New challenge at Anything but a Card *

Another month, another challenge over at Anthing but a Card and the theme this month is ''Out and about, Celebrate Nature'' so that is just what I have done.  Basically I just filled two pages of my art journal.  I used Pan Pastels for the background.  For the sky I used modelling paste, smooth and textured, randomly covered in blue, grey and white pan pastels. I then used a pearl liquid acrylic paint over the top. 

I then stamped grasses, a fence and a couple of tiny butterflies.  I cut out a large butterfly from a napkin and mod podged it on the left hand side and the plain transparent backing from the cut out napkin on the right.  I used various pearl paint over the transparent butterfly.  I used alot of nature inspired words and randomly put them to paper.  I stencilled some dandelions and used black charcoal pencil around the petals.

That's it - finito!  Now for the pics

Why not head on over to Anything but a Card and join in with our challenge.  We would love to see you over there.
