Welcome Spring

Hi everyone!
Today I'm up on the Clear Scraps Blog, but I wanted to share here with you as well.
Just a few more days until Spring arrives on our doorstep.
My daffodils have been in bloom for a couple of weeks now, which inspired this project today to welcome in the new season.

I'll be using these items from Clear Scraps.

I grabbed a wreath from the dollar store, paper from my stash, Clear Scraps products, alcohol ink and went to town.

(You can click on the photo to see it larger)

Playing with alcohol ink is just so much fun.
Our schedule here at home as been particularly full lately, and I found applying the alcohol ink to the Clear Scraps acrylic to be a stress reliever.

Aren't the colors reminiscent of spring?

I also wanted to mention that crafty inspiration for this cone wreath came from Cassie, I first saw these made on her blog.
I love her gorgeous banners and wreaths, go check her out!
Hope your Thursday is filled with beauty!

I am also linking this up to Paper Issues Go Green linky!!

hugs, Leah
