Spring Has Sprung Blog Hop | SDS-SVGAttic

Welcome to the SVG Attic-SnapDragon Snippets Spring Has Sprung blog hop and to my blog!  
We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you have been inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and Snapdragon Snippets.

You should be arriving from the busy talented Rhonda's blog. If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

I have created two layouts for this hop.  First up is this layout with a background I created using watercolors.
You have to trust me that the colors look much better in person, more subtle.
On this layout I used the "Dyeing to have some fun", "eggs and brush" files.

 And it does not look this wrinkled in person either.  Something about the sun and my camera made it look... mhhh too much light?  Anyway, I really really like it!

I added gold thread behind the picture and stitched some messy stitches on the bottom left of the layout, and added a bunny and ducky paperclips.

I forgot to ink or add shading to my "dyeing to have some fun" sign and I was not liking it, so I added shading with a Prismacolor pencil and I liked it better.  I used colored vellum on the dye container as my layer and behind the picture.  I inked the brush with alcohol markers.

For my second layout I used a file that I have been wanting or meaning to use for a while now.  The "On the hunt" is such file.  I like it so much that I pretty much used the colors that you see on the store's ad.

The layout.
For this layout I got a bit more creative and ambitious.  I decided to do the weaving right on the layout instead of on a separate panel. Love it! and it was really not that hard.

 A closer look at the weaving.

A closer look at the dimension.  I added 3D foam adhesive to this photo and some of the flowers.

Snapdragon Snippets files used:
Dying to have some fun layout
file # 56523 egg painting
file file # 26169 'dyeing...fun' phrase
On the hunt layout
file # 26168 'on the hunt' phrase
file # 56520 flowers
file # 56521 grass & border
file = weaving
I also cut additional eggs from the sign layers in white and colored them with alcohol markers.
