The snow hit us here in North Hampshire this week and on Friday the schools and many workplaces closed, resulting in me also having a snow day while all the children that I childmind had fun at home with their families, so I used my time well and indulged in a bit of playing of my own, working on a fab MDF journal from Samantha K.
I think I am definitely willing Spring along with this project as I was feeling the need for bright cheery colours, so I went with a floral theme.
I started by sponging a coat of gesso on the journal, then I dragged Dylusions and Pebeo Dyna paints down it on a sponge to create a bright base with a shimmer to it. I wanted a journal that is flat on this occasion, so I opted to stamp directly onto the wood. The main image is by Indigo Blu and I have used background stamps from Chocolate Baroque, Stampin' Up and Visible Image, plus a small butterfly I had from a magazine a long time ago. I used a combination of Golden High Flow Acrylics and Indigo Blu Luscious paints to pick out details in the main image and paint the flowers.
I really need to get a grip of my garden this Spring and I am thinking this may be a perfect place to jot down my ideas for it. Don't you agree?
