Smile and Laugh

Hello everyone!!! So the Spring break started today and actually it was quite warm and nice. I checked the weather and by weekend it's gonna be wet and cold again, so I decided to enjoy a bit. It was a happy day!
I get to put this wonderful honor on my sidebar. Thank you Paper Craft Magazine.



Alright, I am guest designing for the challenge blog "Cards und More" and the challenge is to create a scene. How could I not create a Spring scene with a lovely flower and butterflies, the sky, greens, and that too while playing with my new Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft goodies. I used some Gelatos, PITT Big Brush Pens, PITT Artist Pen. Love how we can mix and match these products to achieve the desired effect. As you know, I tend towards Clean and Simple and here it is again....a CAS mixed media scene. I have my daughters in mind, while creating this as they would always make me laugh and smile. So this page is dedicated to my dear daughters :)
I have to buy an actual journal book for myself now as I am loving these products so much and just want to keep playing...lol



I used my favorite stamp by Hero Arts.

Playing along the following challenges too.

Hero Arts Monthly challenge: Just for Her (this is for my daughters)
Simon Says Blog: April showers/ Spring flowers
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Background (I used my old letter writing bg stamp to give some dimension to the background)
Moxie Fab World: Watercolor challenge (I used my Gelatos and Pitt Pens with water to color my flower and background)

Supplies: Stamps: Hero Arts (Old letter writing, Etched medallion, CL549,CL428 ); Gesso, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft: Gelato (Greens, 50's Diner, Blues), PITT Big Brush Pen (Black, Reds), PITT Artists Journaling Pen.
