Butterflies and more

Hi Everybody!

Sorry, just a short post again - had a hard day and am tired out, 
need to crawl into my bed!

For Art Journal Journey, favourite poems and quotes; Moo Mania and More, butterflies and Mix it Monthly, towns/villages I have made an A4 journal page - what else? The background was painted with gesso and then acrylics in metallic purple and silver. I added texture with a crackle stamp. The little girl is a stencil from, the butterflies were punched /stenciled and the town silhouette made with a no-name stencil.

Just a few photos from this morning, didn't have time to process the rest of the photos:

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

  18. Oh look at these skyscapes! - best yet, I would say - and your standard is sky-high (hahaha!).
    Do you know what the beautiful bird is? is it one I should know?
    Your journal page is gorgeous with the blues and the butterflies and I am sure the good little girl is only pretending to catch butterflies.

    1. The bird is a blue jay, I have a pair who visit regularly. They are funny birds, and loud!

  19. A wonderful atmospheric sky and a fantastic skyline town stencil,
