Hi everyone. Happy Wednesday.
Today I have a page for Mia's butterfly challenge at Art Journal Journey . You might better recognize Mia by her blog's name which is Craftartista.
My page began with some assorted colored acrylic paints. I stamped the Dina Wakely face several times on the page after that. I colored the faces in with markers. I then used matte medium to attach down these pieces of lace cut paper I had. Unfortunately ithese pieces of lace paper were too pink so I sponged on a bit of blue acrylic paint to tone it down. That did the trick.
Then this page sat for about 2 months because I didn't know what to do with it.
Finally when I had some butterfly stamps out to make pages for Mia's challenge, I saw the quote. It was speaking to me to be used on this page. I used a stamped and fussy cut butterfly, but I decided to leave it uncolored so it was stand out more against the background. I added some sticky swirly gemstones to give it motion. Then I finished my page with a few assorted sequins.
And although my pages and photos all month have been mostly on the garden/nature side, how about something different? How about a few industrial photos from our couple of boat trips this year so far?
Cranes at the Naval Shipyard and also to do unloading on the commercial pier.
The New Hampshire side of the river has a lot of industry. The Maine side has none until you reach the Naval shipyard.
And then there's some bridges. First the old next to the new.
And the ones with simpler (than a drawbridge) smaller pile driven supports.
And one big permanent bridge to finish off my post.
Hope your week is going well so far.
