Springtime at TIOT!

Hi everyone! We are well into Spring now and have had some lovely days! Our new theme at Try It On Tuesday is 'Springtime'. The Design Team have been enjoying all aspects of Spring so please do take a look here.

 I have made another journal page.
I did some stencilling with greens, yellows and pinks onto a white background to give a fresh feel to the page. I added some random biz zag stamping for a little extra focus.
I stamped some Paper Artsy Lin Brown leaves(over-stamped with text)  and some Tracy Scott flowers using Oxide inks and fussy cut them. Next I stamped the Dina Wakley bird and some mottled eggs using stamps that are no longer available. I wanted to keep the yellow to the front too so used some inky paper to cut out some circles and doodled on to them!
Then it was just a small matter of layering everything up.....I arranged and re-arranged these quite a few times until I was happy!!

I do hope you will join us with your Springtime creations!

I'm putting off dealing with a mountain of washing now we are back from Paris - there will be photos are my TSFT post later!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wonderful page, Chris - full of life and greens and all things new! So glad you got to be in Paris just before ND burned down...that will be a good memory for you. I'm sure you had a wonderful time there...Paris is so beautiful at any time of the year. Leave the washing until the weather is more stable, lol - it's going to rain later here, so maybe the same for you?
