Spring Star Dust

Morning Peeps,

God where does the weekend go. My mojo is still missing in action although I have acomplished two cards this weekend, this being one of them, I hope it returns soon though. I do seem to have the spring fever and want to sort out my craftroom, so this confirms there is something definitely wrong with me, lol.  I'm blaming Elaine, she's had a good sort out and there's a place for everything, so here goes.  Speaking of Elaine, be sure to check out the Simply Sassy Inspiration Blog tomorrow as the fabby Elaine is in the spotlight, woo hoo. 

My daughter suggested colouring  Star Dust in yellow, which I have to admit is a colour I never do, so I have gone with it, and to be honest I am still not sure. Yellow just isn't me although I see alot of beautiful creations out there, perhaps it will grow on me.

I have followed the sketch over at the Sugar Bowl, with the option of Spring, and I deinitely think these are spring colours.

The papers were a gift from the fabuluous Elaine, thank you hun.   I have glitzed her blow with star dust stickles and added very sparkly glamour dust to all the stardust falling out of her hand and onto the floor, in fact I am still wearing them myself, I always end up covered, lol.

I have coloured her with copics and a few prisma pencils.

A great colour choice from your daughter and such beautiful papers!! Love Chanelle xxxx

Perhaps spring cleaning the craft room and finding items you had forgot you had may do the trick, but from where I'm seated you have still got it!!

I like your interpretation of the skeetch & espcially those green leaves. The pearls pikc up the oclour of her dress bautifully & I rather like her in yellow. the sparkle is very effective. Hope you have a good week & Mr Mojo makes his presence felt again; it certainly looks as if he's about.

Beautiful card Tracy.
I don't EVER use yellow, but I love the colour, so fresh and 'Springy'.
I wouldn't have known those were 'the' papers. I thought they were absolutely dire but you've made them look so pretty. You are obviously much better than I am at putting colours together.
As for the clear out, I'm glad to hear I was a good influence on you, I'm more often accused of being a bad influence!
Looks like your Mojo is fine to me.

Love Elaine xx

i love her in yellow!!...I'd probably never think to color her in yellow, just cuz seems like people like to make her more shabby chic...but I really think you gave her a great look!!...very spring-y:):)...although, anything you do is amazing...mojo or not:)
