The Craft Barn’s 2015 Calendar Challenge – April

The Craft Barn’s Calender Challenge theme for April is Blue and Umbrella

Full details of the challenge including rules of entry etc can be found on The Craft Barn’s new blog site thecraftbarnblog.blogspot.co.uk

Now the “Blue” I had no problem with as I have my new Tim Holtz Mermaid Lagoon set to play with IMAG1458

White gesso mixed with Mermaid lagoon applied to chipboard. Once dry used the mermaid lagoon  ink spray, spritzed with water and then with goose bumps, basically just played until happy lol.

Umbrellas, hmm struggled a bit here until I remembered my Clarity silhouette figures, they came with umbrellas, yes.

Stamped out April onto the background with Archival added a few raindrops and then just stamped and embossed the figures in white, (addicted to white embossing powder at the moment)

Sorry its had to be simple and quick this month, it is my busiest month of the year workwise I’m afraid, though still making sure I get a break now and then 🙂
