Today is the day that Meteorologists call the first day of Spring, well that just shows that weather men don't always know what they are talking about!!!
My calendar page though, does show hope for a warm Spring eventually! I am entering in Rosie's new theme 'Spring' at Art Journal Journey
My page started with a coat of gesso then some distress crayon scribbling which was blended in with a damp finger.
I used two of AALL and Create sets (44 and 45)designed by Tracy Evans.I bought these at Rowan Tree Crafts in Carnforth at the weekend and this is my first play with them!
The flowers were made by stamping the hearts from set 45.
These were stamped onto white paper and glued together. I added some water colour pencil around the edges to make them pop.
The detail on these stamps is fabulous!
I used some of the leaf flowers upside down as 'vines' to decorate the top.
For me Spring officially starts on 21st March which was my Mum's birthday!
You can see what the weather is like here today
The white in the foreground is the window sill and the covered walkway to the main building
It is so cold today and we are expecting more snow(at the moment the ground is covered and we are seeing odd snowflakes fluttering past the window! I am thinking of our Scottish friends at the moment as I know they are getting far more snow than we are!
Thanks for looking, stay warm! Chris
