Happy Thursday everyone. We are having another beautiful spring day here in New Hampshire. Cool mornings, in the 50's (around 13 degrees C) during the day, and lots and lots of sunshine. I couldn't ask for better weather on my school break. (Seeing usually it is cold and maybe even snowy and I' m stuck inside all week.)
I love when you get up in the morning and the birds are singing.
It inspired me to make this page. I started with a strip of leftover green plaid paper and this strip of leaf paper. You can't tell the leaves are flocked but they are. I attached these to a sheet of watercolor paper. And then I rubbed some green paint on the final right hand third of the page- as well as the scallops I cut on my background watercolor paper.
I then painted the branches and glued on the die cut birds. I recently got a cool die from Hero Arts that cuts out 12 little birds in various positions, so it gave me lots to play with on this page. Then I added a tad of silver tape, some small paper flowers from my stash, and I stamped the final image.
I am linking up to the new challenge this month at Art Journal Journey hosted by Rosie. The challenge is Spring. I am also linking up to Moo Mania where the challenge right now is Welcome Spring.
So hopefully the weather in my world will last but since it is only March first, I am sure old man winter will rear his ugly head at least once more. Probably once all our snow is totally gone and then we will get a huge dumping. The saying is that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, but it is certainly starting here like a lamb.
I am OK with that too.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
