My favourite butterfly (from Hero Arts), pattern and embossed paper were used to make my third papillon collage. The flower is one of many I've been using from the garden journal I found in a second had shop.

Thanks for visiting .. Another work week .. enjoy it and keep safe!

Another little collage with a butterfly from Hero Arts. The flower in the cloche is from the old gardening journey I found in a second hand shop.

.. a little poem from William Wordsworth

Oh! pleasant, pleasant were the days,
The time, when in our childish plays
My sister Emmeline and I
Together chaced the Butterfly!
A very hunter did I rush
Upon the prey:—with leaps and springs
I follow'd on from brake to bush;
But She, God love her! feared to brush
The dust from off its wings.

The butterfly and old letter writing in the background are from Hero Arts.  The flower in the cloche is from a very old garden journal that I found in a second hand shop.

Enjoy your weekend and keep safe.

... years become forever

Heart Journal 2012

... years become forever .. for the month of June our project was to use thin objects in gesso, sanding the object to bring them to the surface like fossils.  I had some difficulty with this month's project but I am pleased with the outcome .. I think that it has the feeling of sensitivity that I was hoping to acheive .. but you're better able to judge. 
Thank you Lilibulle and Thealie for your these wonderful tutorials and for all of your inspiration.
Thank you for visiting. Wishing you a wonderful and safe week.
