Madam Butterfly

Hi Everybody!

Just a quick post again, it's already nearly midnight and once again time went by too quickly!

For Art Journey Journal, favourite poems and quotes, I have one more  journal page. The challenge ends on Thursday, and we have had loads of wonderful entries. I used a painted and crackle-stamped background livened up with various stencils. I glued on a few random things which were on my table and which I didn't want to just throw away - the stamps, the tree and a scrap of printed paper. The moon face is from Dina Wakley. and I have given her a butterfly dress. I little bird is bringing her a flower for her hair. I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, butterflies.





The morning sky:




Another little visitor, although I'm not sure what it is - anyone know?
Not very clear as I took it through my rather spotty window!


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

  6. Bootiful photographs and I love the glass wear on the balcony and so does the bird. it Looks like a finch but not sure what sort of finch. Maybe a female bull finch.

    Love the art piece and how clever to use the butterflies in that way. Terrific quote to lift my spirits on this cold, wet day

    Enjoy whatever you are doing

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. Your moon face lady is fabulous with her butterfly dress and how clever to add a bird bringing her a flower :D
    I too, think your wee visitor is a type of Finch. It's a lucky bird anyway, to land on your balcony restaurant ;)

  14. Your little bird is a female chaffinch, we occasionally have them here.
    Your painting/collage is superb, I love all the pieces on it (stamps, 3D butterflies and tree.....) and what a great message, worth noting.

    2. You must buy really special bird seed to attract such a variety of birds to your balcony.
