Double Tuesday again

Hi Everybody!

Another day has flown by, and I don't know where the time went....

Today is another double Tuesday. At Try it on Tuesday we have a new challenge, 'New beginnings'. The challenge runs for 2 weeks, and projects of all formats are allowed, so hope you will link your creations to us. I made an A3 journal page about the creation, going back to the very beginning, and the verse is the first verse in Genesis, 'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth....' I used gesso for the background, and painted over it with acrylic and metallic paints in various shades of blue and purple and gold. I drew the planets and stars and coloured them with uniball pens in gold, silver, white and red metallic. I used the same pens for the Hebrew and English texts.
I am also linking to Art Journal Journey, favourite poem or quote, and Simon Monday Challenge, in the middle - order was created in the middle of chaos.







At Tag Tuesday our theme is 'insects', not my fave subject. But I do like decorative ones, like butterflies. The image is from Gecko Galz. I distressed the edges with wild honey DI, and matted it with 2 complementary shades of card. The large butterfly has been printed onto acetate and fussy cut. I added some textile flowers and ribbons as embellishments.




Today started off well, but the sun and clouds battled for quite some time. I was still able to enjoy my walk even though it was not as warm as last week.







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