AJ WK 36 Life is Beautiful & TMTA- Slidemounts


I have gone butterfly crazy today. I just saw one & it reminded me of fragile beauty.
This fitted the "Life is Beautiful " prompt perfectly for the Art Journal. The picture is one my friend, Joy sent me of glasswinged butterflies. I cut out tiny ones to sit on the edges & wrote in silver around the middle picture, Life is beautiful & soft like fragile wings...
Then I remembered purchasing this background paper on the TMTA ATC, quite some time ago not really having an idea how I would use it. I handcut my slidemount from white card as mine are all too large to place on an ATC & covered it in handmade onion paper which I bought in a craft shop in Corbridge, Northumberland. I also added a butterfly & wrote in silver pen, Love is like a gentle butterfly...soft, fragile, fluttering along... I'm afraid I'm no poet but I think it looks good!!
