Butterflies for...... Art Journal Journey


and a new theme for the month


  chosen for us  by Mia from  Craftartista

 our  Host for this month over at Art Journal Journey

Please pop over to AJJ to read the details and to see Mia's inspiration page for her theme.

Butterflies are  lovely to see in our gardens at this time of the year,

 they are not as colourful  here in the UK

 as the ones I added digitally to my journal page,

 but they look so delicate and magical as they flutter round the flowers.

This is how the page started before the butterflies were added.

A second print from a stencil, a really old script stamp and finally  a  piece torn from the corner of  a floral napkin .

Thank you for calling in to see me today and I hope you will join us at AJJ this month.

Stay safe.


  1. This is really stunning, Yvonne. I never imagined you were using a napkin. You certainly know how to put them to good use. This is a wonderful entry for Mia's butterfly theme, dear.

  2. Fabulous page, Yvonne, flowers and butterflies are pure summer feeling! Have a great day, hugs, Valerie

  3. A beautiful page, Yvonne. Thank you for sharing the steps with us. It is great to see how you combined the napkin, the stamp and the digital butterflies too. Thank you for the inspiration, my friend. And thank you for joining my challenge at AJJ. Kisses!

  4. A truly lovely page Yvonne. Love the flower garden and the blue sky - those gorgeous pink butterflies must be in their element! Hope you are feeling able to get out a little more, hugs, Chrisxx

  5. This is such a wonderful page Yvonne. I love the beautiful spring colors, and of course, all the butterflies. They may not be that pink in your garden but I bet they are also just as pretty. Have a wonderful start to the new month and I agree with Chris, hope you feel you can get out a bit now. Hugs-Erika

  6. WOW so beautiful ...


  7. A gorgeous butterfly page Yvonne! xx

  8. Sweet and beautiful page, Yvonne.
    Happy and healthy June to you and yours xx

  9. That is so enchantingly beautiful and so fine in the way this journal page, wonderful to dream!
    Hugs Elke

  10. A very lovely page, Yvonne. The napkin's the perfect touch. I am hoping you have gotten out for that walk you mentioned a little while back. I'm in the worst funk myself. Everyone around me is making plans to get social again, but because of my Arthurs I can't risk it yet. People like me don't get the same antibody protection amount as most from the vaccine. It's been 15 months and counting in self-isolation, but I haven't caught it, thank God. xoxo

  11. Very pretty and very clever with all the different elements including the digital additions it all looks meant to be together like this. x

  12. How fortunate to have such a great start for your butterfly page. It was lovely before but now it is even more so. I love how the bottom left corner has a concentration of colour and then it goes much quieter as it reaches the rest of the page. Gorgeous butterflies and words. Just perfect! A real summers day.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  13. Beautiful and stunning creation.. gorgeous colours. xx

  14. Such a beautiful page! I love the background that you created with the stenciling and pretty napkin of flowers 😁. The digital additions work so beautifully too. Take care and wishing you a wonderful weekend! Happy June! Hugs, Jo x

  15. So pretty! I love gardens that are full of flowers and color. And the butterflies love them too. Your page is a delicate scene. An important sentiment too.

  16. Somehow this is shouting SUMMER! It’s really lovely Yvonne.
