Spring came early to Kentucky this year, with week's of beautiful weather in March, a time usually known for wet days, late snows, and high winds. I'm not complaining, mind you. It was wonderful to sit on my deck, soaking up the sun, so early in the year.
There's only one thing that bothers me about spring, and that's the abundance of pastel colors everywhere you go. Pastels are in the clothing aisles (do you know what pastel pink does to skin with yellow undertones?), the home goods area, even in the candy aisles. Since I'm more of a jewel-tone girl, my shopping options in March and April are limited.
Online, you'll see tons of pink, yellow, and lilac scrapbooking and art kits, complete with fluffy bunnies and yellow chicks. Now, I'm not really opposed to fluffy bunnies and chicks. But, they're not really what I want to use on my art pages.
That's why I was delighted to see the new Spring Market kit at TumbleFish Studio. It's a spring kit, alright. And there are bunnies. But it's full of the rich greens of spring; the elements are realistic; and best of all, it has that little bit of good-natured humor that make Marsha's kits so much fun to work with.
And, I did have fun. As soon as I saw this face, I thought "bad egg." In a wonderful bit of synchronicity, there were eggs in the kit, so I went with it.
Everything is from the Spring Market kit, but the wings. They're from the TumbleFish Studio Flying Things kit.
