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!

Punky Scraps 61 April

Punky Scraps says it's springy time.  The directions for this month:
As it´s Easter time - I would like you to use as much yellow as you can + some feathers or other Eastery stuff.
I had to use yellow!  It's not my favorite color, I have to admit to you.  It's one of my least favorite colors.  I had to put in some blue to go with my yellow.  The photo is from 2005, taken at the Keukenhof in the Netherlands.  We had had a wonderful warm week of spring, and then it was so chilly on our trip.  It's a good thing that Germany taught us to take raincoats and umbrellas on every trip!
