What can be more fun in the summer time then to sit in the porch and watch the beautiful butterflies, waiting till they come closer, wishing to stop the time and hoping that they will come closer, like getting a soft kiss from that amazing creatures of the nature… so I was inspired to get out my 7 dots studio nature walk collection, my Tim Holtz tag die and my Stampotique stamps.
I was beginning with playing around the nature walk collection to cut some tags, all shapes and all sizes.
I loved the results so I made a collage on my art journal page from some tags. Then I blended them together with distress ink and I used France Papillon’s design cube to add some texture to my page.
I wanted to make a special butterfly, so the paper stash I stamped on the paper stash with Daniel Torrente’s lovely wings, I used the smallest tag as a buddy and on my buddy I added a pen nib from Tim Holtz.
The text is coming from nature walk elements that I completed with two more tags and some metal embellishments. I added some shadows with charcoal pencil and finally I dropped some beeswax on it.
Butterflies, aren’t they the magical creatures of the summer?
