Spring is Here-At Least on the Calendar

Happy Spring! It is the Spring Equinox and officially winter is over! Hope you have beautiful seasonal weather in your world. In my world we're waiting for snow to melt and hopefully to be done with. We don't need any any new snow falling from the sky until next winter. The weather has to get beautiful soon!

Today  I want to say THANK YOU  to the team over at Try It on Tuesday. I'm honored to be offered this chance to be a guest hostess.

The new theme is this The Call of Spring based on this beautiful mood board.
Here's my journal page inspired by these gorgeous photos.
I began by pasting some strips of a book page onto some watercolor paper. Then I stamped the bird (Stampendous) in the middle of the page. I doodled and painted some flowers and my tree branch. I also outline  them with some watercolor crayons and Stabilo pencils. Once the images were finished, I stamped the words onto the page.
I hope you are as inspired by this mood board as I was. We'd love to see you over at Try It On Tuesday for this challenge in the next 2 weeks.
And with the spring theme I am linking up to Art Journal Journey and Rosie's challenge there which is also spring. Thanks Susi for suggesting I do that also.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The only way I can see Spring is to look at your beautiful page and inspirational mood board. I take it you're not getting the Four'easter tomorrow? Lucky you! I'm going to wedge myself on the window sill in a fetal position with Ben Dover.

First of all, congrats on being a guest over on ToT, your page has really captured the moodboard and is beautiful and so Springlike!

Here the snow has melted away thank goodness, yesterday was a beautiful Springlike day, today is a bit more grey, but as long as there is no more snow I am happy.
Have a good rest of the week! We are off to Oz as of tonight, so I won't be able to visit for a while, hope you have an amazing trip to Japan!!
