Change


I'm once again joining Erika at Bio Art Gal this month's host at Art Journal Journey with her theme New Year, New Adventures.

This page, which I created in my Challenges altered book is all about changes.

Changes are

opportunities to

refresh

our lives.

What better example of change than beautiful butterflies?

For this page, I cut a beautiful painting of a palm tree (have I not mentioned I have a love of palms?) which I overlaid with fussy cut butterflies and the computer generated words I colored using my metallic Gelly Roll pens.

Thanks beyond belief for joining me today at Art Journal Journey.  Thanks, too, for your continued support of my art and artistic endeavors.

Your beautiful piece has hit home to me. This Wed. is moving day for the Eldest. The butterfly motif so apropos.

This page is awesome Elizabeth. I love the quote and I love the antithesis of the butterflies up against the palm trees. I don't know why I don't associate butterflies with palm trees, though there are certainly butterflies in the tropics. The blue on your page is gorgeous too. This is a perfect page for AJJ. Glad you posted. Happy end of the weekend. Hugs-Erika

This theme is perfect for me this year, and one I'm determined to focus on. Things in life remain the same, if we don't take steps to do different things for sure. I like the ay you've set this up too, Elizabeth. Great message and perfect art! Hugs...RO

Hi Elizabeth! It's been so long since I have participated in an AJJ monthly challenge. I am so happy that I did this month. I am getting to see so many wonderful works of art, including YOURS! I love that you picked butterflies, your background looks awesome, and the sentiment is perfect! Thanks so much for sharing it!!
