March here is being her normal fickle self, so one day it is 70 degrees F (21 degrees C) and then 2 days later we are getting more snow. Yesterday we were predicted to get some snow. Just a dusting those weather people said. Instead, I need to shovel off the deck this morning.
I have some art to share today. First I have a quick page that I made and that I am linking up to Valerie's challenge at Art Journal Journey. If I can't have real spring, I am happy to have a spring challenge to make pages for.
My page started with the spiral word phrases. Some of the spirals say believe, some say dream and some say imagine. Theses stamps are 3 sides of a cube set that is one of my oldest rubber stamps. I've been doing a bit of organizing and cleaning (I will save most of that project for when I reassemble my room), and in the process I came across this cube I haven't used in years. I remember buying it on a visit to New York City back around 2002 at the Ink Pad stamp store.
I'm not sure if this cube is one I will end up keeping when I reassemble the room. I like the spiral words, but they aren't the easiest to use. They do however make good butterfly trails, so I used some Art By Marlene punch out butterflies. After I tried them out on the page, but before I glued them down, I took a big Chinese calligraphy brush (which I love using to spread watercolor paint with, but forget calligraphy with my terrible penmanship) and used some spring colored watercolors to make the circles.
I then glued down the butterflies, did a bit of white pen doodling on them and used some stickers to create to quote.
I also have a tag for Michele's flower or plant challenge at Tag Tuesday.
The background is made by scraping some left over paint over my tag. I added some stamping and some scrap die cut flowers. The deer was also a leftover die cut in my scrap box, and then I also added some white paper flowers, with a bit of sparkle to make their centers. To finish it off I added some blue sequins as well as the sticker quote.
I'm having a fairly quiet week doing some spring cleaning and making lots of art, so there's not much else to share.
I hope you enjoyed my art today, and you are having a great week so far.
Thanks again for visiting.
