2 butterfly projects

I have 2 projects to share with you today.
The first is an journaled page in my bible.

I used STAMPlorations Butterfly Row  and Typewriter Alpha Blocks to make this page. I used an envelope that was red and gold. I journaled 5:16. making the most of every opportunity.  (NIV) King James version that I memorized as a child says "redeeming the time".  I was thinking about how time eventually runs out. so does our amount of opportunities to love others, tell them about Jesus, to help other people.  With a New Year starting how quickly it seems that last year passed, along with it the opportunities. I know I missed a lot of opportunities being caught up in my own little world. I am hoping to do better this coming year.

My second project is for the Splitcoast Stampers Mixability challenge. The challenge this week was to have a white focal point.  I took a monotype that I made the other day with ARTplorations  Ethnic Organic One and ARTplorations Fairytale Forest stencils and acrylic paint. I traced and painted a white butterfly on this print.

I stamped flowers from STAMPlorations Folk Flowers. I colored them with markers. I had a hard time leaving the butterfly completely white. So I added the scales.

I also added glitter to the butterfly. I used typewrite alpha blocks to add sentiment.

I thought the back of this print was almost as pretty as the front of the print so I decided to just make this a postcard. Praying that God will show me the opportunity to mail this to someone to bring a smile to their face.
