Calvinblogging with a Bunny Nose

As we near the end of March, we also near the end of calvinball. This is my second time playing and I must admit I am sad to see it end.  I am excited to see what game Doris comes up with for next month. Playing these games always keeps me using up my kits.

Today, I wanted a quick fix. I grabbed a sketch from and then set to work mixing and matching some papers and embellishments from my February and March JBS Mercantile kits. Whether you kit club or make your own, some kits will mix and match well. I like to keep a set on a shelf near my desk. After a some time, I do break them down so they can be remixed into new kits. This keeps me using up my supplies.

I decided to work with one of the lessons from Wilna Furstenburg's HeArt class at Two Peas in a bucket. While I have used many of the supplies that Wilna uses, there have been a few new tricks I have learned. I have used Tulle and fabric before, but never like this. I love how the flower sequins are layers inside and on top of the tulle.
