Spring is in the Air - By Elisa Ablett

Hi Crafters,

Elisa here from the Design Team for Shop and Crop Scrapbooking with a fresh Spring inspired layout featuring the 'Felicity' range of  Pinkfresh Studio papers and matching embellishments from  Shop and Crop Scrapbooking also a gorgeous stamp from Penny Black, a Kaisercraft Mandala Stencil and Colour Blast Colour Sprays.

A reminder - don't forget that when you place an order at Shop and Crop Scrapbooking you can use the code EA5 to receive a $5 discount on any of your orders.

Here is the layout i created, showing that you can still use paper in mixed media inspired layouts and vice versa mixed media products with your paper collections on layouts.


Tip: to achieve the half mandala on your page using the Kaisercraft stencil, lay the stencil on your page, cover half of the stencil with the plastic packaging as shown in the photo and spray your first colour spray ( i used Saffron from Colour Blast), let it dry for a while BUT not completely. Then spray using your second colour ( i used Rainforest from Colour Blast) but only on the seam in the middle of Mandala stencil. This will achieve the water colour effect. Once finished wipe your packaging down ready for reuse.



Once the Sprays have dried i splattered a orange colour (Tangareen Dream from Colour Blast Shimmer Spray collection) in several places. I also used a paintbrush and unscrewed the lids from the Colour Sprays to add a little colour to my stamped images.

The stamp i used is from Penny Black Stamps and is called - Softly 40-319 and can be ordered in by Shop and Crop if you love it!! 

Here are some close ups of the beautiful matching die cuts from the Felicity range.







The birds on a wire chipboard piece is from Memory Maze Lasercuts and can be ordered in by Shop and Crop if you like it!! I coloured mine with black archival ink.

Here a few of the products that i used from the Shop and Crop products to complete the page.
