Beautiful Butterfly and Blooms..

Hello everyone, 

a quick journal post from me making use of tissue scraps.

The cold spell this Spring gave a late start to some tree's 
blossoming but what a beautiful sight to see the Butterflies 
enjoying their blossom alongside the summertime blooms..


Over painted with acrylics & blended with Summer Sky fresco 
I couldn't resist stitching these tissue words into the page, 
they sit like a missing part of the jigsaw..


Take good care everyone 

Stay safe and Creative 
Hugs Tracey xx

This is a beautiful journal page Tracy. I love the blue background and those flowers are amazing. This is perfect for both Mia's butterfly challenge at AJJ as well as the summer challenge at Try It on Tuesday. Thanks for joining these challenges. Glad you are finally getting blooms. Everything has been early here this year in my area, which is rare but nice. We just need some rain. Have a wonderful week. Hugs-Erika

Wonderful page, love the delicate colours, and how you sewed the sentiment, which is also wonderful. Thanks for joining us again at AJJ, much appreciated. Have a great start to the new week, hugs, Valerie

Thanks Erika, it's such a shame to throw away those tissue scraps made sense to make use of them and try bring out those areas missing with a little paint. I'll send some of our rain across the pond for you :)x

Oh wow, Tracey. The composition of this entry is fabulous. I could stare at it forever and learn something new each time I look. It's a real gem. And of course, I love to use scraps and these tissue scraps are fabulous. I especially love the stitching you performed, too. Thank you SO much for joining us at Art Journal Journey and Mia's theme, too.
