Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - May Flowers

Happy Friday!! I can't believe how fast this week went by. I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! It's chilly and rainy here today...all part of the April showers that bring...May flowers. And that's the theme for this week's Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces. We want to see you use a flower on your project. Our sponsor this week is our super-talented and super-sweet design team sister Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps With Passion :)


Last week I created one side of a journal page for the April Showers page, so I thought I'd do the other side for May Flowers :)


The base is heavyweight watercolor paper from Strathmore. It was spritzed with Dylusions inks in Calypso Teal, Vibrant Turquoise, Fresh Lime and Cut Grass. A Crafter's Workshop Cosmic Swirls stencil was placed over the top and sprayed with London Blue Dylusions Inks. A CW Bricks stencil was placed on the bottom and spritzed with Postbox Red. The bricks were outlined with Derwent charcoal and then highlighted with white charcoal. The sun is a stamp from Beeswax, stamped with yellow acrylic paint.  The letters were cut with a Tim Holtz Wanted die from scrap watercolor paper. They were outlined with charcoal, as were the edges of the page. The flowers are a Dylusions Background Love stamp, colored in with Tim Holtz Waterbrushes filled with Dylusions inks, and then outlined with Sakura Gelly Roll pens in white and black. The girl is a Dylusions Annie stencil, colored in with black acrylic ink. She was stamped with the script stamp from the Tim Holtz Mini Ornates set in white acrylic ink. She was outlined with white and gray charcoal.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - April Showers or Spring Flowers
  2. DL.Art Thankful Thursday- April Linky Party
  3. Sunday Funday #8 - April Linky Party
  4. Inspiration Emporium - Masks and Stencils
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Little Scrap Pieces to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your May Flowers project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

Love the bricks and flowers! The pop of dark blue looks awesome too.

Mulberry Mindy said...

Another amazing page Lisa! My journal is not coming along as well as yours, because I haven't taken the time to work in it. My first pages didn't turn out like I thought they should, so I put it aside. I have been thinking, while doing taxes, that the journal is for trying new techniques and ideas. They may not always turn out like I think they should, but I can still learn from them. Thanks for your inspiration, and keep up the good work.

Hey Lisa, If April showers bring May flowers, what does April drought bring? Here in So. Texas it brings dirt, rocks, and cactus! Tee Hee! We need rain here, so I truly love to see your lovely flowers in your journal. Have a great Sunday!

Kate said...

I really do wish that someone can sit down with me and teach me how to make this. It's just so beautiful and I just always love the details. Awesome work on this my friend. Love the new technique. Hope your enjoying your weekend.
