Garden Visit

Hello everyone,

First, I would like to thank everyone for their comments on my Nature's Diary post.  I loved reading your comments. 

I love my wild birds and feed them year round.  Last year I added this solar powered fountain to my garden and they love it!  My daughter took this photo of one of the first visitors to my new fountain. 

In keeping with the nature theme, I created this layout for The Color Room Palette Challenge this week...Family Room. 

The palette features papers and colors from the May Scrap That! kit. 

I used a few Prima flowers along with flowers and stems that I detail cut from my patterned paper.

I detail cut this beautiful lady as well as the vines.  I draped her image over the chipboard frame from Dusty Attic.  I painted the frame green, then went over it with manila acrylic paint.  I used my fingers to achieve this look.  I used a floral mask from Prima and misted my paper lightly with Tattered Angels chalkboard spray.

Patterned Paper:  Pink Paislee - Butterfly Garden
Ink/Paints:  Tattered Angels Chalkboard Spray; Making Memories Acrylic Pain - Manila; Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber - Lettuce.
Punch:  Martha Stewart Crafts - Garden Gate
Flowers and Mask:  Prima
Doily:  My Little Yellow Bicycle
Chipboard:  Dusty Attic
Adhesive:  ATG 700; Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
