Things With Wings

This month the Art Journey Journal challenge theme is Things With Wings.
These are the pages that I've made for the challenge.

I'd also like to link my project to the following challenges.

That's Crafty - Wings 'n Things.
The Mirror Crack'd - Wings.
Country View Challenges - Anything Goes.

I started by colouring the pages with acrylic paint, I stencilled  some flowers and doodled some swirls with a glitter pen. I stamped some butterflies with a foam stamp.

Using an old credit card I scraped some white and blue paint over the pages.

I stencilled some flowers and leaves and stamped some small butterflies and script. The Indian Butterfly Legend was stamped onto a separate piece of card and cut out.
I stamped the large butterflies with black archival ink and coloured them with Pitt Big Brush Artist Pens.
I doodled round the edges of the pages.

This is a close up of the Indian Butterfly Legend.

I used the following stamps
