Spring comes to TIOT

I have journal page for Try It On Tuesday this time....
...and we have a beautiful collage of images to inspire you this time!
The Design Team have also been inspired by Valerie's photos and you can see them here!
The link to Valerie's blog is here.

I gessoed my page than added some pinks and purples and lots of layers of stencils. The book paper circles were watercolored, doodled onto and written around. Dina Wakley's scribbly bird, also watercolored, is standing on some of my newly gelli printed paper.
I added some Tim Holtz clippings and found the Spring quote stamp in my box - I think it is an old Elusive Images one.
I added a few spatters for good measure - love a bit of spattering!!!

You have just two weeks to enter and we are happy if you combine it with a few other challenges! There are a few rules to check out too! Our challenge closes on 2nd April.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Oh I love your Spring Page Chris!!!! Your journal pages are always so good. I'm still not doing any art... the room is still a shambles and since having the flu I just can't get my energy back :( It will come and things will get back to normal.
Happy T Day!

I do so love that wee birdy, he sits so happy upon your page. Your attention to detail in your background really adds dimension with your doodles and stencil work. Beautiful creation. Thank you for sharing.
