Susie's Day - Springtime

Well Happy Friday!  Time is just flying by and it's spring already.  It's been a while since I've posted and I have been so excited.  Maybe too excited because I've lost my crafty mojo!  I've been setting spring related items on my table for weeks and rearranging them and adding to them and also taking stuff away just trying to get an idea on what to make.  Nope, nothing came to me at all. Been going through paper, embellishments, everything I've got and still nothing.  So I'm sitting there playing a game on my laptop and still thinking and I actually got an idea.  Not a great idea but at least a step in the right direction.  What about all those practice painting pieces I have!!  Years ago I was trying to teach myself to paint and I was using waxed paper to practice and saved all of them, good and bad.  Yes, I'm one of those!

So I looked and found the folder and pulled out flowers and a humming birds.  I finally decided on the humming birds and put one of them in a plastic folder I made so it wouldn't chip and glued a piece of yellow cardstock to the back.  I set it on the table and kept walking away until I could figure out what to do next.  Never really came up with anything, but did keep adding to it.  It was going to be a card, but got too big to be a card.  Didn't really want to do a layout with it, so now I think I may just frame it and put it in my craft room.

Here are a few pictures I took and of course there is ribbon and bows, my trademark.  I also used the fabric covered buttons I got from Pinque Peacock.

Here is the humming bird, I used creative license on the colors.  hehehe

These are the fabric covered buttons from Pinque Peacock.  My photos don't do the colors justice for some reason, all the colors are very bright, but don't show up that way.

And last but not lease is the whole 'layout'.

Hope you enjoyed my springtime project and have a great weekend!
