Hi everyone. April has flown by, hasn't it? Today is the last day of Eileen's Inspired By challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I want to say a "BIG thanks" to Chris for helping me to host this month in Eileen's memory.
I'm sure Eileen would have enjoyed all the fantastic pieces everyone has linked up. I've missed her comments and her inspiration. Hopefully we've remembered her in a good way.
Thanks to all of you who shared art with us in memory of our dear blog friend.
My final page for this month is inspired by nature. At this time of year there are so many wonderful sounds in nature, from birds singing, spring peeper frogs chirping, and even the squirrels still running over the dead leaves still laying on the forest floor.
I used a lot of layering with paint and tissue paper to create my background. I also added a bit of stitching at the bottom of the page to give the page a bit of texture. The owl and her lady are stamped on acetate, colored and fussy cut. The 3 flying birds are stamped directly on the page and painted. I'm not sure if you can read the quotes but they say my spirit is...listening to the sounds of the forest.
And if you listen hard enough, you can hear even more voices of nature besides the loud ones that I've mentioned.
It's been a fun month of art, the joy of spring arriving for most of us, and also there's been so much great inspiration in Eileen's memory.
Happy start to your weekend.
