Happy Easter and welcome to the Easter blog hop! You should have come here from the blog of Nathalie Kalbach. Today is the day when we tumble down the rabbit’s hole and hop after the White Rabbit. The rabbit hops from blog to blog, from country to country all around the cyber scrapbooking world!
Although the countries and styles vary and designers participating had a free choice what to create for the hop, the pieces of art have all something in common. If you’re familiar with Alice in Wonderland, you might remember that the White Rabbit, which Alice followed and found the Wonderland, had a pocket watch. So in this hop the common theme is the time piece. You can find an interpretation or a way to incorporate a clock in every creation! Inspiring, right?
So please hop along and remember to leave a comment at every stage! That way you ensure as many tickets for the raffle as possible. You’ll have just a week to participate (to April 8th at noon GMT) for the giveaway put together from donations from 7 Dots Studio, BadgesFolie, Garn&Mehr, Stromsvigt and Wycinanka.
So enjoy the hop and find the inspiring Wonderland of scrapbooking!
A few weeks back I treated myself to a bouquet of these lovely tulips. Instant spring in our home, so it felt. And instant spring in my scrapbookalbum. I started out with a sheet of white cardstock and applied a good layer of gesso, adding some texture to the page. After drying, I sprayed Glimmer Mists onto the gesso, added some water and let the colors bleed. I followed the color scheme of the tulips for my page.
Next to the greens and pinks, I also brought in some gold (in small amounts) with glitter tape by American Crafts, and with some golden Smooch sparkle accent ink onto the chipboard feathers by Jenni Bowlin. In the cluster of embellishments at the right bottom corner of the picture you can find a pocket watch, die-cut from a Teresa Collins paper.
This turned out to be a layout with almost all of my favorite products, techniques, and brands at the moment. I was a bit sceptic at first, but I’m so addicted to this fabric tape. This one is from Maya Road.
Now it’s time to hop along to Adrienne Ford‘s blog. Thank you very much for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
