Spring Board

So it was back to my normal routine now that Spring break is over.  My bulletin board at work was halfway done before the break, and I made sure to finish it on the day we go back.  Everybody in our area is really waiting for Spring to start - meaning green grass and flowers.  I wanted to depict that in our bulletin board this month.

I cut the flowers and title with the Cricut Machine.  I touched up each flower with some Crayola paint, then I layered them to create the 3D effect.  After that, I adhered rhinestones in the center of each assembled flower.  The grass I just drew with Crayola paint, while the butterflies were cut with Spellbinders, and touched with glitter gel pens.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Embassy, construction paper
ink:  Crayola, gel pens
tools:  Cricut Expressions, Gypsy, Spellbinders, Big Shot
embellishments:  rhinestones
Adhesive:  Scotch, glue stick, mounting tape

I love this month's board design.  I might keep it 'til next month.

Hope you can join us in Creative Vision's Bunny Hop Blog Game for some fun and prizes.  Click here for more info.
