Polka-Dots, Stripes, Plaids for AJJ

Wow this month is flying by ... I'd hoped to have posted a second piece by now for Art Journal Journey  'Polka-Dots, Stripes, Plaids  hosted by Erika of BIOARTGal
but here I am at last with the finished page I started at beginning of month which I finished one morning about 6am after laying in bed for a good hour or so not being able to sleep thinking about decorating, decluttering and stuff. Surprised I managed to cut out the butterflies reasonably well at that hour, and yes the cutting off of the antennae and drawing them in was intentional ha ha :)

All for now...
Will catch up with comments asap..
Have a great new week

  1. Wonderful page Gill! Have a great week to come, hugs, Valerie

  2. I am great for not cutting out antennae. I mean, it is so easy to snip them and not so easy to cut them out. They look super Gill. And I really like this page. It has a late summer feel with those beautiful blue pieces you made the background with. And the yellow dots remind me of sunshine. Thanks so much for joining in at AJJ and I hope you get some good nights sleep and don't wake up with too much on your mind. Hugs-Erika

  3. A beautiful page Gill.
    I cut off those antennae as well, I never even try to cut round them these days.

  5. Those butterflies are incredible, Gill. I adore the way you positioned them, as well as the way you finished the antennae. I would never be able to cut them, so you chose well. This is a beautiful entry and absolutely perfect for Erika's theme at Art Journal Journey. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  6. Beautiful page Gill! I love how the butterflies just pop against your gorgeous background!! I hope you have a great week.
    Hugs, Tammy

  7. I love how you finished this page! The butterflies look so beautiful against the patterned background 😀. I hope you are having a lovely week! It's sunny and warm here today so we've been out for a walk and I'm making grape jelly this afternoon with grapes from my friends garden. Hugs, Jo x

  8. I always cut off the antennae and draw them on. That's not cheating, it is? Love this soft and pretty page. Eileen xx

  9. A beautiful background full of dots and patterns for these spectacular cutted out butterflies! I love the way you finished the antennae!
    Liebe Grüße, Rike
