March did not get off to a good start here, with icy temperatures, deep-frozen nights, slippery paths and a load of snow which came down in the night from Thursday to Friday. But today it seems to be a little milder, so I'm hoping that the weather prophets are right and that spring will soon be here to stay. At least it's green outside again today. And green is also the optional colour for our new theme at More Mixed Media, which always begins on the 5th of the month. All mixed media formats are welcome, and the green is optional. I made an A3 mixed media page. The background was brayered with a mix of gesso, pink and green and stamped into while wet with a flourish stamp. The dots were added using a Seth Apter stencil to sponge the colours through. The butterflies and magnolias were part of a stencil applied with acrylic medium. I sewed the edges with green thread using the machine, and then hand-sewed the green net to the butterflies. The quote was computer generated, and is the beautiful Irish blessing. Some self-adhesive lace from the discount shop finished it off. I am also linking to Simon Monday Challenge, in the garden, and Simon Wednesday challenge, anything goes.
Today we had a beautiful sunrise again, the little clouds just added to the charm:
But yesterday was a different kettle of fish - I woke up to this:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
