Vibrant spring

Hello there, Eila here with some vibrant spring colours for you! Spring has been long overdue in Sweden so we are really longing for budding trees and blooms. The pages that I am sharing with you today are bursting with the vibrant colours of spring - yellow, purple and fuchsia.

Here is the first layout that I have called "Blooming".

 I misted the chipboard several times in denim blue and really love how the title pops.

The Seasonal Wildflower is one of my favourite Blue Fern Studios chipboards, so versatile. Dressing it in paint or mists with a sprinkle of pearls makes it truly gorgeous.

My next page "Cute Stuff" is in bold purple.

Here I have stipled white acrylic paint and heavy modelling paste on the Royal Border - Large to get some structure before inking it in pale pink and dabs of brown.

The title was painted in white acrylic paint and then misted in several different hues of purple.

I used a mask and modelling paste on the Tropical vine before misting it in pinks and the same purples used for the title.

The flourished holder for the Fancy Birdcage was painted white and dabbed with fluid chalk in pale pink and grey.

My last project is about enjoying the little things in life, such as seeing crocuses sprouting in the flower beds.


The Picket Fence was dabbed with modelling paste for a knobbly effect and then painted in brownish Glimmer Glaze. The Organic Vine was first painted in green crackle paint and while still wet, I dusted it in greenish Cosmic Shimmer iridiscent pigment powder.
