Spring is a Time to Flourish!


We have the most gorgeous Time to Flourish projects today on the blog. This collection is not only perfect for calendars, but to use for home decor for so many seasons and celebrations! Nichola Battilana uses one of our new Window Shadow Frame Boxes to show off this collection. Then, Yumi Muraeda shows how to make a gorgeous wedding gift with Time to Flourish. What a great Thursday!

First, we have this gorgeous altered framed window. Take it away, Nichola!

"With this piece I wanted to create a sort of pretty window, maybe something you’d stumble upon in an abandoned cottage, maybe something you’d find in an old gardener home. I’d imagine those small bottles to be filled with seeds and essential oils. All of the labels on the vials are various stickers from the Time to Flourish collection. You’ll notice that I’ve placed the window box on a stand (which is simply a rectangle of cut thick masonite). This creates a more stable base and allows me to use those fabulous claw feet! I’ve sandwiched some elements between the provided layers of vinyl which gives an wonderful ‘floating’ effect." ~Nichola
