Some Journal pages

Thought I'd share a couple of journal pages I have done recently. You have seen this blue one before which I prepared at The Art Journalling Weekend at Dys. the wording is a Tim Holtz stamp which says simply "Life isnt about finding yourself its about creating yourself" Its taken a while to decide on the imagery for this page but I decided what better than a caterpillar (bottom left) who turns into a beautiful butterfly. The butterflies have been stamped onto some K&Co scrap paper and I'm now pleased the page is finished.
This page is from our last art journalling session at The Stampman. We used the theme of Hope to guide the page. the Butterfly is stamped onto the page then again onto patterned paper and only joined at the body so can look 3d. Ive used one of Dys border techniques down the side of lady bumps with doodled lady bumps and have added my journalling in the border.
I'm quite pleased with both these and the mixture of papers and stamps to create them alongside inks, paints and masks x
