Spring Ladies

Hi everyone.  The temperature is getting a little bit warmer here in my world, but we still have a lot of that white stuff on the ground. But it is melting. And today we should get some rain so that will help too.
So to put a little color in the world I made this page. I colored the dots on a  page in my calendar journal with some spring colors. Then I used one of these TH found relatives.  These 2 ladies look like they are ready for Prom or a wedding or another big spring event. I doodled the flowers on some printed paper and then cut them out and added them to the page.  I cut a quote and added that to the flowers and then finally added the little bird.
There's just  few days left to this month so I want to link up to Rosie's spring challenge Art Journal Journey. Making these spring inspired pages is a way to deal with our not so spring weather.
And I am also linking up to Try It on Tuesday.  The latest challenge is to make art from an inspiration piece which is this gorgeous spring mood board that Valerie over at Bastelmania made.
And for a little pop of color, here's a few more blooms from the Arboretum which I visited almost 2 weeks ago.


Happy Wednesday!
And thanks for visiting.

WOW. I wasn't expecting so much color this morning. This is an eye opener, even with the vintage TH relatives. I adore this and was so pleased to see you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey, too. Thanks for that and also the pops of color from the Arboretum flower show, too. Loving the color, dear Erika.

Such a wonderful spring page! Colouring all those dots must have been such fun and makes for a beautiful background for your happy ladies, pretty flowers and fabulous quote 😁. Let's hope the snow melts away soon and in the meantime we can keep our spirits high with your stunning Arboretum photos - perfect 😉. Enjoy the rest of your week! J 😊 x

You put those both beautiful Ladies on an amazing spring background - terrific is this page and great that Rosie's spring theme at least brought spring into your Art Journal , even though spring didn't arrive yet in your area! Here it's still cold - anyway the Easter bunny has to do the work!
Happy Wednesday and thank you very much for joining AJJ again!

It's gray and rainy here, so your bright colors are cheering up my day. Thx! I'm soooo tired of these gray days.

The sun is shining, it's not snowing, and the temps at mid-40s feel a lot better than temps below zero. Could Spring be on the way? Your page and the flowers from the bulb show are sure giving me Spring fever. Hope you're having a fun day.
