Happy Friday everyone. This week went by faster than last week. I am loving June, but I bet July will be here in a snap if time doesn't slow down just a little bit.
Yesterday I went to my first social event since being vaccinated and since the whole world changed with covid. My former department at school was having an end of the school year party at in the garden of one of my friend's houses, and I was invited to join. It was great to see people. I hadn't realized how much I missed chatting with everyone. It was fun hearing gossip but not having to deal with those issues also.
My page today is one from my garden journal. The inspiration for it began when I noticed one of my chemical structure overhead transparencies (that I brought home from school rather than tossing into the trash when I cleaned out my room last year) looked a lot like a flower. I cut it out and painted/doodled the stem. I also added some black paint dots to the center of the flower for details. I should also say I sprayed the background with 2 shades of blue, before the stem was painted but after the flower was added. As the flower is made of acetate, it was very easy to wipe off the spray, and I liked keeping the background white, because I have yet to see a 100% transparent flower.
I decided to keep it simple. The butterflies and dragonflies are punch out from an Art by Marlene booklet. I added some label maker tape (from TH) and a stamped butterfly image that I colored. On top of that I added a mini button of a butterfly.
Finally I used one of those ancient stamps in my collection and added the quote.
That's all for me today. I'm keeping it short.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
