Butterflies Continued and Finished







After oodles and oodles of doodling and coloring and shading, then sewing buttons on the one edge, I finally completed my butterfly journal. Now that I am finished with it I am not sure what to do with it! Maybe I could continue adding pages to it and keep it as a reference journal with different techniques, I'm not sure! In the journaling spaces I wrote out some scriptures from John 3 and Romans 8 and then I just wrote about the beauty of God's creations and how when I get to Heaven I will probably be like a little kid with a million and one questions for God as to how He came up with the design for each and every beautiful creation! What a fun project this has been.
My niece has been visiting for a week, she is nine years old so I have had some rather enjoyable girl time with her. I am now the proud owner of PURPLE toe nails and finger nails! That's one I have never had before! LOL!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and as always... Happy Creating!

Wow Kelly. These butterflies are amazing. How fun and calming it must have been to do. What a treasure.
I was having similar thoughts on my way home from Washington. What a beautiful world we live in even down to the tiniest little bit of seed.
Thank you for sharing.

These butterfly pages are great, Kelly ... and aren't those days we have with our 9-ish-year-old nieces/great nieces just the best days on earth??? They are so sweet, innocent, and open to try anything artsy, without inhibitions. Wishing you a fabulous weekend, with great health and spirit!

Wow Kelly! These turned out so good! I love all of the doodling. You have to have this on display at home to show off to everyone.

these are AMAZING kelly! You are so incredibly talented. And I have to admit, purple, blue, and black nails are far more regular for me than any shade of pink or red!
