March theme - Making Your Mark
(Doodles and Mark Making)
March 14 Art Challenge - Borders
Journal Prompt - Borderline feels like
I'm going to lose my mind.
|(You don't have to be ruled by fate. You can choose freedom)|
This prompt reminded me of a recent visit that
Hope and I made to Wisley,
where there was a wonderful event
with beautiful foreign butterflies
in the massive glasshouse.
While we were queuing to get in
we noticed a lone butterfly had escaped from
the temperature controlled area and was
flying around. Whilst we understood that this
was probably not ideal for the long term future
of the butterfly it was still lovely to see it
flying free settling where it wanted.
These pages were fun to do.
I'm not sure that any of the butterflies
I painted actually exist (!) but I enjoyed
choosing their colours.
The border is simply white paint and
wooden indian stamps in grey acrylic paint.
I tried to give the effect of depth
I'm running a teeny-tiny bit behind
so I'd better get on with the next challenge!
Thanks for looking!
