Happy Everything

Hi Everybody!

Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy Weekend, Happy Everything!

For Art Journal Journey, favourite poem or quote, and Moo Mania and More, eggs, I have made another journal page, this time with an Easter Bunny. Not usually my theme, but I found Mrs Bunny in my stash and decided to use her. I gave her a coat of crackle varnish and distressed her a bit, and added some structure paste to the contours of her basket and eggs,  to the flowers on her dress, and to her eyes. The background was made with brushos over wet gesso, with some extra colours added with Gelatos. The birds were drawn with black ink.

We had a lot of clouds again today, and the sun peeped through now and again.

In the evening I watched the Easter Moon rising in the sky:

Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.


  1. Love your Easter bunny on the terrific background, and the Easter moon photos are fantastic! Hugs, Sarah

  6. Deine Hasenfrau hast Du genial inszeniert und der Spruch ist toll dazu!
    Hab sie vorgestern in der Nacht hier gesehen, sie war ganz aus dem Häuschen, weil sie den Korb verloren hatte, glaub ich! Herrlich hast Du den Mond eingefangen! Ich wünsche Dir einen frohen Sonntag liebe Valerie!
    MM&M und AJJ danken von ♥

    1. Na, wenn sie sich nachts bei Dir sich herumgetrieben hat, kein Wunder dass sie so gehetzt aussieht....

  7. Fantastic pictures of the moon and nice to see that the sky was clear enough for you to see them after the heavy cloud in the other photographs

    What a wonderful page with the Easter Bunny and the bright background. Terriffic quote to use as well.

    Have a great day-nothing planned for us at all.

    Love Chrissiexx

  16. That a good quote, made me chuckle. Nice rabbit image for Easter. xox

  17. You are so creative. Your bunny looks great, especially since you Valerie-ized it.

  18. I've really enjoyed all your pages so far for this month's AJJ theme. I am learning so many great poems and quotes from everyone and am truly inspired. Have a blessed holiday.

  19. Nice work with Mrs. Bunny and her shopping. Is that a Valerie-invented quote? - I like it.
    The moon was spectacular here last night too, I didn't think of it as an Easter moon but I like that idea too.

  20. No, I read the quote somewhere, and wrote it down, but forgot to say who wrote it....

  21. Love your bunny piece, Valerie! Happy Easter to you too :)

  22. Love the bright colors in your art today and the message from the Bunny. We had a pleasant Easter here with sunny skies and warmer weather.

  23. Love your cute bunny with egg basket. The photos are fabulous.
    Hugs xx

  24. Mrs Bunny ist perfekt für den Hintergrund. Klasse Fotos sind das wieder einmal :)

  25. This is fab Valerie, a really fun piece, and I love that quote! xx

  26. Oh, the quote is a nice twist! I really like your colours and your use of the vintage bunny!

    We have had a very cloudy Easter Week, and when it wasn't cloudy and finally sunny, it was VERY windy! Ugh!
