Spring Parade / Pääsiäisterveiset!

 Oh glorious spring! It has been a first truly spring day today - abundant sunshine and mild, fragrant air. I took a walk in the forest and admired the little mounds of violets that came through the brown leaves.
I felt like doing something equally light and carefree, a tribute to spring.


Oli ihana aurinkoinen päivä, metsästä löytyi orvokkimättäitä viimevuotisten lehtien keskeltä. Piti tehdä jotain herkkää.  Pohjana käytin jälleen kerran aluspapereita, joihin oli tarttunut vähän kaikkea. Suojaan pöytäni jos jonkinlaisella paperilla, joka muuten menisi roskiin. Niin niihin tulee joskus tekstiäkin. (Muistaakseni tämä kertoo naisten jalkapallosta...)

I started with the papers I had been using for protecting my desk from my mixed media attempts. They had it all: text on the background, some heavy texture stenciling and lovely spring colors. I deepened the colors and stamped them with swirls.


 I though of things that are new in spring. Babies are new, brand new...
