Butterflies and Hot Air
This journal page started with a dinner out with family in Texas, Andy, Gayle and Melissa. I started doodling on a napkin while we were all talking. I"m just one of those hyperactive Type A's that wants to be doing something all the time. If they'd been diagnosing when I was a kid I"m sure I would have been ADHD. Just the title describes me well. See there, I am off on a tangent. Anyway, I started with circles in the top of the balloon. I didn't know I was going to draw that. It's just what it turned into. I used a wash of diluted Elmer's to attach it. The rest of the layout came from the Butterfly house in Dallas that we visited. It's an amazing place if you ever get a chance to go there. I got lots of great photos. I'll post some later. Whoops, another rabbit trail. The background circles idea came form a video on Milliande's Art Journal January. She does a journal page a day. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
