I’m in the CCB Travelling Art Journal round robin and today I’m sharing How to make a Blue Butterfly Journal Page. This was my entry for March for the traveling art journal. To see all of the February entries head over to the Canvas Corp Brands Blog.
This journal is a group of 24 artists working in a different journal each month. When they complete their journal entry they mail it on to the next person. The process will be repeated until it has reached all of the participants, twelve in each group.
Some of the artists chose to make a custom journal for this round robin, some purchased journals. It is interesting to see the styles of each person as we get the journals in the mail.
We have our own little support group where we can talk about what we are doing in the journals and ask for help, get tips and ideas. I’ve made new friends because of this little group.
For my entry this month I was feeling the coolness at the end of winter and wanted to share that cool blue feeling but with the hope, that spring is nearly here with a butterfly.

Making a journal page entry is a lot of fun. I enjoy the process of thinking about what I want to have the page look like when I’m done. But sometimes it is just making the page that is fun. There are times that things don’t always turn out the way I think it should, but I never let that get me down. With Mixed Media there are no mistakes, just opportunities to try new things.
Never be afraid to try something new. You never know how much you just might like that new thing!
