Springtime for TioTs




Springtime is the new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays
Please pop over for all the details and see what we all made, this time we are welcoming Marjik as our Guest Designer.

This is a small canvas that I can honestly say just evolved. I had no idea how it would end up.
After using acrylics and gesso on the base. I did my usual trick of random stamping the base using Archival inks. All the stamps used  are from Paper Artsy.
For the sprouting tree thingy !!  I stuck, scrunched up pieces of paper towel down the side and corner of the canvas. This was coloured using iridescent water colour paints.
I hope that quirky bird isn't thinking to nest in my tree.
All the rest of the shading was water colours and distress ink--Antique linen
The hand is to represent   the tree trunk. I added the words Sprout, grow and bloom here , because Springtime is the season of new growth.
The clock on the pleated  die cut shape, is a reference to how time passes  and things will blossom and grow as the seasons change.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate the comments you leave me.
