Hi everyone.
Today I have a page for Try It On Tuesday.  The newest theme is add a quote. I've got a stack of journal pages with painted flowers, as its been my obsession lately. Some of them have quotes, like this one.
My background is a Gelli printed page (time to make some more, my stash is about gone), and I used acrylic paints and some Distress crayons to make my flowers. 
So speaking of flowers- I looked out one of my back windows yesterday and saw the little tips of some crocuses popping up. I painted a whole thick row of bulbs last fall, and now there are tips of green in that spot. :) Maybe by later today there will be a bit of color. 
I am ready for that.
Hope everyone had a wonderful day,
and thanks for visiting.  I appreciate it.

Such a happy page. Great quote. I saw some crocus blooms by the driveway yesterday. Himself planted a bunch of tulip bulbs along the driveway and lots of green shoots are coming up. And yesterday, all of a sudden the swamp maples across the street have buds on them. So much nicer to see things blooming instead of snow.

Well we had that nice couple of days and now colder. Like your page though, makes me feel hopeful hearts and flowers. xox

As usual, I seem to be running behind. This is a beautiful TioT entry, AND a lovely piece in general. I adore it. The flowers are perfect, too.

Now that is a happy page. Bold flowers. Bold colours! And I see lots of little hearts as well as the flowers. (I'm also one of those people that see images in everything)
I like the quote too. I certainly am enjoying spring.
Have a lovely Easter weekend,

Gorgeous blue flowers! I can see that they have a bit of dimension to them which really adds to their beauty. I need to get out my Gelli plate and do some more work. It's funny how we tend to all go after a technique till the next one comes along. Sometimes we need to revisit the former ones.

A lovely floral page, the blue flowers really 'pop' against your background.
Have a lovely Easter weekend and I hope the colour starts appearing in your garden.

I like the "add a quote" concept! The flowers are really pretty!

You have been such a faithful visitor while I've been sort of struggling over the past week or so. Thank you for all your nice words. My surgical consult is a week from today and I hope to get a date then for one to two weeks out! Yay. Meanwhile, I am eating more healthily!

Happiest of Easters! Now, onward to other posts!
