Spring Journal Page

Hello Everyone and thank you for your visit. I am slowly getting my brain back into crafting mode after not doing any for almost a week. Today we will be out, so no crafting at all and I won't be here at the weekend so I will have to up my game I guess.

At Art Journal Journey the theme this month is favourite poem or quote and at Moo Mania and More they have the theme Feelings of Spring.


For this page background I used a piece of glass and dabbed on some emulsion paint then sprayed water here and there. Then I press the thick paper onto the glass to make the background. The paper was a nice cream colour so everything matched ok. I loved the 'poem' that I found online and the pansies were cut from a plant catalogue. Vic gets loads of them through the post and I usually keep them as the pictures are so beautiful.

  8. Beautiful piece you created with those lovely and always irresistible pansies.
    I came home with several pots of violas the other day that I didn't even know I needed ;-)
    Your poem is just perfect too for this special time of year.

  18. I always find pansies a little blowsy - they're so bold and brazen in their colours and flash petal layers... and you've captured that perfectly here! Love the texture effect background too.
