Well spring has certainly been in the air since I returned from Hong Kong...we have had the most beautiful, sunshiny weather! I must have felt the influence when I collaged this little notebook for a friend in one of my Yahoo groups for our monthly swap. And, being spring it just had to have some birdies and some sort of botanical theme, thus the magnolia buds (paper napkins, love the transparency of them when collaged over papers). I thought Ruth might be able to use this little notebook to record some of her favourite quotes for her art. Below is a close up shot I took.... not the best sorry, little blurry, but still thought I would share.
I was lucky enough to receive my monthly exchange from Debbi Baker... a beautiful handmade journal, also featuring a bird (Spring is certainly in the air!). Unfortunately I havent taken a photo of the journal as yet, but will do so soon and post the pic for you all to see.
I also received a beautiful art doll from the gorgeous Sesga and lots of other goodies and a wonderful surprise from Suze at the Pink Crayon Studio.... plus a whole new stash of fabrics and beads from Dot. I am sure you might like to see my new stash of arty presents so I will take some pics in the next day or two and post for all to see.
I have been very busy catching up with friends, catching up on washing and housework since I got home, so not a lot of art been happening. Back to work tomorrow so things will get back to normal soon.
Hope you're enjoying some Spring Sunshine.
