Hi everyone. Today I have lots of flowers and a few other things in my post. The bees arrived yesterday just after 7 AM, and they went into the new hive with no problems. I have some photos but I'll share those another time as I had this post mostly ready to go.
I thought I would start off with second look at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.
Here's a card I made back in June of 2014. I hardly ever make cards now, but I used to make a lot of them. (And I probably should start making more now as they are fun to make.) I picked this piece because it makes me happy as it is bright and cheery and also has a butterfly on it. Here's the original post: Sunflowers.
Butterflies are this month's theme at Art Journal Journey and Mia is hosting, and although cards are not accepted in this challenge, if you have any butterfly art journal pages we'd love to have you join us. This piece also doesn't work because it is a repost of an older post.
I also made a tag yesterday for Michele's FACE challenge at Tag Tuesday
I colored a white tag with some ink pads, and then added white metallic paper lace as well as a white die cut tree. The face is made out of paper clay and colored with some gold gesso. I used a whole package of clay last winter one day and made some interesting dimensional bits to use in other art.
Last week I was lucky enough to visit 2 different gardens. One of the gardens was Bedrock Gardens that I've shown you before. I met my friend back there because we wanted to see the rhododendrons in bloom. A lot had changed in the 2 weeks since'd we'd last visited,
