Years ago a musical comedy duo ‘Flanders and Swann’ did their version of ‘January brings the snow’. Every time April comes along I cannot help but remember the verse for that month:
April brings sweet spring showers,
On and on for hours and hours!
The rest of the year gets a similar pesimistic treatment. If you want a laugh at the English weather here is a link to a Youtube clip of it:
The theme at the Imagine That! digis by Kriss Creative Playground challenge is Spring. Kris has some great spring images in her shop and as the challenge goes on to the 6th of May you still have time to have a go.
Imagine That! digis by Kris – Piggy Boots/Tulips Planter
Imagine That! digis by Kris – Satin Fabrics Digi Papers
Day Dream Designs – Sunshine and Rain Colour Digi Set (may not still be trading)
stepper card die
white printer card
X-Press It Card
I printed out an A4 sheet of card using a blue paper from the Satin Fabrics set and a sheet using a green Satin Fabrics paper for the back panel, then used the die set to cut the card base.
I used two coloured images from the Sunshine and Rain set (rain cloud and child with umberella) to make up a sheet of paper for the side panels and added the wording then printed it out.
I sized the Piggy Boots image to fit the middle panel and printed out two copies on X-Press It card.
The main image and second copy I coloured with the copics then cut out the front boot and the flower heads to layer up on the base image.
There is a reason why I went for the plain boots and added the top and for the colours I used. My very first pair of adult sized wellies were blue with a yellow top which had a blue string so you could draw in the top part and keep any rain out. They lasted for years and years and I was quite sad when I finally had to replace them because they started to leak. Those wellies must have lasted for a good 20+ years!
Thanks for popping in. Take care.
P.S. I found a picture of the wellies on line listed as vintage!!
