Today I've created a spread for Art Journal Journey. The host this month is Yvonne, who we know and love from her blog Meggy's Way. Her theme is "In my garden there is."
Of course the page I created has a few words. That's to be expected when you have a journal type entry.
As much as I dislike my own handwriting, sometimes I have to bite the bullet. Two ink pens were needed to make these words legible, though.
I had a gifted die cut butterfly left over from a swap, and tried to color the wings. The pens are on their last legs (or wings) though, so it turned out to be sort of a mess. I'll pretend it's an abstract so it isn't too offensive.
This is Butterfly Hill, and we need to find the secret gardens behind these houses.
For this spread I started in my Coll-AH-ge Two altered book, then added gift wrap with a repeating pattern. I also included a die cut butterfly and an image from a travel magazine. A sharpie and a Micron pen complete the materials list.
Now let's head to Art Journal Journey for some garden inspired journal pages. And I don't say it often enough: thanks for your continued support of my art.
