"Spring Into the Studio"

It's "Spring Into the Studio" over at Paper Issues!  The team has a fun blog hop going on just to get us excited for Spring.  There are some fabulous Spring project ideas they are sharing with you to get your creative juices flowing.  The project I would like to contribute is this "peace" window I created.  Bursting with loads of vivid color, this is definitely one of my faves.  I have noticed one of the hot color schemes for Spring is the melon & robin egg blue.  The fabulous paper in the background is a Paper Source exclusive, Marigold.  I love the navy vintage plate I used for the tile.  It pops off the marigold pattern beautifully.  I usually always try to get matchy matchy with my tile and papers, but this time I took a chance and tried something different.  I must say I was delighted with the outcome.

I hope that my window has inspired you, put a little spring in your step, or even just a put a little smile on your face.  :) Be sure and peruse the Paper Issues Blog Hop, not only will you get tons of inspiration, there is a fantastic prize up for grabs.  Studio Calico is the sponsor, need I say more? 

Thanks for stopping by!
Amy
