Winter And Spring

OK, I promise you that this story is going to end, but I have a few pages left to go. 
Sometimes it is just so easy to get rolling and make pages. But I think I have just enough to weave a tale with a bit of suspense-and hopefully it isn't too long a tale.
So today, first the winter page. 

I used this sticky felt trim I had on the left side of the page which made it feel more wintery. Then I painted the fire, added the stamped cameo and also some plastic snowflakes. Then I added the postage stamps and gave the whole page a glittery spray.
Kind of an icy snowy feel.
And then, luckily, after winter comes spring.
Linking this post to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is postage and mail and stamps. Thanks to Valerie and Susi for hosting.
So we're in for a not such a  great weather weekend, at least according to the weatherperson on tv. Seems like we've had a lot of unsettled weather lately. The flowers are loving it, but not sure about the rest of us. Especially on the weekend when everyone is home.
So hope your weather is beautiful and your weekend is starting off in a really good way!
Thanks for visiting.

Both is just beautiful Erika ... I like the winter page as well as the spring page!

Our weather turns also to the rainy side maybe more time for being inside.
Happy weekend to you!
Thank you so much for two more wonderful pages for our post & postage theme Erika!

I believe this is my first time visiting your blog and I simply ADORE your winter and spring pages. The winter entry helped cool me off, because it is incredibly hot where I live and it helped me remember what winter is supposed to feel like. Of course, I like the lovely colors and feel of spring.

Oh my gosh!!! I had to go back through posts to catch up on what was happening with Lizzy and Wally and how they started out!!! WOW..I love this, and am also sorry its coming to an end. What an inspiring totally wonderful idea! I've loved all your journal pages - the backgrounds in mixed media are fabulous...and all the fonts used are great too! I'm glad I spent time here today!
