Summer Fun

Yesterday, I started out following one sketch and when I was done it didn't look anything like it! Does that EVER happen to you? The process was so fun, I embraced the randomness of my thoughts--listening to music from my friend Jennifer Yates blog--I created this:
isn't this butterfly just fun? I wanted him to have antenna and didn't know how I was going to until I cut out a large butterfly mounted him on pop dots and layered him over a smaller butterfly. I added glossy accents to him to make him shine. He looks so good in person!
more of my flowers:
I really LOVE this butterfly paper from Jillibean soup (as you can tell lately I'm on a butterfly kick, wherever I can I'll add one!) I was going through my picture looking for something to fit the previously mentioned sketch, and I found this instead...LOVE it! The girls are sitting up on a wooden fence that is WELL worn and there was a LARGE storm rolling in behind them. The colors of the picture were perfect. Last July was sure filled with fun family activities!
well, I just looked at the clock and realized I have to be somewhere VERY soon. Just thought I would stop in on this VERY busy Thursday and share. Thanks for stopping by and visiting!
