“Enjoying The Spring” by Aleksandra Mihelič

Hi dear 49 and Market friends,

Have I told you already that I love springtime? Yes, I do also love winter… I love the winter magic that we feel in this special time of the year. But, each year I’m so anxiously waiting for the spring to come. I love when nature is awakening, when warm spring sun is shining on us, when everything blossoms. I love spring fragrances of the flowers. And I absolutely adore birds and butterflies. So today I made a layout for you in which I tried to capture that spring feeling. I hope you like it and feel inspired by it.

For the background, I used two papers from different collections. The dark one is from the latest “Vintage Remnants” collection and the other one is from “Vintage Artistry”. I also cut out some bits and pieces from the “Vintage Artistry – Flora and Fauna” paper and I also used Laser Cut Shapes that I’ve been admiring since I first laid my eyes on them – “Dandelion Paradise”. Not only are they are gorgeous and breathtaking by design, but they are also so amazing and easy to use, especially if you are the kind of crafter who does not like fussy cutting too much.

I wanted to add some mixed media touches to the layout, but in between the process decided not to. All the layers I built with papers and laser cut shapes were perfect and I wanted to keep it that way. I wanted to concentrate my layout in the left lower space. I really love some empty space on my layouts.
