I am really enjoying The Art of Spring class with Junelle Jacobsen. I actually sketched the bunny and the jack rabbit. Me. Sketching. Unreal.

Then I took the sketches to the art journal, where I used a lot of acrylic paint. There are many layers of green paints here. The flowers and leaves were water painted and then cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and Tattered Leaves dies. This project was all about the bright colors of spring!

June is a delightful teacher, and I think I can actually learn how to sketch little whimsical characters. Maybe it’s just because I am so ready for spring, but it really was quite fun.

Linking this project to Fussy and Fancy Flowers Challenge.
