A layer a day - A spread a week: week 50

Hello Lovely Butterflies!

I absolutely love how Butterfly Squad member Jane is talking you into yet another A Layer A Day challenge, sweet Butterflies. So I can only hope you will really take the time to read all she has to tell you about it! It will take you a long way for the week :)

Now 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!

week 50

Breaking free

There are so many moments in life when we may want to break free. This could be in a physical sense by moving away from our usual home to start something new, a holiday or a new job. Or it may be in a more emotional way, such as breaking free from old habits or from thinking in the same patterns. You could also view is at an opportunity to break free with your supplies, maybe using this as a chance to try something new: colours, mediums or techniques!

I wanted this challenge to be open to your own interpretation, so a good place to start would be by thinking of what you may have already broken free from or maybe as we head towards a new year what you might like to break free from in the future.

To help me start my art journal spread I am going to try something new to me, using asemic writing as my base. This is where you ‘write’ freely but the marks have no specific meaning, they cannot be read. I thought this would be ideal for me to think through what I want to break free from, but without it being readable. I will be covering this with layers as they come to me, breaking free from what I was originally thinking.

I would love for you to have a go at breaking free with me this week, there are no rights or wrongs just do what feels best to you. I look forward to seeing your spreads!

Happy crafting,

Jane xx
