Show us your stuff.

Here is the mood board at Show us your stuff

Isn't it gorgeous? So full of spring inspiration.

The top left hand picture, plus the kitten in the basket got me started off.

I had the inner cello moulding from a box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates.(YUM)
I painted the 8 flat diamond shapes with gesso

Then I printed it on my background paper
I repeated the process with lime coloured paint
Next, I added blossoms in pink, tiny Prima flowers in bone, a penny farthing bicycle from MME chalkboard range, a Scrapmatts basket painted pink and containing tiny flowers, 2 white butterflies gently inked in pink and a wide floral ribbon.
My photo is from a holiday I had earlier this year.

Here are some close ups of the blossoms in the basket

and the larger pink blossoms and butterfly.

And finally the layout
Over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge we are asking people to Challenge us by using a technique on their layout. Maybe this will inspire someone too. (Challenge #1)
