Hearts and Butterflies

Hello Everyone! I'm back today with another page for Chris' 'Art For Art's Sake' Challenge at Art Journal Journey.

For those of you wondering where the teabags were on my last page, today's one was literally covered with them! I spread some DecoArt Crackle Paste with a palette knife, then stencilled some hearts with a That's Crafty dinky stencil. I adhered a music page hand-cut heart, and a couple of my 365 Something's stencilled teabags with France Papillon butterflies, then I finished with some Tim Holtz rub-ons and painty splatters. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Alison xox


  1. Nice page Alison. I love how you incorporated tea bags here. I've been drying some this summer, and I noticed in Sew Somerset that have someone who made autumn leaves from tea bags. I am still figuring out what I want to do with mine. But I will say-loving how you use yours. Happy weekend-hugs-Erika
