This photo was taken by my eldest son. The bright red of the anthuriums was perfect for this challenge.

Lesson of the birds was a colour palette challenge, suggesting a vintage page. I chose to do a college.

Energy … the Energy challenge once again and this time I use the reflection as well to create a page of solar power.

M is for Maya Angelou, one of my favourite poets. She will live forever in her words.

At Christmas the cat was sleeping on the dog’s bed and I decided it would make a great subject for March’s progressive scrap.

I was sure it said Meow

March at the Just Art site

March was still full of blowing and snow and very very cold. What better way to keep warm than to work on digital art. Irish blessing for St. Patrick’s day. I added my recipe for Irish soda bread … yummy

This little pocket page was so much fun. I have had these photos of the bunny and ground hog who came out to graze at the same time and their reaction towards each other was hilarious. Now they have their story.

Who Are You

I is for Ireland, a perfect I word for March. This page was done for the A to Z challenge

I - Ireland

I love these images of Godey’s Ladies fashion plates and when I saw Jilbert Designs challenge this month I fell in love and thought the pages would fit a quilt with the ladies .. I was right.

Godey's Ladies

A reflection challenge this month and I thought of this photo I have of a dawn that was absolutely glorious at our old country place several years ago … love the reflection as it reminds me of frozen, ice covered snow.

Winter dawn

J is for Jazz …. all that jazz. Bob Fosse and Fred Astaire created a beautiful, sparkly era of glitz and music. This page celebrates both.

All that Jazz

Energy Lost was created for the word art challenge. When I saw this photo at the Morgue Files site I just had to turn the word around and use it. This old fellow sure has earned a good retirement. I hope he got it.

Is it spring yet, I am longing for my flower gardens

Not sure what these are but they were my mother’s day present from my youngest son and his wife last year. So pretty.

Is there anything better than lilacs … the perfume, the colour and they are one of the longest lasting spring flowers.

These are apple blossoms from the crab apple tree at the old country house. Those apples made the best apple jelly in the fall.

How pretty are these apple blossoms. They grow on an apple tree beside our little rental house. What a beautiful surprise that first spring.

March Life Book 2016

Late again, so many musts and wants to do makes for a very busy year so far. March Life Book 2016 brought fabulous lessons.

Praise for the present with Mary Beth Shaw was so much fun to create with stencils, brushes, sponges, acrylic and water paints and I could go on. This piece was actually done in February but got missed in the posting.

Roots and Ground, Wings and Light with Tamara Laporte brought us another great face, a face of colour. I love the serene look on this face.

Roots and Ground

I love water colours, they are my favourite paint and this graphite and paint mail box are one of my favourite lessons this year. Angela Kennedy brought us a face but I wanted to do the mailbox, like the one I had at the country house with the wild roses growing around the post.

Simple Things

Layers of love with Rae Missigman was a pleasure to create. So many different layers and neon colours to help make the piece shine. This was a great way to get my fingers dirty.

Layers of Love

Lady of Compassion with Shiloh Sophia was done with acrylics, keeping them transparent to give them a watercolour look. Our lady is a bit abstract and was done in a different technique.
