Glue it Tuesday Butterflies

When I was a vendor at a Holiday Bazaar a few weeks ago, I brought my mandala coloring book and distress markers to keep me occupied.  I got a lot of playtime in,  and also sold three journals to old and new friends.  One of the mandalas had butterflies in them, which was so pretty.


This weekend I decided a good way to keep the butterflies a memory for me was to cut them (along with the flowers) from the coloring book and glued them into my art journal.  Next I cut strips of paper that I used to make my mini notebooks and added them to the outside of the spread. These mini notebooks sold well at the Bazaar; maybe because they were so inexpensive.  Extra sets of four are currently in my Etsy shop.


I watercolored the background of the spread and added grass.  If you know me, you’ll know I enjoy to journal with visual scenes.  Doesn’t this look like a Spring day.  Wishful thinking…


 Monday morning I decided to write something about the early winter blizzard we had in Oklahoma during the weekend, with 4” of snow!  That’s a record  for this area in the month of November!


Come by Aimee’s website at Artsyville and link to other artists who created art journal pages for Glue It Tuesday.

Your finished page looks great. Definitely makes me yearn for Spring!

yes it does look like Spring and I too am yearning for it. We're supposed to be getting mixed precipitation today then heavy rain overnight. Your spread turned out beautifully-thanks for a ray of sunshine!

Whenever you're feeling cold you can just look at that page and it'll warm you right up! The butterflies are so pretty and detailed!
I can't believe you got 4" of snow!

I'm so glad that we haven't had that kind of snow yet this way. The butterflies are so pretty, though. A little spring weather would be nice right now.
