I gave my project interest by using foam tape on the back on bonnet to raise it up off the background. I matted that all on a piece of 110 # card stock and popped it in the frame. Added ribbon and the single flower, to front of the frame , for a one kind, spring piece !

Thank You for visiting again, comments are always appreciated, and I thank you for your continued interest and support.

Until next time....

Taylormade4u March 25 Optional post Parisian Tickets

Welcome Back Friends,

I  have never been to Paris, I would love to visit there sometime! I have of course enjoyed many photo's, of Paris over the years, I had those images flashing through my mind, as I worked on my project! I pictured myself strolling down cobble stone walkways taking in the striped awnings and wanting to stop at the bakery!  Taylormade4u Parisian Ticket images were perfect for my project!

 Find them here:

The inspiration for my color combo, I borrowed from  the beautiful tickets, I hope you enjoy my project!

Vintage Garden Passport Kit March 2019

Hello Friends,

I am getting ready to start planning what needs done in my flower garden this spring, as well as what I am planting this year in my eating garden.

I live in a home built in 1918, my hubby worked landscaping in college and he used his knowledge and love for flowers and designed very beautiful flower beds, with as many bushes, and perennials as possible, to fit the style of my home.  I really enjoyed working with the Vintage Garden Passport Kit, from Taylormade4u, as it reminds me of my beautiful yard. Check out the images here:

 Oh and then there is a great set of bugs that would be perfect to use with this kit, it can be found here:

I decided to create a 3D garden in cigar box that looks like a book. I hope you enjoy my work

Taylormade4u images can be downloaded and printed out like a digi stamps. or you can order the kit printed for you. There are some kits that have physical stamps offered also.

Thank You for your interest, until next time...
