More things with wings

Hi Everybody!

We had a cold and misty day here, good weather for staying home, reading and crafting.

For Art Journal Journey, things with wings,  I have another journal page. The background was painted with acrylics over gesso, and stenciled with various CWS stencils when it was dry. I fussy cut the sad looking little girl (Gecko Galz) and fitted her into the butterflies. I added highlights with a white gel-pen. Her drab dress reminded me of the song 'Georgy Girl' from the Seekers (1967) so I added part of the text as quote.
I am also linking to Mix it Monthly, angels








Have a great day you all, take care,and thanks a lot for coming by!
