Ambrosia Salad

The April Recipe at the Paper Mixing Bowl is for Ambrosia Salad.  Think of whipped fluffy goodness.


The recipe called for palest pink, peach and yellow, with a whipped topping (gesso). I'm afraid that I ignored the April showers that called for "droplets," such as glossy accents.  The robins just came back and as I was putting this together, the poor robin was getting iced and snowed on in real life, so I just couldn't give my robin a hard time.  Oops, I missed musical elements also!  I did manage some signs of spring with the birds, fresh greenery and a large butterfly that I sewed together.  I gave the bird some nesting material with a few torn strips of paper.  I added masking by mixing modeling paste and acrylic paint and used that mixture with a Hobby Lobby wall stencil.  My journaling reads: Spring has arrived when I see the first robin.  Except that's not true this year!
