Butterflies and Washi Tape

Hi everyone!!  Welcome to my blog.  I hope you are all having a lovely day.
I actually have an Art Journal page to share with you today.  'What!!' I hear you say?  'No, Step Card?'  Nope, not today!  Today I have an Art Journal page.  Do I hear cheering????  LOL
 This page has been sitting on my desk for an age waiting to get finished.  I was experimenting with different sprays and drips and this was the only one I really liked so I kept it, but I had a lot of other things to make  and I really didn't know what I wanted to do with it and so it just sat there.  I would look at it from time to time, and each time couldn't make up my mind as to what to do so would give up and do something else.  Then, finally, the other day I did the stamping around the edge and added the Washi Tape and it was like a dam broke and it all came together in a very short amount of time. 
 Added strips of Washi Tape in the middle, did the background stamping with a Kaisercraft script 
stamp ...
... stamped the KC Flutter stamp onto some tissue paper  and glued that down with some Multi Matte Medium and coloured the stamp with some Watercolour Pencils.  Then I stood back to make up my mind as to what to do next .... and decided I love it just the way it is.
Unfortunately the stamping on the tissue paper is a little fuzzy but I still like it.  Adds character I say!!

Thank you so much for visiting and I would love it if you would leave a comment to let me know what you think..  
Please take care and God Bless.
