It's spring, spring, spring

Hi Everybody!

Just a short post this time, today ran away too quickly!

This is  a  spread in my new journal, with a 'spring' theme. This was not originally intended for a challenge, but it reminded me of the 'Spring, spring, spring' song in the film 'Seven brides for seven brothers', which was shown back in 1954. I made a mixed media piece with my two spring chickens who have evidently fallen totally  in love with each other.




Linking to Art Journal Journey, for the record.


And some photos of today's breathtaking sunrise:

  6. Amazing photographs yet again Valerie such wonderful colours.

    The pages are brilliant with wonderful bird images and backgrounds.

    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one of my favourite films ever and I have a DVD of it to watch when I need an emotional fix. It has everything in it and I never tire of watching it.Not sure I can fit it in today as there is sport to watch--such a busy life I lead lol.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  12. Those hand drawn and painted birds are SO very much cuter than the crazy birds rubber stamps out there. I love these and the little birds look like they are just right for each other.

    Gorgeous sunrise. You might have noticed how late I am getting here. I fell asleep while uploading today's post. Have a wonderful rest of Saturday.

  15. Now I am singing - birds are popping up all over ... Love your birds - pretend and for real!
    Well you know I am smiling and dancing all over. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. One of my all time favorite movies and boy did I ever fall in love with Russ Tamblyn. Of course I had to spend lots more time watching videos from the movie. My favorite video was "Barn Raising Dance". No wonder so many kids have a hard time today - they didn't grow up with wonderful and happy musicals.

  19. Awww, what sweet birdies! I love them! Gorgeous photos too.

  20. Breathtaking is right; the sunrise you captured this morning is outstanding and so are the birds, especially the female all decked out in her finest. Love makes the world go round and the birds bring joy to so many of us. (Outside for me; no bird in the house.)

    Hugs,

  25. Oh, was für eine tolle Doppelseite, ich bin hin und weg. Wunderschön. Auch die Fotos vom Sonnenaufgang begeistern mich :)
    Heute bin ich mal wieder am PC, habe noch etwas Zeit und kann somit einen lieben Gruß hier lassen. Am Tablet funktioniert das nicht wirklich....

  30. Super love your love-birds as you might expect, it is just up my colourful birdie street.
    Isn't it amazing that now we can watch moving pictures and songs, new and very old, as we wish, instead of queuing to get a seat at the Cinema (and go in half way through the film if that was when the seats became free).

  31. I enjoyed watching the scene from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, a movie I saw so many years ago. Thank you for sharing this and the other beautiful photos.
