2013 Spring Time

Today I decided to combine two challenges. I used the sketch challenge at Stick It Down http://stickitdown.blogspot.ca/2014/01/tuesday-sketch-challenge.html

and the "Inspired By" challenge at ScrapStuffz http://scrapstuffz.blogspot.com.au/2014/01/welcome-to-2014-and-another-inspired-by.html


Here's my interpretation of the combined challenges.


The photo of our bougainvillea was taken in November last year. I've taken many photos of our garden in November for the past three years, since the draught broke. I chose this photo because of the stunning size and colour of the bougainvillea but I have so many other photos of the beautiful blooms in our Spring garden and I used a few of them to make some of my embellishments. I fussy cut some flowers from my photos and matted them in white. I layered them on the page along with other embellishments to create some depth. I also made the bunting out of photos of a ground cover plant. You can see how I did this in the following photos.


Thanks for stopping by :)
