Game On! Planted
Spring is beckoning and so it would seem, are the requests for layouts about growing plants and gardening. It's just not something I do. I have never had a green thumb unless I had green ink or paint on it. I did however, come across some older photos of my son during one of our homeschool cooperative classes. They should do the trick!
Doris over at the JBS Mercantile Community. First and foremost, I decided to check off the challenge for book papers and stamping. I found a plant book page inside the Magpie kit and I also printed off a damask style pattern from the Haven Kit. Believe it or not, but that piece of damask paper you see on this layout was only printed to a 4x6 size. I cut it apart and simply tucked it under the photos.
The ribbon was a little too wide. I cut it in half which gives it a more rugged look. Don't be afraid to cut apart your supplies. It's always ok to alter them to fit your project.
new Modern Mercantile. I did experiment a bit with a JBS Mercantile stencil and some Spiced Tin ink. I don't think I did the stencil justice, as most of the butterflies were covered with my photos and patterned paper.
Wheat Flower stamp with gold embossing powder to add some details.The gold embossing powder and lovely German Foil met my own challenge to add something shiny to your project.

Maybe I don't have any Spring gardening endeavors this year. I do have some nice memories of trying to garden every once in awhile with my son. Do you have something to share? If so, head on over to the JBS Mercantile Community. You can even issue a Centipede challenge of your own.
