Hi everyone! It'a cold wet day here and I am thinking warm thoughts! I have some flowers on my balcony windowsill that are the first thing I see every day when I open my curtains. The vase of flowers that I bought last week are lasting quite well and I have a Christmas cactus that seems to be trying to race ahead!
I'm sure that last time this flowered the flowers were all the same colour! The windows aren't dirty by the way - they steam up when I have the door open!
My page for AJJ was prompted by finding the image of the lady wrapped up to keep warm even though she is clearly indoors!
I wanted to give her the same feeling I get when I see my flowers!
I used some torn mop up paper towel as a start to my page. The scraps were all from the same little scrap bag I picked up! One of the pieces has some stencilling on it and I added some stencilled circles too, which I drew onto with a white pen. Just by chance the little Lavinia circle stamp was out too - on it's way onto another project! I had a choice of a flower or the bee and as you can see I chose the bee as my sign of Spring coming! I added some text stamping along with a date stamp and some spatters to finish it!
I can't believe how quickly this month has gone - I still have loads of ideas for my '101 Ways to Keep Warm' theme - just not enough hours in the day!!
