AJJ ~ The meaning of... bird song

 Hello everyone, 

I hope you have all had a good weekend? 

Today I have another page for my 
Guest Host theme @ Art Journal Journey.. 

The meaning of ~ Bird song ~ natures alarm clock


Bird song takes me back to childhood sleepovers 
at my Grandparents. The excitement of that first 
morning tweet, no matter the weather I couldn't 
wait to get out into their garden to explore... 

The Robin was an all year round feathered friend..


Created using Tim Holtz and Stamperia stencils the little bird 
has been transformed into a Robin especially for the Season with 
die cut Holiday green ferns and snow white gesso splatters.. 

Really enjoying seeing your 
The meaning of creations 

Stay safe & creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

Hello again Tracy, just read your comment on my own blog and appreciate your kind works. Like you I was very unsure about the whole video thing, but actually the hardest part was getting the camera set up in the right place and it took several dummy runs and still not perfected.

The little Robin looks so happy amidst the beautiful greenery you have created on your wonderful page. I love how these little birds dart in and out of the garden, we have a gorgeous Blackbird who visits and serenades us each morning - at least when it is not raining! Hugs, Anne xx

I love to listen to birdsong and have been known to get up and open the windows in the Summer just to listen! Certain birds have such distinctive songs they are all worth a listen but the Robin does seem to sing the loudest and has one of the prettiest songs! I really love this Tracey - the background, the frosty branch and the Robin singing his heart out, hugs, Chrisx

Hope you and your loved ones are all safe and well!
Have a safe and wonderful advent season!

What a fabulous page Tracey. I am with you about birds. I get excited come spring when they start to sing and the get so loud they wake me up. I love your robin (I believe I am right). Your variety are much cuter than ours. You also can draw a bird WAY better than me. I don't know why they are so difficult to get the proportions right? I am glad you shared this page at AJJ but also linked up to Try It on Tuesday. Much appreciated. Hugs-Erika

What wonderful memories for you Tracey x. A beautiful page and the most adorable Winter scene x. The robin looks so content on his holiday green ferns and what a beautiful sentiment too x.
I don't want to spoil the mood but....We have seagulls waking us up, which for the most part is not as pleasant!!! x.

I love seeing your adorable robin that looks NOTHING like those we have in America. Yours is so sweet and I would LOVE to hear the birdsong. Sadly most of the birds have flown south to warmer climes for the winter. I adore how you created the background and the ferns with their bits of snow. This is truly a beautiful entry and quite inspiring for your theme at Art Journal Journey. Simply STUNNING.

Tracey your project is absolutely gorgeous and so heart warming. You have really brought that little robin to life!

Shoshi said...

What a beautiful page, Tracey, and I absolutely love the description of birdsong as being "nature's alarm clock." How true. The sentiment is beautiful too - from my favourite hymn "O Lord my God" - "Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee, How great Thou art!" I shall think of that next time I hear the morning birdsong. The whole project just lifted my spirit!

What a beautiful page Tracy, I thought it was a commercial card (hope that is not insulting) as it is so perfectly done. I love your robin and the memories it evokes for you and that lettering is pure poetry.

A fabulous page Tracey and your little Robin looks so happy sitting on his wintry branch and I must admit there's noting nicer than birdsong, so uplifting.
Thanks for sharing this at Try it on Tuesday.
