Hi everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
Yesterday my husband and I took a trip to Connecticut to attend my niece's engagement party. The ride down from New Hampshire was horrible with all the vacationers in transit, and then we got about 10 miles from the party and it started to pour. We decided since the party was outside we would go; I had mentioned on the rsvp that if it rained we would not attend. Luckily the rain stopped before we arrived and didn't start again until we were driving home.
It was great to finally see not only my niece but also my brother and nephew. I was able to meet my great nephew who is already over a year old. I had never met my niece's fiance, and he seemed really nice, as was his family. Plus, there was plenty of food unlike the vegan meal last weekend. Smile. That made the trip worth the drive.
This morning I want to share some art. First of all, I have another page for Neet's TYPE challenge at Art Journal Journey. The month is winding down so if you want to join in, don't wait too long.
Today's journal page was one I made back in June when the challenge at AJJ was butterflies, but I never managed to share it. I thought I'd post it today as it has a strip of a book page along the left hand side with lots of type on it. The butterflies also have lots of Asian type on them also. I also stamped the French word for butterfly on the page a few times, with is a different font from the others examples, so there is another example of type.
I could also say it is my type of page- ha-ha-ha. Bad joke I know.
You can see all the types here, much better in a close up.
The background is made with pink and orange paints. I also did some stamping in black and red ink. I painted the book page yellow and added that strip to the left hand edge. Then I also added some bits of pink washi tape.
Finally I added my stamped and fussy cut butterflies, and I also added a TH quote sticker, a few scraps of white foil paper trim and a cloth flower with the center painted yellow.
I also have a tag to share today. This time Wendy is hosting at Tag Tuesday, and her theme is seashells.
I stamped a 6x6 background stamp onto my card in pink ink. In between those seastars are lots of seashells. I used a bit of blue ink on my background, and then I used several Art by Marlene beach punch outs. I did add some zing some of those punch outs a bit too.
It was fun to create a beach scene. I haven't really done many ocean themed pieces this summer, and they are always one of my favorites to make.
That's it for me. Enjoy the rest of your day and your weekend, if it is still weekend when you read this post.
