This is my son about 15 years ago on his wedding day, he doesn't like to smile much for photos but I think this is him being pensive. The journaling will be hidden behind the page because unfortunately my son has been divorced.
This is my interpretation of the fabulous sketch over at Once Upon a Sketch http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com.au/
And now for a couple of close-ups.
I've done some fussy cutting of the flowers and then mounted them as I did with the smaller two butterflies. The vine and flowers are all Prima and I stamped some colour on the smaller ones. The beautiful bule/green butterfly is also Prima. The alpha is from Buzz & Bloom and I painted it with Gesso before inking with Versa Color marigold to match the smaller roses. I've also used Kaisercraft Clock Transparency and flourish and a Sullivans flourish. To finish off the alpha title I covered it with Dimensional Magic.
