“Be Free”

Mother nature is so amazing, I am always excited when we find new creatures in our gardens. This year we were lucky enough to find a sphinx moth fresh out of it’s chrysalis. Normally we end up with  silk moths but never a sphinx. So this was a big find for the kids.

I used lots of background on this page. I wanted to pull details and textures from the oriental lily he is sitting on and also pull in the delicate nature with the flower ribbon and cheese cloth.


I made a little video of the creative process. I hope you enjoy.

I used colours and details that to add to the paper, the paper had paints splatters and I added more splatters with the Paint Stencil. I also found the perfect colour of embossing powder to match the frame with the background paper.


I hope you enjoy this delicate page, and the true beauty of mother nature.
