Party Time... Waiting For Spring!

 I don't know about you, but living in the Northeast is an exercise in patience.  Waiting for the long, cold, bitter winter to be over and Spring to work it's green, warm  magic is just torture!  I want to sit in the sun, look out at my lawn and see green, and plant flowers!  I am not very patient!  Here is a little ode to my waiting 4 spring to arrive!
 I used a Studio Calico kit and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products on this layout!  Starting with a wash of color using Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone, Mango, Banana, Blood Orange, and Metallic Mint.
 I used a stencil of a doily and the Whipped Spackle through it over the floral paper to really create drama!  I also stamped the flowers using a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black.

 Another stencil was used (from Prima) with Gelatos® Colors applied with a foam applicator. My youngest son even wanted to try this technique on his own paper after watching me do it!
This project is colorful and I'm really hoping it brings Spring like weather to our area!  I'm so done with old man winter!  Thanks for joining me today and letting me share this layout with you!  Don't forget to check in with Party Time Tuesday blog for more inspiration!
