Butterflies!! Love them!


Okay!!  Day 2 of the 90-day Blog Challenge!  I LOOOOVE creating with napkins.  They give fantastic texture to a page if you want them too…..but the patterns and images on them are just so fun and with this particular napkin…..so vibrant and fun!!  I’d found this quote and just had to try it on a journal page.  I love to play with different lettering and was really pleased with how this page turned out!!  There is really nothing more than a couple of pieces of this napkin, some doodling with a black and white pen and my quote.  The colors in this napkin lent itself beautifully to an art journal page and there was really nothing more I could add to it.  Does that make it cheating and not really an “art” journal page…..I don’t know…..and I really don’t care!!!  LOL.


I just LOVE the colors and the depth of layers of color on these napkins!  I used my Unibal Signo white gel pen which I think is an amazing pen that writes over anything!!!  There is a trick to using it and you have to be patient and write slow…..but it covers like a dang!  The black pen I used on this page was my go to Pilot Perma-Ball pen, which like it’s counterpart will seriously write over anything!  This lettering style I learned from my friend Sandee Setliff in a series of lettering YouTube videos she did.  Here’s a link to her YouTube channel so you can check her videos out!!


And here’s the full page…..
