No, It Isn't Tuesday

I know it is Friday and I may be a few days off, but I have a journal page to link up to Try It On Tuesday.
The theme for this fortnight is the feeling evoked from this beautiful spring mood board.
My piece is made on some water color paper that I first cleaned off  a painty stencil on. Then I used both a fern and leaf and then this interesting shaped mask to make the background. I added a splash of color with my stamped and painted flowers, and then I added the stamped quote.
And since it is Friday,I am also linking up to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting, and I recommend you stop by both sites to check out the excellent art.
I also finished my bunny painting I showed you last week. No, it is not crooked, just my photo angle, but here it is on part of my living room mantle.

So what excitement is going on with you this weekend? The weather folks say we're in for some sunny and warmer weather here in New Hampshire, and I am hoping to get to work out in the gardens. :) I could do that all weekend right now, but if not, I have a few other ideas. Having those ideas and an open weekend is making me excited about the possibilities. Even if I may not end up doing anything at all, it is the weekend.
Or almost.
Hope yours is wonderful.
As as always, thanks for visiting.

Love your new art pieces. The bunnies have turned out really well.
I also had a peep at the previous post to see your new couch. Beautiful. I hope it wears as well as they told you. A good choice certainly.
Thank you for visiting mine and have a great week,
Lisca

gorgeous spring painting and I love those hopping bunnies! Yes, it should be warm and beautiful here too so there will be some outdoor work like cleaning up branches etc. and tilling the garden. Finally true spring!

You have certainly planted some lovely seeds of happiness with that TioT entry. It's a genuine beauty.

I am in AWE of your mantel and the bunny painting. I adore the vignette and the way the giraffe is looking up at the bunnies. Truly awesome!!!

Sweet Spring happiness, looks like garden time is meant to be with our weather. Xox

Wow! Those colors are just setting off my happy buttons this morning! And yes, a gorgeous weekend here in Michigan -- already warmish and not even noon. My weekend started with a gala event, today will include a visit from old friends and another event and maybe a play tomorrow -- or maybe not (who wants to be inside!).

What I really want to do is keep creating. I didn't link to anything but posted a bunch of pages from the art journal over at the Gypsy -- hadn't done that in eons! And now I'm on a roll! Seeing your wonderful piece only inspires me more.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Love your joyful and happy post and beautiful artwork - I'm having to avoid painting still because of my carpel tunnel at present and really missing that.
Hope you've had a great weekend and managed to do all you wanted in the garden.

Your flowers painting is really lovely, but my heart is still with these fabulous bunnies, what a great happy painting full of bunny life to have in your room.
