Spring canvas

I guess I’m a bit different then most people in this part of the world. While all others are outdoors 24/7 as soon as the sun is starting to shine I get creative. There’s something with the Nordic light that makes me create the most during spring and summer while all others create during the dark seasons. That doesn’t mean that I stay indoors all summer, but I truely love to create when I get all the natural light in my scraphouse.

I ordered a lot with Claudine Hellmuth acryllic paint last year. Ever since I saw the Landscape Green colour I just knew I had to paint a canvas with it and use my Scrap Cake Spring Time Awakening scraps with it. So here is how it turned out.

Here you can see the green paint that goes along so well with that collection. The chipboard has been painted with Gesso, then painted with two different Glimmer Glams. I added some glitter to it before the Glam dried so it got stuck. I just love that huge white rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I’ve used a lot of dimension on this canvas. The squeezed pink flowers are one of my first scrapbooking purchases years ago. You never know when stuff comes useful… I have used two different sprays with two different sizes of pearls to make them come alive. The entire canvas has been covered with Mod Podge and parts of it sprayed with Smooch Spritz. That explains the shining…

I am so honoured to have Rachelle Sigurdson on our Maja Design Creative Team. She is so talented and everything she touches turns into gold. She made a tutorial on how to make these gorgeous flower pots. I didn’t use it in the end, but the idea is definitely 100% hers.

Pearls, pearls, pearls. Yes, my creations tend to have a lot of pearls on them. So is this one…

I just love Karola Witczak’s graphical designs. They truely invite you to play along and so I did. The white frame is another finding from a drawer with stuff that was nearly forgotten. The Websters Pages butterfly comes from another.

The last circle in the bottom left corner…

Just another angle of the flower pots.

    Wow, this looks so gorgeous and spring-y! I really love how you used the lace and arranged all the tiny roses.
    I totally see what you mean with scrapping in the sunshine. I really enjoy scrapping inside with the sunshine coming through the window too. I like to go outside, but love to enjoy the sunshine from inside also :)
