Hello Lovely Butterflies!
It’s Jane here with a new post for the ALAD/ASAW challenge!
In case this is the first time you read about the challenge, check out the first blog post on the subject here, where we explain what it is all about.
You can join the fun at any time on the France Papillon and Creative Butterflies facebook group, where lots of alad spreads and in between layers get shared, which will definitely help your mojo to be inspired!
See the beauty within
As we live in a more and more image obsessed world it seems that many people care much more about outward appearance rather than what is inside. So for this challenge I thought we could consider looking beyond the superficial and see the beauty within. For me that means looking at what parts of a person’s character makes them beautiful or even looking within ourselves as we can often be harsher than others are.
To get started with my spread I am going to think of what words come to mind when I think of what Inner beauty means to me. I may also get an idea of colours that I associate with those words and feelings and these could be used within my spread, maybe as my first layer or as part of the stamping or stencilling that I might use later on.
What do you think makes inner beauty?
I would love to see what you think in your art journaling this week!
