Rain, Rain GO AWAY!

Okay, it's getting ridiculous around here... not only have we had a long, cold, snowy winter (we even win the snowiest city in the country!), but now it's the wettest spring on record here.  We have had over 9 inches of rain in 20 days!  I'm so sick of rain!  We even have ducks in our yard!  Yep, a pair of mallards ended up on our lawn one morning.

To stay with this rainy theme, I thought some "rainy" artwork might be appropriate.
 Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker line "It's Raining, It's Pouring" is the perfect spring paper line!  I love the little umbrellas and the colors in this line!!!  Here I used it for my current Scrap That Baby prompt.

I had fun playing with Faber-Castell DMC Gelatos on this paper umbrella.  I wanted it to look like dripping rain and colored and added Prima flowers and bling.  April Showers bring May Flowers!  

As a final parting project... I made some flowers using Nikki's "Beatrice" line. So, even though I can't be outside enjoying the real flowers, I have some colorful paper ones to look at!  I hope the sun shows itself soon (and stays around)!!
