We are in the last week of school holidays
and so I thought I would try to do the weekly challenge
for Inspiration Avenue and have
something decent to show everyone
Should have known better.
The theme for IA was butterflies, sounds simple enough
but I wanted to try mixed media.
Out came my trusty journal and I was off.
I cut out a butterfly shape and some butterfly music
and had this good idea (seemed good at the time)
to make up the butterfly with lots of little butterflies.
After cutting out about twenty little butterflies, I got fed up and changed tack.
I lightly water coloured the butterfly and glued it to the journal,
then coloured the journal and glued on the music
and now it is getting a bit yuck
(so are my fingers, with the glue).
Then came the next bright idea
to use glitter glue and gel pens,
So I place the little butterflies on the page,
looking a bit better, until
without thinking, I have a blonde moment and
blow away some crayon dust and
all the little butterflies
flutter about the room.
Time to give up for the day I think.
I am happy to show the picture today
as it will probably be totally different by
the time I put it on IA on friday
(that's also if it makes it to IA at all).
Here is my desk today
here is my poor little butterfly
(prior to the blowing incident)
Think I should stick to painting!
On a brighter note
schools back next week,
so I won't have the
500 interruptions that
I had today. :)
