You Make Me Smile

I am up on the Paper Issues blog today showcasing the Notable Quotable challenge for April. Here's the quote image:
I was inspired by the flowers and mason jar.  I used the mason jar cut file from the PI free files and made that my focus on the design.

For this layout, I was all about adding extra dimension to the cut file. I added watercolor to the stems to add a touch of green.  Amy Tangerine's Sunshine and Good Times new collection has fun patterns and spring colors that worked well against the dark background wood grain. The vellum layer for the mason jar softened the background and helped be the base of the photo.

Lately, I have used so much gold in my projects. It was a nice change to dig through my stash for silver. The silver pink foam Thickers were from an older Pink Paislee collection. I had silver chipboard frames that worked as a dimensional layer behind the photo.

After backing the flowers, I added enamel dots to the centers for added color and shine! The messy threads were a fun addition since I didn't use a bow or twine (or any sewing!!) on this design. I love the texture they add to the flower bouquet.

I hope you have enjoyed the weekend crop at Paper Issues, as well as our April Challenges.  The crop challenges are open through the week so you can enjoy International Scrapbook Day and play along with PI! Check out Paper Issues {Friends and Fans} for all of the details. April challenges are open through April 30th.  Spring Crop is open until May 6th at midnight pacific time.
