Thinking of Spring

is the new theme for March chosen for us  for us by Rosie
 who is hosting this month  at 

This is a photo of my page in its early stages
A sprayed ink background with a country scene torn from an old calendar.
I really have had to use my imagination for spring these past days.  We have deep snow the temperatures are in the minus numbers and the wind is making it even colder.
Anyway, I chose a scene that shows the trees in lovely shades of green and a peaceful river, not like the snow  storm that is blowing outside my window.
I added a torn napkin of some spring flowers and some embossing to add a little texture.
The words were computer generated.

I will also go and join in at 
for the theme over there......Think of Spring.

Thank you for calling in to see me today
 and if it is snowing where you are stay safe and warm.


  1. Your page is absolutely wonderful, and I can smell the Spring.

    Thank you for joining us at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY, and also thank you for sharing it at MOO MANIA & MORE

  2. You are such a pro to bring different things together and let them look so homogeneous ! The textures, layers and great colours together make a masterpiece again and I just can say THANK you so much for linking so quickly to the new theme Yvonne! Same bad weather here--- even though they said from today on it should get even more snow again. But I have started my house spring cleaning now - I am sure this will bring us spring!! And if not, at least my house looks neat and tidy!
    Happy rest of the day-- stay warm and take good care of you!

  3. A lovely page Yvonne, full of warmth and spring colours. Like you we have a 'white' landscape and swirling snow outside.
    Stay safe and warm.

  4. What a gorgeous page, love the images and the texture in the background. It's still freezing here, too. Hugs, Valerie

  5. You have certainly put winter in your rear view mirror when it comes to this beautiful spring inspired page. Regardless of the temps and weather outside, your beautful journal page has us all thinking spring. I love the spraying, the texture, and the background in general. It is a wonderful first entry for us at Art Journal Journey, dear Yvonne.

  6. Beautiful journal page. I love the collage, texture and colors!! Very much Spring!!

  7. No sign of Spring here - currently just 2 feet snowdrifts! Great page as always Yvonne x

  8. I'm loving your spring page! The embossing paste blossoms look so amazing framing the peace and tranquility of the river setting you added - beauiful 😁. The weather is really cold isn't it and it looks like you have way more snow than we have here - brrrr! Stay warm and wishing you a Happy March! J 😊 x

  9. Wow, your journal page ist very beautiful. Love the image and the texture....wonderful!

  10. I like the start and then seeing the finish. The flowers from the napkin really add to the scene. It all looks so pretty and mild, not like our present weather.

  11. Spring is coming, spring is coming....if we say it often enough do you think it will happen soon? This spread certainly makes it look possible:-)

  12. A beautiful springtime page, we can dream of warmer days and green leafy trees to help us through the wintry weather we are having at present. We have even got snow down here in Dorset today, which is really quite rare.

  13. I am definitely feeling spring when I look at your page. Love the pretty background. I am ready for SPring!

  14. Pretty spring page Yvonne. I like that pretty bridge. Another napkin? And sorry to hear about your cold and snow. When March is more like January it is always a little bit of a downer. Hope it warms up and goes away soon. Hugs-Erika
