Hello Spring

 


Hi everyone. 

I can't believe the last 2 weeks have flown by already, and it is once again time for a new challenge at  Try It On Tuesday.

For the next 2 weeks our challenge is Hello Spring. We are looking for spring themed art of any kind, and that can include Easter. 

I have made a journal page for inspiration. My background is inked, stamped and gessoed, as well as using some printed tissue paper and some crayoned in grass. I die cut the bunny and the Easter eggs. The eggs were colored with Faber-Castell markers, and the bunny had some paint and pen details added. I also gave the bunny a fuzzy tail. Unfortunately the shadow created when I photographed the tail makes it look burnt, which it is really not, so please ignore the brownish area around the cottontail. 

I added the flower so my page would also work for Sheila's single flower challenge at Art Journal Journey. The flower is stamped by the stem is created freehand with a paint pen.
That challenge runs through tomorrow (March 31).

I finally added this TH found relatives. I am glad he came out with a new set because it is nice to see some new faces. I think these ladies are waiting for the Easter Bunny to arrive, but the older girl looks like she is a little skeptical of whether there is an Easter Bunny or not.

Don't forget to check out all the inspiration and ideas on the Try It On Tuesday homepage. The design team has made some beautiful pieces to inspire your creativity. We're looking forward to seeing your spring inspired art.

Thanks for visiting.

Cute page. The older girl looks like she wants to get out of the itchy dress and into comfy play clothes. Enjoy the day today as Spring showers are on their way.

This is all so happy and sunny and also pink. Who wouldn't love this giant colour striped bunny and I am glad you reassured us about his tail. Thanks very much for this final(?) flower for our AJJ theme, it's very pretty and is taller than the girls which is just the kind of flower I like. And I've liked all of your flowers a lot.

A tad late with my catching up - this is a lovely page Erika, full of lovely Spring colours and images, love the different expressions on the girls faces - one full of expectation and the other hmmm.. yes, she thinks she's too grown up for the Easter Bunny!
