Liza and the butterflies.......

A  page that started off  in my journal and  ended up being finished
with some digital additions [from Mischief Circus kits and my own images]

This is how it looks before altering. Water coloured wash background, tree stencils and a Stampers Anonymous image  sat on a strip of tape.
I left it for a couple of days and just didn't have a plan for what would  happened next.

Time to see if I had a story  buzzing around. 
I had found the quote on a Google search.
So here we are with Liza, who always wanted to be a fairy, she was  playing in the woods,
 where the birds told her she only had to make a wish and maybe the butterflies could make her dreams come true.

The theme for March over at
hosted by Chris is...'' If you go down to the woods today''.  So Liza is  popping over to join them.

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been making, your comments are always appreciated.

  4. Now I know, why most of my wishes did not come true. I will change my habitats, so it will work better!
