Ten Minute Tuesday

Hi and thanks for coming along to see what Ive managed to get up to in my ten minute creative bursts this week

Well here is s very quick page I have started.  I punched out several small butterflies and laid them out on my page.  I then sprayed over London blue and dirty martini Dylusions ink but the colours seem to have merged too much and the whole page ended up green, I need to practise with these inks as I have very hit and miss results with them.

When the inks were dry I lifted off the butterfly punch outs and coloured in the butterflies with inktense pencils which Ingham went over with a wet brush. When the ink dried I doodled a bit on my butterflies I really need to practise a bit with these pencils bit when wet the colours are really intense.

I still need to put my quote on this page but it needs something else as well  but I'm not sure what, so any ideas would be welcomed.

Why not hop over to Vicki's place and see what she's been up to and join in.  Its amazing what you can achieve when you only have ten minutes spare.  Even if you are only making a background, putting the finishing touches to a project or starting off a quick card, its a wonderful way to fill a ten minute gap in your day.


  1. I love how the colours have come out on your butterflies. Sorry a quote doesn't jump out just yet. Julieann X

  2. Beautiful colours - they are really vibrant...butterfly quotes - butterflies are flying flowers ?

  3. Any ideas I'd have would be rubbish compared to the art journalling expert that you are :) this is fabulous ... Such a clever idea, I may try something like this in my smash book, thanks Hun xxx

  4. lovely! love butterflies! jenx
