Spring Cleaning
by Michele K. Henderson

Hello Everyone!

Are you in the mood for a little spring cleaning? These little bluebirds are sprucing up the yard . . .or are they making a mess? Either way, they are just SO cute you will want to add them every place you can! I used the Small Chickadee, an old favorite, and turned these fabulous Mushrooms and Toadstools into step stools to help them get the job done.

I love creating cards that portray a little scene, or paint a visual picture. The trick is to mix and match your dies so that the images will always remain in perspective, creating or implying foreground and background. I wish I could tell you that there's always a hard and fast rule for creating perspective in your cards, such as big images in the front and little images in the back, but you can always use your dies to "force" perspective in new and creative ways. Sometimes, if I'm trying to work out a little scene, I will cut out a few of the dies in plain white cardstock and move them around the frame to see how they will look. You can also create scenes that extend off the page, or create multiple layers of depth, with trees and flowers in the front, and mountains or houses in the back. One of the reasons I love creating with Poppystamps is the terrific collection of images that make creating outdoor nature scenes a breeze, and you can be as realistic or as artistic as you like!
