All creatures great and small for AJJ

All creatures great and small, and the opportunity to use a favourite lion image.
I had this months theme, 'Natures Wonders',  chosen by Gill
in mind when creating a couple of hybrid pages for 

I used one of my own base backgrounds,  it was sprayed with one of my  mixed colours.  For the  line drawn sketchy flowers I used  old wax crayons. The may have been a brand ? gelatos, I did buy a few many moons ago, now they are stored in a tin box, with similar items.

This is the second page I made with the same base,
When I read this quote I just knew I had to use it for this theme.
Butterflies have such short lives, but they are a true wonder of nature.
Thank you for calling in to see me today,
you are most welcome.
Digital additions from 
Mischief Circus kits
as well as my own.


  1. Beautiful journal pages and quotes. I will be singing 'all things bright and beautiful all day now'....Thanks for another lovely contribution to AJJ. Hugs, Valerie

  2. I am already singing it in my head....all things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small...God loves them all....I left out one line, but I remember vividly singing it at Sunday school as a little girl. All three of your pieces today have special meaning to my love of it a butterfly, a lion, or flowers. They are all beautiful in their own ways. Thanks for continuing to inspire me to try harder. genie

  3. And I am staring to sing as well---lol! Beautiful pages dear Yvonne!
    You really rock that theme this month again!
    Thank you so much for being such an inspiration always at Art Journal Journey!

  6. Oh Yvonne. I love the lion entry because it is so different and really quite romantic. The two lions look like they are really in love with each other. You got a LOT of mileage out of that background, too. It was wonderful and did double duty. Fun journal pages today.

  7. A wonderful theme for this very beautiful page Yvonne

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. I love that lion family. The king of beasts and his family. :) Their own little pride. Hugs-Erika

  11. Aww :) love these Yvonne - adorable image of the lion family, brilliant idea and the wonderful quote on your second piece - I will try to remember that for when I see a butterfly next.
    That's a cool background - looks very useful and versatile...fireworks, posies under the sea etc :)
    I got a bit behind yesterday as the heat really got to me - can't seem to think straight when its so hot.
    How is it at your end of the world? Max outside temp showed 36.2 maybe be a bit out with some reflective heat but - phew!

  13. Love your lion family and the fab jungle background you created for them.
