Spring is the Theme!

Well Spring fever is in the air so it is no surprise that the Spring theme won in the poll, but I have been thinking about it and Spring can be a lot of different things. I am thinking we should narrow it a bit more before I start sketching. Here's what I think about when I think of spring:

flowers
rain
renewal
daffodils
robins (birds)
green
fresh


Comment below with some words about Spring that will inspire me while I sketch. Anyone who comments will be added to the drawing for the finished ACEO. If you haven't been following along, check this post for the details of this project and the giveaway. Here is some inspiring Spring items I found on Etsy :

When I think of spring, I think of soft and muted colors. Misty rain, pussy-willows, robin's eggs, new green grass. Pastel colors and gentle themes.

Here are some of the words that popped into my head:

buds, sprouts, leaves, flowers, honeysuckle, sweet smells, strawberries, chicks, eggs, easter eggs, birds, hummingbirds, warmth, sun, wind, storms

I'm enjoying reading about this project -- keep up the good work!

Some of these make sense together, others don't . . . as is often the case: jelly beans, tourmaline, spring showers, easter, daffodils, iris, Monet, Seurat's Sunday in the Park, dust (you have to live in southern NM/west TX to understand), allergies, birth/death, soft, supple, fresh. ;)

Thanks! I am flattered you included my piece! My word would be "sprout."
May your good ideas flow!

Puddles, crocus, growth, frogs (one of the first signs of spring where I grew up was starting to hear the frogs at night), runoff.

Definitely green! I brings a few different interpretations to my mind. Since I like texture combining greens and textures sounds like something that could be explored. Maybe I will. ☺
