Spring Irises- Sparkle N Sprinkle | The Flamingo Chronicals: Spring Irises- Sparkle N Sprinkle

Spring Irises- Sparkle N Sprinkle

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's May Reveal.
Our website was not playing nicely, so we are a bit late showing off our May projects with the new images.

In honor of Mother's Day I have a layout today showing off
the fabulous German Irises I dug out of my Mother's yard many years ago.
These irises are so beautiful and HUGE!!

Here I used multiple coats of EP to get this ultra thick texture.

I used the sentiment from Garden Silhouette to accent around the edge of my layout.

Here I used another sentiment from Garden Silhouettes, and I love the look the Mojito EP gave my chippie!!

My second layout for this reveal uses the new Leafy Flourishes stamp set
Ok, so DD2 and I were at a local small town festival, and of course we have
PIG RACES at these things- and we gotta go to the Pig Races,
because we LOVE Pig Racing! Anyway, the guy was selling theses uber cute
pig snouts and you know that was the photo opportunity of a lifetime
waiting to happen right there!

mmmm,,, DD2 does not seem as overjoyed by the pig snout as I was!
I used the lg flourish behind my photo and heat embossed with Raspberry Tart EP.

For my background color I sprayed Memories Mist Blue Martin directly on the paper, then
I sprayed Memories Mist Cherry Smoothie into a small cup and dripped it on the paper
using a paint brush.

To see all the details on my layout, be sure to check out
