Be Noble, Be Humble

Below is my journal page for Journal 52 week 15 . The prompt was provided for by Sarah Trumpp.

“Be humble for you are made of earth. be noble for you are made of starts”.

I’m happy to at least achieved what I planned for this page. A universe for the background and a bed of text strips for the white butterflies.

I originally made colorful butterflies but painted them again with white gesso to make them pop off the bed of tea soaked book text background. Then I added big stars on the universe background using a stencil and white gesso. Stamping and writing using a gelly roll white pen was the final touches.

  1. I love that starry sky background you’ve created. I think you made the perfect decision keeping the butterflies plain white so they really pop in comparison to that excellent background.
