Hopes of Spring

Blends and 3 Girl JAM-mers

Happy Monday to all of my friends and readers.  I am happy to share some Spring Inspiration over at the 3 Girl JAM Blog today!

Today, the temps in Northern Ohio are better than they have been recently.  The snow is almost completely melted and I am anxiously awaiting the first flowers to pop up from below the earth and show us the bountiful colors of Spring.

In the meantime, my hope for Spring Colors led me to create a Spring Themed Tag.

3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon is a fabulous way to had COLOR to your projects.

The March Challenge Theme with 3 Girl JAM is "Yellow, Green and Orange"
and you can see highlights of these colors here in my tag.
is was a perfect way for me to show how much I LOVE HER!!!!

I had a lot of fun using some "mixed media" techniques on this project.

I started with a #8 Size tag that I purchased from Miriam's Crafting Supply.
I sprayed a lot of different mists until I got my desired background

I used the grass die to cut a small patch to place on the bottom of the front of my tag.  I used the October Afternoon collection-Woodland Park.  This was a sweet gift to me from our 3GJ Leader and my Sweet friend, Julie!

I also decorated the back of my tag and used several dies and coordinating papers from the same collection.

I then used my Fireworks embossing folder (available at Pinque Peacock) to give an appearance of a sunburst in the upper left corner.

 I added more color by using my Pebbles chalks as shown here

I had a few colors of pre-cut butterflies, but wanted a pop of pink and red.  I sprayed the small butterfly using my Spritzer by Colorbox and some Pink Perfect Pearls.

I love my Unity Stamps and used this darling Flower Bouquet with some white embossing powder for contrast.

For the sentiment, I used watercolor paper and my TH Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from a Gift Set of stamps that I received with a purchase a while ago at Unity Stamp Co.

I used Goblin Green to tie a nice "tail" at the top of my tag and it was then COMPLETE!
