Earth Day with Little
Secondly I wanted to work with the whole lower left corner with the flowers, and spring work. I wanted continue the flowing movement so I added Prima's crystals, and Basic Grey rub-ons. I added the flowers from Prima along with the little element "care" to add to the theme of the layout.
Of course Spring cries of new green leaves on the trees.
- I painted the chipboard (Blue Fern Studios) with Gesso.
- Then I painted the branches and leaves with Distress Inks from Tim Holtz. I just squeezed some out on my mat and used a fine tip brush and painted it on.
- After it dried I added embossing ink with a sponge in small areas and added Tim's Distress Embossing Powder to highlight the leaves.
The last touch comes from 7Gypsies with the bird. One thing I kept in mind while added all these elements was to work within the design especially the circle with "Timeless Beauty." I was really pleased with the end results.
As you can tell I'm dreaming of Spring!
Have A Crafty Day!
