Sweet Treats

Week 14 at Journal 52 has the prompt of Sweet Treats. Most apt with Easter at the weekend! Hope you all had a fab Easter and didn't feel too sick on all that chocolate floating around! I knew what I wanted to include in my journal page this week, but how to do it? That was a whole other issue!

I love Lindt Gold Bunnies! Everyone has to have one at Easter - just to look at! Well, maybe have a nibble on too. So I took a photograph of the Gold Bunnies I bought for friends and family this Easter and then created an image transfer onto my journal page. Around this I added Tim Holtz tissue tape, layered with acrylic paint and then added some stamps - a fern, birds, postcard writing and honeycomb. They were stamped in acrylic paint as well as Stazon. This took a lot of layering and re-painting to get something that I think kind of works! I finished with a bit of doodling around the bunnies and a bit of text, then added a dark brown distress ink edge. Hope you are all enjoying this Easter week. Definitely loving the sunshine that has finally appeared here in the UK!
