Sunday Journal – Butterfly Art Journal Page

Time for Sunday Journal as it has been a while.  This one was dedicated to my girls and I decided to go with a butterfly art journal page.  As it goes with the whole “We give them wings so they can learn to fly”.  Or so we hope :) I started with this background.  I used my favourite plastic doily as a stencil in the bottom right corner with black paint.

I then used my Stampin Up! Medallion Stamp with pink ink and stamped it on vintage book paper.  I cut it out then podged it on.

I then took all of these beautiful sparkly butterflies…

and ran all of the black and white ones up the page, which are supposed to represent the average person or child (no offence to other children out there, haha).  Then chose a brightly coloured one to represent each of my girls because they are the light in our lives.

The pink one was for my little Amelia.  I put the first letter of their names next to each butterfly that represented them.  Ava was the green and Milah was the blue.

I stenciled the word “Daughters” across the back of the little insert.

I had to add a little washi tape in there as well, since I am all about the washi tape lately.

Voila, all done!!  I hope you are getting a little art time in amongst all the holiday chaos!  Christmas eve tomorrow. SO exciting!!
