Chirp and tweet

Another journal page to show you today. I am trying not to add extra materials or  layers  to the rest of my pages in this book, otherwise it most definitely won't shut. So I decided just to add a few stamped images and  colour them using  water colours.  The background as you can see is  random stencilled. Shaded with  a variety of distress inks.
The bird image and quote are from a Dina Wakley set .
I loved the words,  Keep a green bough in your heart
                              and perhaps a singing bird will come.
Spring is in the air around where I live as we have the dawn chorus to wake us each day.
However,  I do wish some one would tell my feathered friends that 5 a.m. is not a good time to wake me up.
I would like to join these challenges

    I know what you mean about the dawn chorus, I think it's even earlier than that around here - if I can't sleep I just know the little birdies will start singing and I won't get back to sleep at all xx
