Spring Blossoms – March DT Project for Tsunami Rose Designs


Spring is in the air……….

For my March DT project I wanted to do something that was bright, colorful and shouted “spring!” I used some of the floral big elements, the new bingo cards, the foral paper packs as well as some of the floral library cards for this journal. While I wanted it to be bright and full of spring images, I still wanted there to be a slight vintage feel to it, so many of the pages are still coffee dyed and all the journaling cards and elements have been distressed and inked with vintage photo. I also used some of the butterfly clip art from TRD to add to the floral images and theme of the journal. I used patterned scrapbook paper from K&Company to accompany the TRD floral papers and add a pop of more color to this journal. For the cover, I used an upcycled corrugated cardboard box that I covered in wrinkled packing paper. I then handpainted the cover, first with gesso, then with a custom mixed color paint. I have never been a fan of green, but for some reason I find myself recently obsessed with different shades of green. I call this color green – Spring Green. It is a mix between a mint green and a clover green. The cover is also embellished with silk flowers and a removable spine charm, that includes two handmade mixed media beads. I had a lot of fun making this journal and dreaming of Spring (while it is still below freezing here in Michigan. ugh!)
