Happy May!!! It’s already time or a new challenge. Another year seems to be flying by so fast. I love spring. The flowers, pretty colors, scents, warmer temps, spending more time outdoors etc. What is your favorite thing about spring?

The challenge is to be inspired by at least one of the elements from the picture below. Perhaps some flowers, trees, the colors, add a gate, a flourish, leaves etc. There are so many things to be inspired I am sure even some I missed.

I was inspired by the peacock, his feathers are a little hidden by the leaf of the flower!!!

I used for the background, the stamps “Text” and “Chevron” which I find magnificent!!! I adore them, they are very beautiful!!! And the card “Life”, that I colored in pink with a spray!

photographieHi friends. I was inspired by the circles of the peacock as well as bleu/pink colors. For the twist  I used a Peacock feathers and Masquerade masks on my project. On my background, I used Grunge Stars Stamp, Distressed Circle Stamp and Distressed Text Stamp  with black Archival ink to add contrast. I embossed Ivy Wreath with white embossing powder to introduce light. I applied gold glitter splash 13@rts on the Stars. And I colorized Distressed chicken wire border with black Archival ink.

Hope to see you all playing along with us this month!!!!

Hi everyone! What a fun inspiration photo this month. For me I created 3 tags inspired by the outdoors and birds. I have added some chippy feathers, scribble heart and a flourish to them, with some stamping in the background with the Distressed Text Stamp. I hope you all play along with us this month!

Hi my friends !! Wow I love colors from inspiration photo . I was also inspired by the flowers , peacock ,and circles on the feathers. On my background I used awesome circle bokeh stencil. I covered heart flourish corner and rose leaves with white gesso and then I added some colors. I just love fairies from Creative Embellishments . I altered my fairy with white gesso and white glitter , for the wings I used metallic paints .I also create little skirt for this lovely fairy .For the twist I add white resin  feather . I can’t wait to see what all of you create from this month’s inspirational photo!

mini book w 900

I used the inspiration to make a junk journal using tons of Creative Embellishments chippies from Door Knockers, Keys, Small Flourishes, Blinds, Clock Hands, Light bulbs, Art Words, and Oval Frames.  I used mists, ink, or left then natural all over the pages in the journal.  Check out the video below for full information on how I made this fun little book and see each page full of the amazing chippes!!
