Seasonal Expressions 1 Blog Hop




January means we have a new Idea Book! Seasonal Expressions 1 went live on January 1st and will go through April 30th. So let's get to the blog hop and show you a ton of fun and creative ideas! If you've come from the blog of Miss Carrie's Creations you're doing fine. Just click the link in each post to hop to the next blog.

There are so many exciting products in this new book it was hard to know where to start. Soon it became obvious to me that the Feels Like Home paper collection and Budding Peony stamp set with Thin Cuts were my favorite and that's what I wanted to share. See photos at end of post.

I used the Make It from Your Heart how-to book for a pattern and the rest just fell into place with that starting point. The design of the flowers made me think watercolors. Our new watercolor pencils are so creamy and smooth. After  stamping in Archival Ink on Watercolor paper then coloring I used a water brush to gently blend the colors. In the flower centers I used some of the Black Shimmer Brush. I used Thin 3D Foam Tape under the flower on the left page so there would be room to slip a photo under the flower later on.
