Spring Has Sprung - Well Almost

Good morning and welcome to April, where is this year going!
There's a new challenge over at Country View Crafts, and Monika has chosen Spring.
I was recently lucky enough to attend a PaperArtsy training day, and this is a mash up of a couple of projects that we made there. I had a fabulous time, and learned loads, not least that Leandra can make a tiny sized blob of paint go on for miles! 
The box frame has been painted in Bubble Gum and Coral Fresco paints and then stamped with the fabulous Emma Godfrey stamps.

The box also has 2 sheets of glass, one on the front, and one in the middle.
The front one was stamped with the wonderful Frosting Glaze which I have never seen before, but I LOVE it, and words from the same stamp plate.
I mixed some Frosting Glaze with a little Bougainvillea fresco and dabbed through a Lin Brown stencil on the second glass panel.

The technique for the back panel was taught to us by Kim Dellow using tiny amounts of Fresco's and a paint splodger and it was one of my favourites of the day.
The stamps used are by Emma Godfrey and a hot picks set.
I had a brilliant time, learned loads, and got to meet lots of lovely people.

I'm also entering this into the That's Crafty challenge All Things Bright and Beautiful, and the 
Craft Stamper MITI challenge Spring Flowers.


I hope you join in with our challenge this month, and thanks very much for looking x
