Colours , masks and a new arrival!!

The weather has been gloriously sunny and warm lately and Nature has definitely decided that it  is spring time already.
I decided the same, and filled my house with flowers in pots, vases and crafts.

Tulips in vibrant red , mauve  hyacinths in pots  and candy colours in the kitchen.

A little craft for me : a decoupage mask in warm colours and nostalgic patterns.

 Outside ,a green carpet  stretches  around , interrupted by the yellow of the wild marigolds and the pink and purple  anemones.

A posy in a ceramic vase assembles  all colours together, in a symphony of spring colours.
This week, I was really excited and thrilled  and vey –very happy,  because I organized and taught a workshop at school to decorate carnival masks. The Carnival season started a week ago in our country and parties and parades will take place in many towns and cities.
I have some really talented students at school and I thought they would like the idea to  decorate their masks , using what else ……….. decoupage with paper napkins and also some colourful feathers , glitter , ribbons and lots  of smiles!!!
 We had our workshop last Tuesday at our school’s library and spent two wonderful hours , playing with napkins, acrylic colours, glues and varnishes .
We were all excited and the results are very satisfactory. Each one of the masks has each own unique personality and beauty.
Here, take a look.

We are going to display them all at school  to give some extra , carnival colour to the days ahead.

I will leave you now my dear  readers with the photo of a little, strong and graceful creature that arrived very recently  and already knows how to pose for the camera!!!!

Have a lovely Sunday and hope spring comes your way soon!!!
