A Beautiful Day Deserves a Song

The weekend is almost here. This week was really warm ( love it!) and it flew right by. If I had spring fever a week ago I really have it now.
So today I have a journal page. I painted the background and the spring trees. Then I stamped, fussy cut and colored the bird. The image is one of Dina Wakely's stamps.  This is also true for the sentiment stamped on the page, and the little uncolored background birds.
I wanted this bird to be singing because with this spring weather, all the birds are making a joyful song right now.
So it is Friday which means it is time for Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting. :)
And I am also linking my page to Art Journal Journey.  This month's theme is into the woods and is being hosted by Chris from Pear Shape Crafting.
So hope everyone has something fun on the weekend agenda. Whatever fun is for you, not saying it has to be something out of the ordinary. I myself am hoping for some studio time, getting out walking, and a little (stress on the little) bit spring cleaning because with this warm weather, my house is crying out for a good refreshing.
Happy Friday everyone- and
as always, I appreciate you stopping by for a visit.

Very appropriate for the spring that is tantalizingly close. Enjoy your weekend.

You've included two of my favourite things in your post today Erika, trees and birds.
It's certainly looking and sounding very springy out there. I'm beginning to think winter is behind us finally.
Enjoy and thanks for sharing your beautiful journal page.
Happy PPF to you

This is an awesome painting. I like the beautiful bird and can already hear its song. So glad your weather is good, because it's been super here.
