Spread your wings

This is the butterfly inspiration I found over on pinterest:

I was so intrigued by it I decided to give it a go.  Here's what I've come up with so far....

First I found 6 pages to play with.  Then I glued the outside 4 pages to give it more suppport. 

Then I cut the center two pages into the butterfly shape:

 Added some water colour for the backgrounds.....

Then added some colour/design to the butterfly itself....

This journal page has taken some time, but I've really enjoyed it.  I'm still far from done, but am in no rush.  I may even make another!

Have a happy & super fantastic week

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty" 
~Maya Angelou

“When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings."
