Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - April Showers

Happy Friday!! I hope you are having a great week!! My nieces are still here so I haven't had a chance to visit your blogs, but I will be by on Sunday night when they leave. It's time for a Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces :) Our theme this week is "April Showers" - we want you to use an umbrella, cloud, rain boots...


For my project, I wanted to use an awesome new rain stencil from The Crafter's Workshop, so I created a journal page.


The watercolor paper was spritzed with water and then sprayed with Dylusions sprays in Cut Grass, Fresh Lime, Dirty Martini, Calypso Teal, Vibrant Turquoise and London Blue. A Darkroom Door script stamp was stamped with Ranger Aquamarine Archival Ink. Stamps from Paper Wings Productions' Art Textures stamp set were stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink. A toothbrush was dipped in white acrylic paint and flicked across the page. The raindrops are a Crafter's Workshop Rain stencil, sponged with white acrylic paint and outlined with a black Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen. The grass along the bottom is a Dylusions On the Edge stamp, colored in with Dylusions Cut Grass in a Tim Holtz Waterbrush. The border along the sides and top are from a Dylusions Further Around the Block set, colored in with a TH Waterbrush filled with Funky Fushia and a white Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. The edges of the page were outlined with a charcoal pencil.


April Showers was cut from a scrap piece of watercolor paper sprayed with Dylusions sprays in Squeezed Orange, Lemon Zest and Pure Sunshine. The letters are from TH's Wanted die and were scribbled with a white gelly roll pen.


The girl and umbrella are from Dylusions Ruby Rainbow stamp set. The umbrella was colored in with TH Distress Markers in Barn Door, Fired Brick, Dusty Concord and Walnut and a waterbrush. Ruby was colored with TH Distress Markers in Barn Door, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Dusty Concord, a waterbrush and a white gelly roll pen. Her hair was colored in with a waterbrush filled with Dylusions Lemon Zest. She was outlined with charcoal and then white charcoal. The bird is from a Dylusions How Does Your Garden Grow set, colored in with a waterbrush filled with Dirty Martini. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Good Thoughts stamp set, colored in with waterbrushes filled with Postbox Red and After Midnight, and a white gelly roll pen. It was outlined with white charcoal.
