Spring is in the Air

Hi Everyone!
Spring is in the Air is a lovely theme for a tag!
It seemed so apt  for the time of year, but when I started 
creating my tag in my studio at the top of the house, 
there was a hail storm, and I could hear the hail stones
coming down loudly on the velux windows!
I have enjoyed all your tags the past couple of weeks, but
haven't been able to fit in playing Tag Tuesday myself.
       For my tag I used some hand made Indian paper, and
stencilled a bird and nest, using Inktense pencils. The
stencil is very old:-it is one my mum bought  me when
I was a little girl, and somehow it is still intact!
I made borders with  Spring flowers, and stamped
tulips, adding some washi tape, and a cluster of
cardboard buttons in the corner to finish it off.
Today Spring really is in the air, no hail storms, and 
the birds are singing at the top of their voices!

  6. i'm glad you were inside during the hail storm! your tag is lovely, that paper is fantastic. just tag along whenever you can -- i think it is quite fine if you can only play from time to time. we love to see your art!
