April is the promise of spring — in the northern climates the snow is abating and crocuses and other early bloomers are peeking out from the snow. In the lower Latitudes, the days are warmer and mother nature has painted everything in bright spring foliage. For the other side of the world, summer is winding down and fall is in the air. No matter where you live, April is a month of change. This week our team is celebrating spring.
Mary is still experiencing a bit of snow and is showing us the brave efforts her plants are making in turning a bleak landscape into the colors of spring. For her delightful page, Mary used It’s Fall Y’all Grungy Cardstock by Kay Elfin, Texture Brushes by Coppercurls Designs, and Dash of Snow and Paper Snow Kit by Julie Mead. Click on the image to see how she blended and brushed to make her creation a one-of-a-kind design.
Katie is also thinking of spring and flowers in her page, Spring Blooms, which revolves around a spring visit featuring lilacs and family. I love the beautiful way she combines five photos and tucks different elements in front and behind her photos adding additional depth and interest. Katie used Grunge Swirl Brushes by Coppercurls Designs and Strawberries and Cream Elements and Strawberries and Cream Papers by Ruth Davis.
Mary adroitly used Baker’s Dozen Multiphoto 2 by Kay Elfin, then blended papers from Kay Elfin’s Yellow Roses Paper Pack with Coppercurls Designs’ Paper Blenders 2, and iced it with her cleverly designed title.
Carissa features lovely flowers and uses a tree to as the letter S to spell out Spring in her creative page. Her journaling is awesome and I highly recommend your visiting the gallery to read her tribute to Spring. Carissa combined A Gentle Earth Elements and Papers by Kay Elfin and Hillside Morning by Guild Encore Designs.
And for Lynn, spring means the beginning of baseball season. Opening Day exudes spring and the excitement and enthusiasm as everyone enjoys the beautiful spring weather in the park. I really like the panoramic shot and fun elements. Billy’s Baseball by Kay Elfin was the perfect choice for Lynn’s baseball photos.
Best Day Ever by Kay Elfin just bubbles over with color and AnikA used is brilliantly for her pages entitled Happiness and Spring is in the Air. Both fun pages express the happiness and joy that are spring.
As you can see from our lovely layouts, spring is a time of joy, renewal, and the return to color. Thanks for dropping by and don’t forget to go outside and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you!
