The East Wind Challenge - Spring in her step

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at The East wind and this time around it's about spring.  I don't know if you are like me but I'm very much looking forward to spring finally being there!

I have recently discovered mixed media due to my friend Bonnie!  She makes such fabulous art and I wanted to try it out.  This is what I made with the great image Twisted venus Hairnest.  She really reminds me of spring with the little birds coming out to play and nest!

I made the background using some distress paint (Ripe persimmon, peacock, Mowed lawn)  and my fingers!!!  I hadn't done that in forever!  I added a bunch for prima flowers and some bling for the center. I have used my Label 14 from Spellbinder and my large circle from Spellbinder.  I used some Tim Holtz stamps in gathered twig distress ink.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC
I'm entering this little mixed media piece in the following challenges:

  1. Catch the bug blog - Spring into spring
  2. Fairy tale-challenge blog - Flower power
  3. Wags n whiskers rubberstamps - Ready for spring
  4. Rubys rainbow- Anything but a card
This is the 1st post of today!  I will have more today... Hope you will come back for it :)
