Art Journal March


Today looks like spring - the sun is shining and the birds are singing but it is still ice cold . At least it gives the feeling that we are going in the right direction....
I made my March pages using spring colours in the hope that it might give me at least the illusion of spring! The background has been distressed with TH inks, then I sprayed it with water and perfect pearls, which made the colours melt into each other and get a nice sparkle. After heat drying I added the paper squares for the days, using paper from this month's *Scrapbooking*magazine. The title has been stamped with my LaBlanche alpha stamps. Added some random stamping with bunnies, flowers etc to give a spring feeling, and some floral rub-ons for a bit more colour.
I also added 2 journaling frames with March quotes.
It was fun trying out my new stamps, the bunny in the grass and the hedgehog, both from LaBlanche, and I am sure I will be using them a lot for spring and Easter projects.
It was, as always fun, kept me successfully from doing any h*******k or that wicked word I*****g, and it does me good to write a few words each evening to recap on the day and draw some positive conclusions.
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!

  8. You for sure caught the colors of spring. Just beautiful. Colors are my life. As having synesthesia I see colors for names and numbers. Your name makes a beautiful picture in my head too.

  12. I've been up into the night playing with muted green and bright red paper, so your lovely spring colours are like a breathe of fresh air. I love your idea of an art journal, you have some great ideas Valerie. CoB
