Spring Unlocks the Flowers

Keeping up with the Spring theme, and also hoping to see more signs of it soon (fingers crossed) I participated with my friends Julie and Erica in a Spring Art Swap, they already received it so now I can share it with all of you.

I altered a 9” X 7” Canvas using Making Memories acrylic paint and the beautiful Twig collection from Little Yellow Bicycle.

A photo of there preference will go in the green empty area; the ribbon and banner are not glued on that part.

For the title I used October Afternoon Alphas and embellished it with some Prima roses and Maya Road pins. The ribbon is from American Crafts.

To make a frame I glued brown velvet ribbon around the canvas, and at the top added three more flowers.

I really like swapping with these two talented ladies and loved what they both made for me. I got a beautiful spring project from Julie, but you’ll have to wait to see photos of that on a different post ;) Here is what I got from Erica, she decorated a trinket box in her lovely vintage style and made me these beautiful sterling and glass bead earrings, and that was not all, she also made a gorgeous ribbon bookmark that I put to use right away.
Don't forget that March is TST's Fan Appreciation month and this weeks giveaway winners are being selected from our Scrappy Community, go over there and look up the blog post where Julie is asking a daily question :)
I hope you all have a wondeful day
