Sunset on Butterfly Valley – Visible Image

Hello! We’re catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration here on the blog.

Jane Tyrrell has a wonderful journal page to share with you, inspired by her recent holiday…

I decided to make a Moment for my art journal to remember our 2016 Rhodes holiday.  I wanted to celebrate the sunshine, heat and our trip to the Butterfly Valley. To do this I used my butterfly stamp from the brilliant Own Kind of Beautiful Visible Image set. I also used  the words from the Live in the Moment dragonfly set.

First I embossed my Visible Image butterflies, and then coloured them with distress markers in the same colours as those from the Butterfly Valley.

I wanted to represent the autumnal sun so I added gold embossing paste through my Tim Holtz sun stencil.

I chose some warm sunny distress ink colours to blend my background in my art journal.


Once I was happy with my background I stencilled some leaves.

I made my focal by stamping and embossing my words into the centre of a Tim Holtz clock die cut, which I had coloured with distress inks.

Here is my dictionary definition…how very appropriate.

I also coloured some snippets of card to die cut leaves and branches to represent the beautiful trees in the Butterfly Valley

and then it was time to put on my creative hat.

Here is my finished Moment..



When I look at this page in my art journal it takes me straight back to the sunshine and the memories we made during our wonderful September autumn holiday. Every moment was indeed very special.

Thanks so much for visiting today. The weather has again been glorious for most of this week but it’s turning chillier by the day…I actually got out and wore my winter jacket for the first time on Monday. Autumn is very much here now.

Bye for now,
