Butterfly's Take Flight

I love Butterfly's and have quite a collection of butterfly stamps... When I saw a portrait with butterfly's done by Tamara Laporte of Willowing I was so inspired to do this painting. I used mostly my watercolor crayons in this... I thought maybe it was a bit too busy in the background but hey I like busy! LOL

For my substrate I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth Paper.. I think I'm liking the Bristol Paper a lot but in
the Vellum.. Have to get some more of that...

As a matter of fact it's the Bristol Vellum that is used in the Strathmore Mixed Media Journals..

Nice and sturdy and you can wet it all you want with all different mediums and it doesn't curl like
the Canson Mixed Media Journal does. 

I use both but hands up I like my Strathmore's the best.

Hey!! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love butterflies, too, Robyn. And, the colors you used in this. Very soft and pretty. Butterflies symbolize all that is good...the life changes and adaptations are inspiring. You did good! :-)

  2. Really like your background Robyn...great choice of colors too!

  3. She's beautiful Robyn. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Robyn, this is really lovely.
