Some green card fun for March

Hello again, I managed some time to create (play) in my studio yesterday and this is what I came up with. Following the Atlantic Hearts Challenge #202 using this sketch: 
And the Color my heart color dare #234 pick your green, I created this: 
I used Fern and New England Ivy card stock with the New England Ivy ink. The one strip is embossed with the diamonds folder from Close to my heart and embossed  with clear embossing powder. The gold polka dot is a washi tape from awhile back. There is still time for you to join in the fun and play too. The Atlantic Hearts Challenge always has a new sketch on Monday's and the Color my heart picks new colours on Fridays.

This Chair

Hi again, I thought I would try a scrapbook layout for a change. Last Easter I spotted this chair at my brother's home and was delighted. I took a few photos to help me remember, then as I am taking a class on remembering our journey thought I would scrap it! Creative Scrapbooker has a Sketchy Gallery, where you can find monthly sketches to inspire you to create. I choose to use this one 2017_Feb_sketch_kellyklapstein__FINAL.jpgfrom February this year. Yes I know I do not have two photos, but these are for inspiration. I am also using colour inspiration from the colour my heart colour dare colour dare #233, where we are asked to use theses colours:  No automatic alt text available. Black, white daisy, pomegranate, peacock and sea glass. A few weeks ago I took part in a paint night where we painted a circle, I used a similar technique on my layout. I used the larger brush water colour brush and picked up the colour from the lids of my inks, after giving them a good squeeze while closed, and painted my circles. This is my creation: 
It was fun to play with colour and record some of my memories of these chairs.
