It's been raining and pouring - makes me wonder if my little town is having an identity crisis. This time, last year, I was already enjoying my second or third kayak ride. But not this summer! So, what does a girl in despair of summer need? Crafting themes to inspire an "indoor summer." Scrap Our Stash's May Challenge is to use Flowers.
So the irony with flowers is, I love them a lot. But they don't appear in any of my projects, unless I stamp them, or create them from scratch by abusing my balloon die...so, what's really going on?
Stamps: (Pic-nic Patterns, Say It Loud) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko; (Jenni Bowlin - No. 11 Brown Sugar) Ranger
Embellishments: (Rustic Button Cream Twine) Papertrey Ink; (Scrapbooking Floral Embellishments) Portafolia
Thankfully, Kathy tasked us to use flowers from our stash. I have plenty and am not sure I made a noticeable dent...but it looks like a cute bouquet.
Well, I would love to hear inspiration on how you use your flowers. I could use a few inspiration pointers. And who knows, maybe I'll send a random commenter on this blog post a random assortment of flowers ;)
So, come join in on our Scrap Our Stash's May challenge. You have a few more days to enter - and there is a long weekend ahead :)
