The Winds of Change

The weather had been turbulent up until Tuesday this week.  The wind was forceful and the clouds sped across the sky.  The wind took my breath away as I fought to walk against it.  The weather was angry it was as though it wanted a final showdown before letting the new season roll in.  I think the winds swept away the remnants of winter and I now feel ready to welcome in the springtime.

 My renewed energy got me stamping with my new fairy stamps. 

 It is very relaxing to watercolour them in.

I have been using my scene-it stamps too and making the scenery very springlike!

You're so patient to that beautiful colouring on your stamps. I just rush everything and make a mess!
Glad to see the back of the wind here too!

I love the photo at the top of this post!
You make the stamping look so easy, I would spoil them! The scenery looks almost Italian too, making me think of long hot summers!

I love that top photo. Looks like rosehips. Beautiful against that sky.

The fairies are so cute. Just the thing to welcome spring. And you always do such a lovely job with those scenery stamps.

Your photos are beautifully atmospheric, capturing the recent weather so well. And aren't rubber stamps wonderful things to play with?? It's so lovely to see what you can create with them. Love your little pastoral scene, it has a nostalgic feel. Helen x

Love your top photo. The wind was very strong wasn't it but it is a lot warmer now and I can see signs of spring and feel it in the air:)
