I know these aren't Spring colours but it's just how it evolved as I was making it.
Cover a tag with old book paper.
Scrape some black and white gesso randomly over the surface using the flat side of a palette knife creating some lovely flat textures.
Stitch on some vintage book/music paper or some of your favourite patterned papers. Leave the threads hanging (it's all the rage).
Take a stencil with a small pattern and with a black pen trace the shapes and colour them in. I used one of the Artistic Flair tab stencils and a black sharpie pen.
Cut some of Tim's Wildflowers from white/cream card and blend the edges with ground espresso distress ink and black archival ink.
Adhere them to the background and finish with a word from the big chat stickers and blended ground espresso round the edges.
I managed to keep some of the book words showing that are perfect for this time of the year.
I think we have all got a bit of this ......
