Blue Fern Studios chipboard Spring Iris - Large that I misted in different hues of green and then swiped randomly with pale blue acrylic paint before dipping into white Flower Soft for fluffy blossom heads, almost like dandelions just before they start floating in the wind like little hot air balloons.

I also used the Blue Fern Studios chipboard Royal Bird Frame that I randomly painted in all the colours shown in the first photo.

I promise you will be totally bowled over by her incredible techniques and use of colour!
When I attended one of Finnabair's workshops in Stockholm earlier this year, we used some cool transparent epoxy stickers. You just plop the sticky side onto a patterned paper and cut out the shape. Brilliant custom made pebbles!
Thanks ever so much for your visit! I'll be back on Tuesday, 4 June with a page for Norwegian Skissedilla.
Every day is a new day full of wonderful Summer Delight. Remember to start off your hopping at PaperHaus Magazine.
