TioT - The Call Of Spring

Hello Everyone! Try it on Tuesday have a new mood board and challenge theme 'The Call Of Spring'. Well I wish Spring would hurry up and arrive! Thankfully the last lot of snow melted away this morning. Here's my journal page encouraging Spring to come. I used collage and stencils, and added some marks. I'm also entering this page in Rosie's Spring Challenge at Art Journal Journey.

Also, I'd like to share today's Gelli Plate adventures for Birgit's Day 20 challenge, 'Black & Blue'. I love this combination!

Here's a lovely ghost print I picked up too...

Here's wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday,

  10. Spring definitely will be arriving soon, if only in your art journal. This certainly turned the dull weather into dynamic colors. Most impressive art. So glad you linked it to Art Journal Journey, too.

    WOW, these gelli prints are incredible. I really like how you created some very useful prints that can be used as backgrounds. LOVELY, Alison, truly lovely.
