For our second week’s over on the Journal52 Facebook group, we were given the prompt “Somewhere, someplace”. I chose to do a sort of outdoor theme as I truly feel the most relaxed when I’m enjoying the beauty of the outdoors….whether it be actually sitting outside or viewing it from the comfort and warmth of my front window. My camera and files are full of pictures of wildlife, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, flowers, trees, water…..sunrises and sunsets.
I fussy cut out the corner piece from one of my BoBunny Gabrielle Flight sheets of paper. It’s one of my many lines of paper in my hoard…..I mean stash, that I’ve had for a long time and have never used. I also fussy cut out three more butterflies from a second sheet. Yup, that’s right….I cut into TWO pieces of that paper line! I know I’ll recover soon…..it may just take a little bit of time.
I painted the background very loosely with some of my new Liquitex Basic’s acrylic paints. I used the Bright Aqua Green, some Raw Siena, Ivory Black and Mars Black. I used one of my Crafters Workshop stencils called Mini Well Rounded that I purchased from the Frosted Designs on-line store I edged the three smaller butterflies with some black Gelato as well as put some around the border of the page. I also added some white Gelato around those same three butterflies to give them a sort of halo effect to help them pop off the page a bit. My did my journalling in the circle in the corner piece and it says, “and I think to myself….what a wonderful world”. Around the edge of the circle there is a phrase repeated over and over which also says, “There is beauty all around”.
Nothing like leaving this page to the last minute…..our next prompt comes out tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by…..till next time!
