Hello Crafty pals, I am very excited to publish my 50th post today. I thank all my fellow bloggers who have encouraged me by giving their genuine comments and inspired me to create beautiful craft projects. Today am posting another mixed media layout made on the theme "Spring. " 

I started off with Artist's loft canvas board ( not canvas) and covered it with crushed pieces of white tissue paper. Since i did'nt have gesso , I mixed white acrylics and craftsmart glue and used as a primer. The result was good ( though you won't get the finish similar to gesso). 

Once it is dried I used alcohol inks of various colours to make the background.

The clouds, tree branch , tag and butterflies are handcut from cardboard and painted using acrylics.

The bird is made out of clay and coloured using acrylics. 

The daisy flowers are handmade . Finally applied a coat of varnish to get the glossy look. 

By seeing the blooming trees , singing birds and creeping sunshine one gets the feeling of hope. So pasted the sentiment " Spring Bring Hope".
