Today, the 3rd challenge of the month has gone live. For this challenge, the team was asked to be inspired by spring. Easy peasy for me, since I live in a part of the world where springtime is absolutely glorious. Don't believe me? Just take a peek at some of my recent Instagram photos …
When I think of spring, I immediately think of two things: flowers and pink cherry blossoms!! Since the challenge was to draw inspiration from the season, I decided to incorporate florals and the color pink onto my layout.
I'm not a huge fan of layered flowers from manufacturers like Prima and Petaloo … I find them a little too bulky for my projects. So, instead, I went through my stash and found this pretty paper from Amy Tangerine's Stitched collection. I fussy cut some of the flowers and then layered my photo and a cluster of embellishments on top. My April Counterfeit kit, Feel The Light, didn't have any pink in it - *gasp!* - so I had to improvise. I used hot pink acrylic paint to add a hint of color to my white chipboard letter stickers and scattered some droplets across the page.
Ok, now it's your turn - how does spring inspire you?! Be sure to let me know in the comments down below & share your creations with us over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog!
