And now it is time for inspiration from our team!

Here is the project I made after seeing the fresh spring look of this month's mood board.

I’m not usually a pastel colours sort of person but sometimes I like the soft shabby chic look it can give. 

And as I love to celebrate and welcome each new season, this mood board gave me the perfect excuse to get something made to welcome the spring. 

I’ve stuck with some very traditional spring symbology for new growth and fertility (nests, eggs, new growth on plants like pussy willow and pink blossom), as well as adding lots of fluttering moths made from Finnabair moulds. 

I hope the mood board inspires you to join in the challenge and make a project (or two). 

We’re looking forward to seeing what you make.

First thought, when I saw that beautiful moodboard was Easter, all those pretty colors. Think they give you that happyfeel of spring on its way.

Let a light breeze blow through the window, and the singing of birds will fill your room.
 And the aroma of the first timid flowers will turn your head. Spring is a wonderful time!

The background is complicated by texture paste through a stencil. My favourite cracks)
Next, I applied splashes of acrylic paint and mica powder.
Thank you for your attention! And I wish you inspiration and new ideas! Bye-bye!

Today's creation takes you back to nature, but in a slightly tuned form.
I think it will be a nice table or home decoration at Easter. 😊

I choose waste wood as a base, on which both mould elements and metal leaves were placed. 
I put pebbles and flatter stones in the hollows. I collected everything from the surrounding forest. 
In some places, I used waxes to highlight the wood texture.

I put polystyrene eggs on the top of the composition. I applied white gesso, and then I painted Mermail Teal metallique paint and Blue-gold opal magic paint. I splashed it with Ink Black liquid acrylic.
As a final step, I added some glitter and microbeads.
