March GREEN Challenge by Elizabeth
Design Team Member Elizabeth submitted this layout for the March GREEN Challenge. She said:
This is my favourite spring photo of the year – love snowdrops. The white base is sprayed in patches with two shades of green Cosmic Shimmer Mist. The papers are from K & Company’s Flora & Fauna collection, and Papermania’s Secret Garden ... this last has been in my stash for a couple of years at least. The photo is matted on to a brown floral paper and the fern leaves, bird on apple blossom, rose spray and the letters for the word green were fussy cut from the Flora & Fauna DP. The rest of embellishments, Prima and Wild Orchid Craft flowers, lace and pearl trim and ribbon are all from my stash.
Finding snowdrops this spring proved to be difficult – we have had a warm winter which fooled the snowdrops into an early show so by the time we went looking we were told we were too late. It was, therefore, a lovely surprise to find this little clump during a walk in nearby Culzean Castle Estate. Snowdrops are best planted ‘in the green’ – that is straight out of the ground or pot, hence the layout title. Planting bulbs is less successful. Knowing this I was really tempted to dig up this wee clump and bring them home – however, it’s against the law here in the Scotland to do that. Instead, I have this lovely photograph and layout as a constant reminder of their fresh loveliness.
Now it's your turn to take the March GREEN Challenge. The March Challenge is anything to do with GREEN. It could be a project using the color Green, or about being "green" - or you could use the word Green in your title. The possibilities are endless. Anything goes! So think GREEN and take the challenge. To participate in the March GREEN Challenge - just email a picture of your project along with a description to Scrappinpsycho@live.com
All submissions will be posted to The Scrap Our Stash blog and on March 31st a winner will be chosen, and given the opportunity to be a Guest Design Team Member for the month of May. This challenge ends at midnight central time on March 31st.
