We Could All Learn Something from Butterflies

Helloooooo -- and TGIF!! I took a bit more time last night to relax and finish more of my Deconstructed Journal pages and thought I would share this one. It's a collaboration between one of the students (and DEAR friend) from the class, Mimi DiNatale. When I saw her original page I fell in love with the shapes and colors. It was stunning before -- I had a little bit of guilt working on it. But, I know Mimi won't mind. At the end of the class we swapped pages because this one really spoke to me. From the first moment I looked at it I saw wing shapes from the colors she applied to the page. Still not sure how she created this but it is super cool. I was so lucky that she would part with it.

To create this page I highlighted the wings with a pencil and painted the background with white. When that was dry I journaled with a pencil and added a border and detailed the butterflies with a marker.

It turned out super whimsical and the perfect combination of colors.

And really, couldn't we all learn a thing or two from those beautiful and graceful creatures?

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend!
