Beneath the open sky?!!!

Well, that's part of the words I chose to go on my page but rest assured this is for Erika's 'In The Sky/In The Air' theme at Art Journal Journey!

It's a simply made page as we are as usual in a bit of a rush!!

I had an inky page in my journal that was perfect(ish) for a sky!
I added part of a tissue, torn and overlapped, to the bottom of the page then stamped Crafty Individuals butterflies using different Versa Clair inks. I stamped part of an alphabet from the edge of a CI stamp too. The words are a mixture of Tim Holtz sticker words.

We have an outing planned for tomorrow, and today we are are on our way up North to our caravan!

Have a great weekend!
Thanks for looking, Chris

ps Take a look at Erika's page today .....ooooooh!!!!

This is such a happy page Chris. It makes me wish I could stay home and work in the garden rather than going to work. The flowers are beautifully done-I love that they are a little abstract and I just love the inky background. And of course, who doesn't enjoy some butterflies? Thanks again for so much support and for joining us at Art Journal Journey. Hugs-Erika

This is an awesome page dear Chris! I love how you have put this all together! GORGEOUS!!! Enjoy your stay at the caravan! Hope you have better weather than we - here it is really cold for May and it rains and rains. Rain is o.k. for nature but those coldness is not nice!

Happy weekend!

Thank you very much for your wonderful support of AJJ and Erika's topic this month! You are simply the best!

WOW, Chris. I love it. I especially like how the background goes so well with the butterflies and flowers. There is so much movement in this piece and I can really feel the motion. I'm thrilled you shared this with us at Art Journal Journey using Erika's theme. We so appreciate that you are supportive of AJJ.

It may well be simple, Chris (which it isn't really) but it's gorgeous. I really love this and the way it turned out. Lovely flowers but I especially love the background.
