Hello everyone and welcome to this month's wrap up.  I'm Candy Colwell, your creative cohort for this fun adventure into your imagination called "Triple Trouble" where I challenged you to take three completely unrelated elements and combine them into a piece of art.

The three elements were corrugated paper, lace and metal.  I have to say that everyone here at Creative Carte Blanche was completely blown away with EVERYONE'S art, including the samples presented by each of my Creative Carte Blanche cohorts.

Did you guys notice ALL of the different interpretations of this theme?  I never cease to be amazed by that because I truly believe that people create from their hearts and their imagination.  So, THANK each and every one of you for taking the time to share your wonderful art with everyone here!

Last but not least, it's my turn to share my interpretation of this theme with you.  My inspiration came from nature.  I am so loving the warmer temperatures and the rebirth of the flowers and trees after a long winter's nap.  The birds are returning and their sweet songs fill the air.  So ...

I used corrugated papers, laces and metal to create this sweet vintage scene sharing my joy of spring.  This piece has so much more dimension than this photograph shows. 

So hop on over to MY BLOG, grab a cup of hot tea or coffee, open a window and let the sounds of Spring fill the room as I share the complete pictorial tutorial with you.

Next month, Annette Green will be offering up a new art adventure for all of us!  I can't wait to see what she's conjured up in that creative brain of hers!  Stay tuned ...
