A new theme at Try It On Tuesday..

We have 'Letters, numbers or both' as our new theme at Try It On Tuesday.
The Design Team have created some amazing examples to inspire you so please do pop over and have a look!
I made a page in my Kraft journal.
I added various shades of white, cream and grey and then added some transparent texture paste.
Unfortunately I was so happy creating that I forgot to take photos so I have only close ups of the finished page!
I added some stamping with a ledger stamp by Paper Artsy 
 I cut some card circles and wrapped them in book paper which had been spritzed with Black Knight Infusions and then Pewter paint around the edges . The Paper Artsy Hot Picks HP1602EZ butterflies (chosen for their  triangular appearance) were stamped onto a master board I had created earlier for another project
   I added some white dots to eliminate any numbers that weren't a multiple of 3 and added some words that I typed into my Printshop app on my computer.

So…why did I choose 'THREE'?
Here are some random facts for you…
3 is the number of good fortune - hence the saying 'Third Time lucky!'
3 is related to time - 'Past Present Future' 'Beginning, Middle, End'
3 primary colours - Red, Yellow, Blue - are all that is needed to mix most other colours.
St Patrick used the 3 leaved Shamrock to teach about the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
3 is supposed to be the lucky number for my Astrology Sign - Sagittarius!

If you have a favourite 'THREE' fact please do share it!

The 'Letters, Numbers or Both' challenge runs for 2 weeks so please do enter before the closing date - 3rd of July!

I would also like to join Rosie's theme of Circles at Art Journal Journey.

Thanks for looking, Chris

What an interesting journal page. I'm super impressed. Those circles with the butterflies are gorgeous. I can't believe you wrapped the circles, though. That must have taken some time. It's a lovely combined AJJ and TioT entry, dear.

I really like the simplicity of your page. I think for summer art I should stay with things more simple and leave the intricate art for winter when I have more time.

I love the numbers and various texture in your background. Those moths look great against the gray. Fabulous page full of nature.
