April Showers Bring May Flowers

It is April and with it comes this month’s Happy Homemaker Tag Along.  March madness has passed and it was full of adventures I am in the process of writing about it. Yet, April full of promise of  new birth and a renewing spirit shines.  Living in Tomball Texas (Houston area) we have two seasons each year hot and hotter, we don’t really get to see the beauty of changing season like my friends to the North and East, but  when a nice cool front comes in and the humidity drops a beautiful spring day can make me smile.  Texas has being lacking in rain so the Bluebonnets have been dismissal so to help ring in April in style. With her parasol to reflect the sun she also can shield the rain. The women in my banner is my grandmother this photo was taken at a park in Louisiana around 1923.  Hope all have a beautiful Spring. 

I begin with  my picture
I use Prismacolor to color

I used this stamp to add texture

My stash of ephemera and embellishments

I used glitter this time man that was messy

Brightness is defined on this
