Beauty all around

Create to Live May Challenge


I always take some time everyday to find beauty all around me, and I never have to look too far. Sometimes it's my friends, family or my art and sometimes it's right outside my window. Spring is blooming all around me so I took some time today to try and capture some of it's beauty in my art journal.

I love the colors that Susan choose for the Create to Live May challenge and incorporated some pink and blues and all those nature bits and bobs ended up translating into beautiful butterflies floating around in the garden.

I have been enjoying using my handwriting on so many things these days! My latest project was writing this quote around the edge of my patio table...If you don't have Joanne Sharpe's The Art of Whimsical Handwriting book....what are you waiting for?
( entering my table / journal page in the Moxie Fab - Hip for Handwriting challenge )

...because, you see, I do live right by a little babbling brook and I love sitting outside, listening to the birds and to my little stream!

If you want to see the video I created using the inspiration board then please hop on over to the Frosted Designs Blog to watch it. You can join me over at {my sweet earth} to play along in the Create to Live May challenge ♥ where you have a chance to win this!

Beautiful Sandee! This is exactly what we did the yesterday, sat by a babbling brook on the Blue Ridge Parkway and had a picnic. It was beautiful. So peaceful listening to the water rush by and the birds sing. I even saw a snake in the water (could have done without that)!

Beautiful page and love your little table. I too have a creek that goes by my window.. Can't see the water right now cause the trees cover it up from my view point but it is so nice to see the wild life all around. 2 yellow butterflies right now that entertain me.. Great idea to see the writing on your table...
