Hello All and Happy Sunday!

Hello My Artsy Peeps!
So for the challenge this week I thought I would mix it up a bit! I had wanted to make another little mini book for myself to play with my watercolors, so why not combine the two! I decided to create my cover for the challenge. Check out my process video:

Dylusions-White Linen, Tangerine Dream, Funky Fuschia
irRESISTible Neons- Orange, Yello, Green

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for this week’s challenge layout, however, I knew that I wanted to incorporate both bright colors and also a butterfly. I have this fabulous ginormous swallowtail butterfly stamp from Stampin’ Up that I wanted to put onto the layout. With those ideas in mind, I set off into the craft room to create.

I really enjoyed the Inspiby this week. It was a busy week for me as our company arrived and of course, the house needed cleaning in preparation. This week was definitely a lesson in letting go of perfection. Not only with my house preparations but also with my art. It seemed like every time I turned to grab something, I smeared some pen lines or I messed up while trying to stamp a layer.
