Summer of Colour #2 - Mint Choc Chip



It is Mint Choc Chip week over at the Summer of Colour Event so I made up another ATC using lime green and browns. I'm going to do a butterfly ATC each week and then make up an art journal page with them all at the end of the event, using the lyrics of my favourite butterfly song... I had a piece of boarder left over after doing my ATC so I decorated a jar to use as a prayer jar. Then I did some of my day to day scrapping and would you know I unconsciously picked brown and green papers so more even Mint Choc Chip! Yep definitely liking these colours.

Absolutely gorgeous ATC and jar, I do love butterflies, they are so delicate and graceful. Would your fav song be 'Love is Like a Butterfly' or is there another that I don't know?! Mint green and brown do look so good together and I like the idea of creating an art journal of your makes. A x

Everything is gorgeous! I love the idea of doing all butterfly ATCs throughout the project and combining them at the end, sort of makes me wish I was working smaller.
