April Showers.

So onto the April calendar page for The Craft Barn challenge which couldn't for me be anything other than 'April Showers'. The theme for this month was masks and yellow.
I used a Tando creative mask called 'Garden with Watering Can' as I thought I could work that quite well into the page. The mask was made up of several elements watering can, flowers & grass, clouds & sun and butterflies (which I didn't incorporate on this occasion). The mask was placed over the page and I coloured using promarkers being careful not to let the paper bleed.
Picture is not that brilliant but if you look closely you should just be able to see that the watering can is spraying drops of water i.e. Glossy accents down the page. (I love using this product). My take on april showers!
Blanking days are more masked clouds raining this time and the days of the week were masked onto a seperate sheet cut out , covered with Glossy accents and adhered with foam sticky pads.

Phew!! Coasting down hill now as I have caught up with the current theme for this week which is
Pink (my fav colour) and Birds so watch this space as they say.

  3. This is a lovely "April" calender page Mrs A, love the watering can droplets.
    Glossy accents is an amazing product. Not only do I use it as a glossy accent! I use it as a brilliant glue too. In my houses and my Tim Holtz boxes I wouldn't use anything else.

  4. Love it, I think it's my favourite one so far. I can see the little droplets from the watering can too - that really is a great product the Glossy Accents.
