Amongst the Flowers

They sat happily amongst the flowers, enjoying the sweet scent of the day!
I hope you too can stop a while and enjoy a quiet moment in  the day, to gaze, dream and simply be!

Let The Sunshine In

I'm Linking these journal pages to Art Journal Journey where the theme is "For the Record, Songs that Inspire."
With the first bright sunny Spring days I had that old Hair song "Let the Sunshine In" in my mind when playing with these pages and so filled them with sunny light!
I hope the sun is shining your way, or will do soon!

Also sharing some collage fun, tearing out pieces of old magazine is a thing I love to do, bits of this and that, that have meaning or just appeal to the eye.

I have a little moon diary I keep notes in and also love to add little bits of torn magazines to decorate the pages when I no longer need to read the notes taken for those days.

La Vie en Rose

I made this for Art Journal Journey, with words that inspire, Edith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose." 
A classic for sure!
Wishing you all a beautiful "Vie en Rose!"

Below are a couple of shots taken up on our holidays last week

I love this mansion below, such a totally enchanting place, we had a great time!

 When we got home the view from our window was all green after the Winter browns, in just the week we had been away the forest turned green, such a welcome home!

The Green Circus

Deep in the woods the Green Circus Folk play, juggling leaves in the wind, having fun and practising for their special show.
I love to find them and have a peek and thought I'd share a little of their green magic with you!

The trees outside have their first signs of green budding, It's wonderful how the green grows at this time of year, I feel my own green energy too slowly budding.

I won't be around next week, as we're off to the mountains for a family holiday. The weather is very unstable and we're probably going to be in for many rainy days, still we'll find the beauty in that too, time for splashing around and watching the world turn green!

In The Woods

Here's wishing everyone a Happy Spring/Easter week-end. These are some collage cards I made with little flowers I painted inspired by the beautiful wild flowers you can come upon in the woods at this time of year.

The trees are still very bare, awaiting their first buds.

Lulu playing happily in her favourite woods.

There are many beautiful wild flowers in the bottom field here below, we love to go and sit down here on a sunny afternoon.

Blooming In the Wind

If you go down to the woods one bright sunny day, the flowers may be blooming and blowing gently in the wind. I hope the light is golden and you catch the scent of the forest, enjoying and lingering in the beauty all around while listening to the sounds of the enchanted woods.

Lost in the Woods

This piece is linked to Art Journal Journey, the theme there this month is "If You Go Down To The Woods."
It's a collage of bits and pieces. A crowded woods that's a bit mixed up, you could get lost in here quite easily so be careful if you choose to have a wander!
