Altered book ...bring May Flowers

Did a spot of painting and made this page in my Altered Book to follow on from the previous "April Showers..." page. We have such a Camellia, Wisteria and Bluebells in our garden right now, so I thought it was just the right time to put these in my book. I added glitter and glossy accents to the pages along with a bit of stamping. At least it brightened up a dull day.

Somebody has been very busy with their paintbush! I really like this BJ.I have all these plants too but my wisteria never flowers - strange!I like your composition which leaves space for whatever you decide to add. Glad the glossy accents gets a look in!!!

Doing a little bit of painting has been fun, hasn't it? I think it's one of the things about our AB books that I have enjoyed the most! Your pages look great, I wish I had a wisteria plant but there isn't a place that can support it around here! I would love to see a picture of your garden too! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

No BJ, I have NOT seen these two lessons. I have missed SO much because I've been offline for nearly two weeks, only to pop in every few days. Thanks for pointing me to these two posts, because I am really in LOVE with the May flowers. You paint SO WELL. You will have NO trouble with this next lesson, that's for sure.

Wonderful page BJ, great inspiration from your garden you lucky thing. Defo a cheer up from all this miserable gloomy weather we've been having. Thanks for sharing. Dawn.

I really like how you framed the words with the beautiful painted flowers! So colorful and sweet and just what I needed on this rainy day!

I really like how you have integrated the 2 pages into one cohesive image. I struggle with that part of AB - melding 2 sides of the page.
