Flitting About

Hi everyone. We're having yet another warm up here today, which is another tease before the next storm arrives in our direction this weekend. What a winter- as I am sure many of you will agree.
Typical of me, I am good with winter until February and then I can't take it anymore. Unfortunately I must, but I can dream about summer and so that's the theme of my page today.
I am linking up to Art Journal Journey where Rike is hosting  this really fun challenge: Animals A-Z. The hardest part of this challenge is picking an animal to make a page about. 
I started my page with a Gelli printed background (made on some printed paper-you can see some of that peeking through). I saw the flowers and that made me think of hummingbirds. I don't know what bird is my favorite as there are so many fascinating ones, but hummingbirds are definity one of the most interesting.  
That's all for me today.
Hope everyone is well, and I appreciate your visit to my blog.

I can feel the movement and energy put off by those fast flying hummingbirds. They are adorable and I was also impressed with how you changed that background, too. It's a stunning entry for Art Journal Journey today. Thanks for sharing it with us, Erika.

Your page is definitely Summer which I've been dreaming about since Summer ended. Love the hummingbirds. We have one that comes around. He likes the honeysuckle. A storm? I didn't hear about a storm? CJ puts her fingers in her ears. la la la la la

Wow, your background is terrific, so much depth! I love your green hummingbirds each with a crown on its head, flitting around in a circle - the "dancing kings"! Fantastic colors you chose!
I don't like winter - it is grey and brown and cold, because we have no snow here. I too dream about spring and summer and so I like your page very much!
Thank you for joining us again at AJJ, much appreciated!

Your page is beautiful and I love hummingbirds they come back to visit us mid april.
our weather is all over the place still like a roller coaster haha we will get to 75 degrees f with wind today and the high tomorrow 35 degrees f really craziness this year-I fear the ice may come back over the weekend as we have so much water all over
Have a great day

It's been dreary and rainy this week, so I can sympathize with your longing for summer. That page is a good start -and it reminds me I need to get a new hummingbird feeder ;)

That is a gorgeous colour for your background. , it for sure, brightens up what has been another dull day here today. I love your Humming Birds as well.
You made me think about what bird would be my favourite, maybe I would choose a Robin, but have to say it would be a hard choice to make and choose just one.

Wow, what an beautiful happy page! The gelli plate background is amazing and the colours you used made me smile they are so bright and cheery 😁. The hummingbirds are perfect and look very regal in their crowns - perfect 😁. Happy Friday and wishing you a lovely weekend! J 😊

Love the colors in this. (I like hummingbirds, too). Hope you survive the snow storm. Maybe you're getting ours a week late! We're due for rain this time. And Monday, 50. Go figure. Our whole world's temperature/water situation is in a pickle!

Oh wow, what luminous colors dear Erika. I love the wonderful ornaments on the background and the crowned hummingbirds. Great page!
