Craft Barn Twelve Month Challenge : April

The verse this month is :

April brings the primrose sweet,
Scatters daisies at our feet.

The challenge is to add a primrose or a daisy so I chose daisy giving me the opportunity to revisit my favourite JOFY daisy stamps from PaperArtsy's JOFY 13 stamp set.


I kept it simple because I think the sketchy images are so lovely I did not want to over-work this one. The background is an old book page with a light wash of gesso and some vintage photo distress oxide lightly added.
The daisies are coloured with distress markers : wild honey, spiced marmalade and mowed lawn. I added the verse and my page is done.

Happy Easter everyone.


  1. This is so pretty. You were right to let the beauty of the daisies shine through.

  2. JOFY stamps are always a joy! And gesso is so useful for knocking back the print. Fabulous page.

  3. Love the soft delicacy of this page - thank you for joining the Craft Barn Month challenge xx

  4. I think you're so right to keep it simple. The subtle hints of colour, the beautiful white-washed book text - this is simply lovely, Julia!

  5. A lovely page. The sketchy images work really well with the book paper. xx

  6. I have those stamps but couldn't think how to use them. Your page is fabulous and by keeping it simple you have shown the daisies to perfection.

  7. A very pretty page! Lovely muted background xx
