T is for Butterfly Girl

Hello Everyone! I have an art journal page to share today, created on the front page of a gelli print book I made for myself last night.

I cut out a magazine image and glued it to the page, then altered it with acrylic paint, then added marks and the chit chat phrase sticker.

I'm linking my page to...


And finally, here's a photo of my favourite cuppa (Tetley Tea), and yummy porridge, cashews, brazils, raisins and strawberries, that Hubby and I had for breakfast today, to share with Elizabeth's Tuesday T-Day.

I hope you have better weather than us today. It's poured with rain all day, and now we have thunderstorms.

  1. this journal page looks awesome, i like the summery look very much. and my breakfeast looked quite similar to yours... yippee, it´s strawberry time! happy t-day!

  2. What a gorgeous art journal cover. It is truly lovely and fits Jo's theme perfectly at Art Journal Journey.

    I've never had porridge, but the strawberries look SO pretty and edible. And of course, I KNEW you would be drinking tea, because you need those tea bags for your art (grin). Thanks for sharing your lovely art journal cover, your breakfast, and your tea with us for T this Tuesday, dear.

  3. She is simply AMAZING!!!! WOW!!!Her dress and her wings and all this fantastic marks and the vibrancy. I am in awe of this page! And you made yourself a whole book with gelli prints! That sounds super and I am looking forward to the pages! Thank you so very much to share this with us at Try It On Tuesday and Art Journal Journey! And happy T-Day dear Alison! Oh this breakfast looks tempting!
    Big Hugs, Susi

Thanks so much for joining us at Art Journal Journey and Try it on Tuesday! Your breakfast looks so scrummy, I've just added strawberries to my shopping list ...lol 😁. We have had sunshine all day here so I've been gardening and sitting in the sunshine, more gardening than sitting though, well maybe not ...lol πŸ˜‰. Happy T Day! J 😊 x

  5. What a beautiful book cover. I like the doodling!

  6. super looking mixed media art! Love all the doodle, and blue and orange are so striking together. Would love your bowl of porridge:) We had rain the last three days off and on so it's wonderful to have the sun and the heat back today. Happy T day!

  8. She's wonderful, Alison. I haven't done well with gel printing. So I was stunned to read you made a whole book in one evening! The cover is beautiful. I love all the doodles.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  9. It is a fabulous journal cover and a great idea to use a magazine page as a base. Super colours and mixed media effects.
    Your bowl of porridge looks yummy with the added strawberries.
    Happy T day wishes. Alison.

Your porridge looks delicious - I'm a toasted almond and banana fan but will give this a try too! No rain here yet but I gather it's on it's way! Hugs, Chrisx

    Happy belated T-Day Hugs Tracey xx

  13. Fun image you created.Your bowlful looks yummy. I wish I could still eat strawberries! I have developed an allergy to them over the last few years. I break out in hives on my face. Super attractive look. LOL

  14. I love how today you share with us something different. Nice altered photo and great page. Still your fab style thought. And your breakfast looks delicious. I would enjoy that...even though it is 9 PM and not quite breakfast time. :) Hope it was a super T day. Hugs-Erika
