BGC#67 :Spring green with Spring elements. Shubhra

                                                                 Hey Folks

I am so excited to see your participation in the ongoing Spring challenge here at BGC and equally excited to witness Spring in New York ! With flowers everywhere, we crafters sure drive inspiration, after all no project is complete without flowers.

We still have a week for this challenge and you can link up your creations here , just make a quick note of the challenge guidelines as below

1.     Make any paper crafted project (Card , mixed media , altered item etc) with      Green being the prominent color .
2.     Add Spring elements to it for e.g. grass, flowers, sunny day scene, Easter related    items such as bunnies, birds or anything that shouts Spring!!!
3.      Make sure you explain in your post what spring elements you have used.
4.      Link back to our challenge .
5.      Deadline 1st April to 30th April.

As for my inspiration, I wanted to do an altered Tim Holtz clock since long and so came up with this.



I found a perfect statement to welcome spring "Be Bright, Be You"! Winters had really taken that away and it was all blue...


I kept the colors to a minimum focusing only on green, pink (of course ! ) and golden :D. Did you notice the golden bee, angel and golden maple leaf, golden pollen, gold painted lamp post and the cute telephone resting on some fur inside. !!


                       I hope you like it and waiting to see more of you joining us in this challenge.
                                                 Once again, link up your creations here.

Hugs
Shubhra

So since its easter i decided to make a easter egg carton ! :)
for which i altered a regular egg carton .

 I went a little mixed media with this. Some of the flowers are handmade.
 I have used spellbinders dies for the center , there is a bit of stamping here and there.

And thats how the insides looks !! with a few eggs and treats :)
i think i will use this later to store some tiny buttons etc.
Its always fun to have handy storage options !!

In my next post this month i will be sharing a tutorial on how i did the top of the carton .
So keep an eye on this space !!
