Featured GD at The paper mixing Bowl

I am so thrilled to be GD here again at The Paper Mixing Bowl 
here is what Sarah had to say . (insert Blush)

Heather Jacob - April 2013 Featured Guest Designer

This month we have one of my all time favourite paper artists as a returning Guest Designer for The Paper Mixing Bowl - the unparalleled Heather Jacob (see her first feature as our Guest Designer here)! If you haven't visited Heather's blogs -- Art and Life and Art and Soul -- then you are seriously missing out on some of the most inspiring and unique scrapbooking and altered art creations to be found!
wow thanks so much Sarah,  what a wrap up, I am very humbled by your generosity .
big hugz  x


This layout is laden with the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard 
the Henri frame is overlaid on the photo. 

I sliced the  Parisian border in secitions and  layered it between the metal filligree and the die cut 
leaving a small piece to feature on the top of the photo . 
The chipboard is all treated in the same way --
lightly gessoed first, 
then dabbed with Rose /Versa color ink 

all three colors
whipped cream (whitewashed with gesso) ,
 flowers, butterflies, nesting material ( torn and distressed edges)
The first few weeks of Spring are so soft and gentle
with a magnificent show of pinks, apricots, gauzy blossoms and gentle light .
I celebrate the first breath of spring .
The fragrance is strong and fruity with sweet aromas drifting through the air . Sigh xoxo

thanks for dropping by and I do hope I have inspired you to go over to
join in the fun and have a play .
thanks again Sarah I absolutely loved this challenge , such soft and romantic colors .
thanks to you all for looking at my work
and leaving me some love  
big hugz to each of you x
