Colorful Spring

Posted by Elena Olinevich

Good day to everyone. Elena is here with you and today I  want to share a simple Layout. It is so hard to struggle with so long winter weather, that I decided to add some warm colors to my art.




Yes, while other girls are playing with new spring collection, I wanted the summer to happen at the current moment. That is why I used Vintage Summer Basics collection for my work.



I added some paper strips and some bright color combo using my acrylic paints and mists.



Also I added some paper tearing, fussy cutting and layering.



and decorated it with some shabby embellishments



and applied some Gesso using a sponge.

I hope you are enjoying your long week end

Happy Easter to everyone.

Products used:

Maja Design Papers: Vintage Summer Basics: 1921, 1924, 1908, 1911; Chipboard: 2Crafty; Embellishments: Prima flowers and resins; Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, Tattered Angels mists.
