Happy Monday

Happy Monday Crafty Friends...

Hope everyone had a great weekend and that you were able to spend a little time crafting..

I was able to create 8 cards and 2 coordinating boxes for them. Today I will show you one of them.

I have so many old paper collections and embellishments I thought it was a good way to use them up. Take something old and make it new again.

The papers and embellies for the most part are We are Memory Keepers. I used assorted ephemera from a different company (cannot remember which one) and of course some Prima flowers.

 This first pic is the box lid -  torn paper and inked edges. All sides are covered in the same paper

 This second card seems out of place so will do another and switch it out

I will take pics of the second project later this week and post them for you to see.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week as you prepare for The Easter Bunnies arrival !

Creative Embellishments March Challenge

Hello Crafty friends,

I'm here with another project created for the March challenge over at Creative Embellishments.

The inspiration picture this month is full of color and possibility. And being green is one of my favorites it was an easy choice to do this one.

I have actually completed 3 projects for this challenge.. Cuz I loved it that much!


My projects of choice are usually canvas so no big surprise that I have done 2. Then finished off with a card.

I love getting my hands dirty with gesso, inks and sprays.

This first canvas is all about color and texture. Pieces of paper layered to begin, covered in gesso, then Shimmerz sprays with a stencil, CE Butterfly Flourish chippie behind a spray of flowers. 
(maybe too many flowers as I've almost hidden the flourish) :(

 The second Canvas I kept fairly clean.. I focused on the cluster of flowers with beaded pearls and resin accents. CE Love Chippie and some splatters of Shimmerz to bring it all together.

 Here are a couple of close ups..

And last but not least a card using paper from my stash, a beautiful CE Flourish and of course some flowers.

I hope you enjoy this post and that my creations have inspired you to create today!

Until next time,

Hugs Shannon xxoo
