Spring is in the air - somewhere surely

I know Spring will eventually get here, well, unless it just jumps into summer without it. Most of my art these days seems to be Spring-y.

In my Yahoo group  ATCFUN  we have a weekly journal challenge. Right now we are working through the alphabet. We're on letter E. The challenge - a hidden envelope with something E in it. I had some cute scrapbook paper with these critters on it so naturally a zoo came to mind and maybe because its a zoo around my house. My envelope didn't hide very well but I really liked the page so I used it. Maybe I will make another that can hide better later but for now this is it.

The envelope is not so glaringly in your face really. I blame the scanner!

Can you believe an elephant was hiding in that little envelope!
I did a couple of ATC's just because. This one is from one of my drawings. I like the little bird so much I made a stencil of it. It came out pretty well. I had to do a little touch-up with a brush but I'm happy with it.

This is just weeds. I know not many people like weeds but I do. Most of the ones that bloom anyway. These are just made-up ones but I like them. I used Twinkling H2O's on the weeds. They are wonderful! You can't see the shimmer in the scan but they do shimmer.

This last is a journal page that just sort of emerged. I wasn't really happy with it but finally finished it after several days. I like it better now. I could see some big black words on it but couldn't read them. Finally just gave up, maybe they weren't meant to be read!

 Thanks for looking.


  1. I like that the biggest animal gets to play in the tree house and I love your hanging heart page.

  2. I love the last drawing with the bird house! really nice:)
    The bird ATC is great as well.

  3. Terri, Oh my I love the bird house and the heart I would love to have this in my back yard I love the way you draw.. you go girl!!!

    I love your Art..... MaryRedford

  4. What a great idea to hide the elephant in the tree! :) I love it! And your journal page is gorgeous, just like the bird and "weeds" ATC.
    We have an insane situation here with snow and flowers at the same time. I really hope that the Spring will eventually win the battle. :)

  5. You do the cutest birds! I'm going to have to try coping yours to see if I can get a decent bird in my journal.
