Mixed Media Monthly Guest part 2

Here I am, back again, with my second project for Mixed Media Monthly in conjunction with DecoArt.
The last time I shared a very colourful little canvas. I turned that canvas around and did something very different on the back. something much more aged, rusty and distressed.
I love doing the back of canvases and using them as shadow frames. I have taken a less obvious approach to the theme this time. the nesting birds are the "April" part of the theme. and as for the showers, I incorporated rust because thats what rain does to metal in the garden. and I added some drips and raindrops in the form of crystals.
Head on over (by clicking HERE) and have a look at the work of the design team and other guests and maybe think about giving this challenge a go...
thanks for stopping by.
