Let's Sprout

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Cocoa Daisy, Neocolor II/Derwent Artbar, Scrapbooking Layouts, Spraypaint, Utee

well…at least with the Cocoa Daisy “Sprout” April Kit – because seriously- with that weather here right now…nothing sprouts….LOL.

Grocery Shopping

Maybe I am the only person that loves grocery shopping? LOL- sometimes when I talk to my friends they say how much they dread it- I so love grocery shopping. But maybe it is also a bit different when you live in a city and you can just walk and grab everyday a couple of things at stores and the market and cook it then for the dinner.

I added some faux stitching around the MME paper designed by Rhonna Farrer- so love this paper.

Memory Lane

This photo was taken in January on the Route 66 (no kidding huh…it is pretty clearly visible on the photo, Nat ;) ). This is an old motel with an old gas station and the owner bought it in 2000 and all of the interior and stuff was still original from the 50s- soooo cool! Roy’s Cafe- if you are ever close to Amboy- check it out.

I stamped with the Cocoa Daisy Tab Stap on paper and cut it out and then applied some brads and mounted it on 3D Foam Stamps. I also used some Denim Glimmer Mist and Gesso stamped with a paper role and added some colors here and there with the Derwent Artbars. Love how they apply to photos!

Follow Your Heart

It was so beautiful in Death Valley and what a view….especially the guy in the foreground ;)

I painted some of the honeycomb paper with Maya Mist and a brush – love the vibrancy of those colors.

Also sprayed the wooden Maya Road Bird with Maya Mist and then cut out the Manufacturer strip for the bird a I liked that banner so much. The Maya Road Bottle Cap was dunked into blue Utee and melted …yum yum yum – what an awesome texture and color…me thinks I need more of this colored Utee ;)

Have you planted anything yet? I might at least get some flowers hoping for planting and sprouting time :)

Have a gorgeous day

    I’m jealous of your route 66 adventure — driving down it before it disappears is *totally* on my life list. :)

    That first layout was my favorite from this month’s international CD gallery- GREAT design and color. I REALLY love your Route 66 layout- the painted elements are fabulous. PS- I got your message- I agree with you on the FB profile thing. Great idea actually!

    Nathalie, this was a great post! Love your work with hexagons! And you made some really fabulous embellishments on some of these layouts…that blue UTEE is to die for! Thanks for the inspiration…and yes, I am one of the ones who is NOT a fan of food shopping! (I think it is different in a city.) xo
