Hi everyone. Hope you have a nice Wednesday and a nice St. Patrick's Day too. We're almost to the first day of spring (or autumn for those of you south of the equator) also. In New Hampshire we finally are supposed to warm back up so it feels more spring like. Monday was brutally cold with an arctic wind, and yesterday we had a bit of a warm up, but certainly not spring like temperatures. I'm definitely ready for more spring like weather after the little winter temperature return we just had and after the beautiful temperature tease we had last week.
My page today is or Sheila's single flower challenge at Art Journal Journey. This page looks much better in life than in the photo. I think the flower is hard to see in the photo, but not as much on the actual page.
Here's a close up.
My background is made of watered down acrylic paints, some spray inks and some leaf stamping in black. The black leaves represent what's left of winter and fall, while the fresh bright spring colors are starting to come through.
I stamped the flower and colored it with various markers. I then fussy cut it and added it to my page. To make it stand out a bit, I used a white wax pencil to cover over the bold colors of my background where the flower was going to be placed. Then I added the shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day as well as the pink bunny for spring.
And that's my page!
Have a great day
