I'm absoloutely thrilled to have be invited as this week's Guest Designer over at City Crafter Challenge Blog , this is such a great challenge blog and I'm very honoured to have been asked to work with such talented designers. It is week #46 and Cheryl is this week's hostess and she has choosen the theme 'Spring Fling' ,this a colour challenge using pastel pink,blue,green and cream,yippee,my favourite colours and there is also a beautiful collage photo to get you even more inspired.
I bought a plain wooden house a few weeks ago from Bubbly Funk and when I saw this colour scheme I knew I wanted to use these colours on it.
I painted the whole house in cream acrylic paint,then added some of my favourite family photo's, from my scrap box I cut to size some pretty papers to fit the different compartments. Then came the fun bit adding all the embellishments.I filled a mini glass jar with pearl beads,wrapped patterned paper around cotton reels added pretty stick pins,covered the tiny wooden house and Maya Road dress form in paper.The bunting is made using Stampin'Up 'Party this Way' set, I stamped it once onto plain card then again onto some patterned paper which I cut the centre triangle out and adhered onto the stamped cardstock. I added the word 'Family' using an Echo Park alphabet.
