Spring bouquet - JOFY and Lin Brown

Spring? did anyone say spring? 
As I write this, spring has been VERY shy so far this year, but I am hoping that, by the time you read this post, we would have finally had some warmer days. 
So this week we will celebrate Spring or to invite it to settle once and for all... either/or.... :D

PaperArtsy introduced some new stamps earlier in the year... some designed by the talented Jo Firth Young (aka JOFY)...

 others designed by the equally talented Lin Brown

We also have the matching dies for the Lin Brown's stamps. 

So who better than the two designers themselves to start the week? 
Lin and Jo were kind enough to send me some stunning samples to share with you. 

Let's start with Lin ....

Our second Designer Jo has made this beautiful canvas

Paint the canvas board with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints- shading blue to green.
Stencil on meadow flowers with Toad Hall Fresco Finish paint  .
Stamp flower along the bottom edge with black Archival ink 
A die cut clock face is added to the canvas 
(before gluing in place it was painted dark brown, and drawn lines added) 

Once all the stamped flower heads were in place the same flowers were stamped onto various decorative papers and added to the canvas. 

 Additional detail & shading was added to the flowers with paint and Distress Markers, buttons and layering of papers.

A word strip was added to the bottom edge of the canvas (Tim Holtz Tattered Banners Sizzlit die)

Jo used:
Dies: Tim Holtz/Sizzix:  Tattered Banners & Weathered Clock

See you tomorrow
