Wishing for spring wreath

My wish...SPRING!
Oh spring, spring...where for art thou spring?

I created something springy and crafty last week, but it really didn't seem to have any effect on Mother Nature, so I'm trying again. This time, I'm making a wreath to grace the door and scare away the winter spirits.  And I'm using ADORABLE spring shapes from Unique Laser Designs!

First, I took a straw wreath and wrapped and wrapped it with this pastel variegated yarn.
Next, I took some canvas flower shapes from Linnie Blooms,  I colored them with gelatos (pink and orange), and spritzed with water so I could spread the color with my fingers.  On some of the flowers I added LOTS of color, some just a bit.  Some are more orange, some are more pink. A flowery hodge-podge!
Next, it's painting time!  I painted these ADORABLE Easter shapes and letters from Unique Laser Designs.

I "marble-ized" the solid egg and bunny by blending gelatos over the dried acrylic paint and then splattered the letters with pink paint after covering them with a few thin coats of Distress Stain Picket Fence.

This is my ode to spring.  Mother Nature are you listening this time?

I couldn't stop playing with these adorable shapes, so I'm tucking in a few more ideas if you get a few minutes to play.
