Wild and Free

Hi everyone! I seem to be having a busy time of it just lately - good job we are off for a break later this week!

Today is another day and having sorted out my medication and reflected on the lovely life Mona led, and her upbeat attitude, right to the end apparently, I am feeling much better! Thank You for your comments on my blog! 

I have tag for Tag Tuesday - for the Add a Quote theme.
The tag is some rescued packaging and I just used it by my mat for spreading leftover paint on.
I added some scraps leftover from other projects and today I added a butterfly (Indigoblu)which I coloured with my polychromos.I added a Tim Holtz chit chat quote.
Next I made a page in my A5 journal by rubbing over some dabs of paint with a baby wipe and stamped a Tim Holtz background stamp randomly over and a quote that has lost it's label! I also added a stem stamp that was lying on my desk
I now have journal page to link to Art Journal Journey, where Rike has chose 'Animals A to Z' for her Theme

Thanks for looking, Chris

I would have been by sooner, but the ice storm we had last night took out my phone and internet. It just came back on a few minutes ago.

This page and tag are breathtaking. I love them both for their colors, their composition, and the butterfly. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey, dear Chris.

Glad to read you are feeling better, too. You had me worried.

Here we can see which beautiful artworks one can create while using rescued packaging, leftover paints and leftover scraps! I like how you then painted and stamped this wonderful background in your journal fitting to the tag, and added all together!
Thanks a lot for linking this gorgeous journal page with a butterfly-beauty to Art Journal Journey!
Wish you a happy weekend! Rike x
