Famous Artists, or Wishful Thinking

The start of a journal page. Started by using orange paint and a Crafter's Workshop stencil.
Then I used another Crafter's Workshop stencil with one of the new Dina Wakely silhouettes. That and some bright blue paint.  I put ehr in one direction 3 times on the right and then flipped over the stencil and put her in the opposite direction on the left.
I stamped the words across the bottom. Several time- the stamp is by Postmodern Design.
Then I put a heavy spray of some Dylusions bubblegum spray ink onto the page.
Can always find a use for Bubblegum pink.
And I let it run a bit down the page.
Then I added this washi tape and decided it needed a border. Something big and bold. So I did some doodling and some coloring. I colored with a white pen and some blue Distress Paints and some Copic markers.
I like my border-I think I was pretty clever-Ha-Ha!
And then I decided the border was enough, so I stopped right there.
Anyhow, on the home front...
Our snow is vanishing fast.
I LOVE it!!!!
Far more bare areas now than snow covered areas.
Even with 2 cooler days yesterday and Tuesday. Now we're back into the normal which is about 50 degrees. It has been a cold spring.

See you again soon.
