Think Spring!

I know many of you across the U.S. are being blasted with snow and cold weather so I thought I would spread a little warmth and cheer on this Tuesday with a layout featuring a field of beautiful sunflowers.

The Daffodil Hill kit was the perfect complement to  the field of yellow sunflowers. I selected this dot background that Patricia posted on our Inspiration Board as my guide for the design of the layout.

I felt the small dots were a good pair for the round sunflowers.

Here is my interpretation of the design piece.
Using my Silhouette I created a circle background similar to the design and then sprayed the circles in shades from yellow to dark orange.
I created the flower banners by punching flowers in various shapes and then fed them through my sewing machine and stitched them together using the longest stitch available on my machine.
For the title I wanted a natural organic look so I pulled some alphabet wood veneers from my stash and sprayed them with brown mist.

If you would like to create a layout with your own circle background I'm sharing the file, free for your personal use. Download the circle background right here!

If you use it I would love to see what you create!

Thank you for visiting, have a fabulous day everyone!
