Fun Times | Amanda Lawrence

Spring is in the air and it's time to be inspired by our September 'Spring Fling' challenge. 

For my layout I have used both the 'Spring Fling' Just Add Paper kit and the Add On bundle which includes the layering tags, ephemera and extra flair designs.

I was out walking with my daughter a few weeks ago when I realised her bike and helmet matched the colours in the board perfectly so of course I had to snap a sneaky photo.

I began by choosing a few co-ordinating papers from my stash before setting to work on the background. I used some watercolours to put some soft colour down and then using some gesso and a sponge, I lightly dabbed through the branch stencil that's in the kit. If you flip it and use it both sides you can get branches that curl in opposite directions ... pretty nifty!

There were so many pieces with the add on pack as well I really struggled deciding with what to use ... it was just all sooooo pretty! I settled for the 'fun' word from the ephemera pack as part of my title. I also used quite a few layering cards to build layers. These were a great compliment to my patterned paper selection. 

I used strips of the adorable bicycle washi above and below my main layer of patterned paper. This gave it a pretty edge and really made it stand out. To make my clusters I used a mix of pieces from the ephemera pack as well as some of the more dimensional embellishments from the kit. I was certainly spoiled for choice!

This really is one super pretty kit! If you haven't already grabbed yours and your add ons be sure to jump on over to the website before they sell out!

See you later in the month,
