Let's Go Fly A Kite

Greetings everyone, I am so happy Spring is finally here.  Gosh I have not flown a kite in years but I can always remember having trouble getting the kite up in the air and staying there.

Recently I read an article about cleaning out the nests in your birdhouses, so I got up on a ladder to clean the three wooden birdhouses in the hopes birds will use them this year.  I opened the door on the first one and the nesting material is all the way up to the top with a little opening.  You really can not see into the nest, I start to reach up to grab the material and out jumps a Douglas Squirrel.  I almost fell off the ladder I was so surprised, I guess they are using the nest for their babies.  I just shut the door and moved on to the other two boxes.  The article never said other animals use birds nests.

Materials:
Art Glitter - Crystal 85 (clouds)
Impression Obsession - Kite & Girl With Easter Basket
Lawn Fawn - Stitched Hillside Borders
Memory Box - Stitched Clouds, Tiny Bow & Tiny Stockings
Mounting Tape (clouds)
Poppy Stamps - Patient Pup & Curious Cat
Ranger - Glossy Accents (shoes and kite)

Splish Splash


Greetings and thank you all that stop by my blog.  Our weather here in the Pacific Northwest is still soggy and we just can't seem to get rid of that atmospheric river weather front.  So I thought today's design was just perfect for our weather.

I coated all the rain slickers with the Glossy Accents for shine.  I added a cape, pockets and bow to the rain slickers.  Each umbrella is coated with Glossy Accents and then Art Glitter.  Raindrops are created using the Viva Glass Effect Gel.  The white clouds are also coated and dusted with Art Glitter and mounting tape for dimension.

Materials:
Art Glitter - Crystal 85  (for umbrellas)
Impression Obsession - Boy with Easter Basket, Girl with Easter Basket, Boy with Flowers & Flying Witch (cape)
Memory Box - Stitched Clouds, Tiny Stockings & Tiny Box
Mounting Tape (clouds)
Poppy Stamps - Stitched Umbrellas
Ranger - Glossy Accents (rain slickers)
Viva - Glass Effect Gel Crystal Clear (raindrops)

Spring Showers

Hi everyone, thank you for your wonderful comments on my previous post.

I used the Bushel Basket for the larger basket on the back of the bike and the basket part only from the Brand New Bicycle to the front of the bike.  I added some glitter to the umbrella and Nuvo Crystal Drops for the center of the flowers.  Pretty fast and easy design.

Materials:
Memory Box - Brand New Bicycle & Vintage Bicycle
Poppy Stamps - Leafy Sprig, Small Hydrangea, Bushel Basket & Stitched Umbrellas
