2020 #2 A Hint of Spring: Spring has returned with EGL {by Josefine Fouarge}

2020 Topic 2: A Hint of Spring

This is a fresh, cheerful colour combination, that touch of coral is a delight against the blues, and that background is divine! Check out her video in the post to really get to grips with how she creates such wonderful creations!~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Josefine here and I'm so excited to be back. 

How did the first month of 2020 go for you? I hope it started out great! I definitely had some fun playing with some of the new stamps and paints from PaperArtsy. The "Spring" topic was great for playing with two of Seth's new paints, as well as Gwen's new stamp set EGL06. When I first saw her set, I had to think of flowers. Why? You'll hear more about that during my video (see below :) ).

Gwen's new stamps set EGL06 has so many fun patterns and shapes that it easy to use them for backgrounds, but also for focal points. 

For my tag, I used the circles as background patterns, to embellish the petals of the flowers, and to create the stem of the flower. 

Since I was creating a project for the "Spring" topic, I picked a few softer colors. 

I started with two of the new Seth Apter Fresco Finish colors - Blue Bayou (FF206) and Heavy Cream (FF203) - as well as Summer Sky (FF150) for the background. Then I added Mustard Pickle (FF148), Peachy Keen (FF157), and Peach Nectar (FF144) for the flowers.

In addition, I used Allison Bomber's EAB06 set, which includes a variety of Spring poems, to add a sentiment at the end. 

Here is a video that shows you how I put everything together:

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my tag and the process video and got a bit into the spring mood. Now I'm curious - what would a spring project look like for you? 
If you want to see more spring inspiration, check out the other posts on the PaperArtsy blog - existing and upcoming - and leave all the amazing designers some love.

See you again soon, Josefine.

What a stunning background... love the grungy "earth" floating up into the blue sky - and the white on black quote is so cool.

Thanks, everyone:) I just realized that the background looks similar to the stamp packaging backgrounds. Total coincidence, lol ;)
