I had hoped to spend more time creating art for Art Journal Journey this month, but time and circumstances have not been on my side. However, I had to create one last post for the incredibly gracious host of Art Journal Journey, Yvonne, who we know from her blog Meggy's Way. She has been charming and has done more than her share of hosting this month. Her theme is "In my garden there is" and she's given us lots of great examples.
So let's get to my final July "In my garden there is (are)" entry.
Butterflies and Dragonflies
grace my garden. Silk flowers with colored droplets on ink pen stems
sit among the butterflies and dragonflies that are part of the decorated page. The yellow and orange flowers I tried to add stamped words to, sit on the other page. All are held in place with E-6000.
This page was created in my Coll-AH-ge Two altered book.
Thanks again go to Yvonne for her hosting presence at Art Journal Journey this month and thanks to each visitor. Your support of my art means the world to me.
