Butterfly Wing (Aug 2, 2019)

Disclaimer: As you can see, I wrote this post 3 days ago, it’s just a small story on a butterfly wing that I came across, I thought it was interesting and wanted to share it, however I didn’t post it, but i’m going to post it today, I hope you enjoy half of the pre writing to it, plus some added things as well.

Happy August 2nd Everyone!! Can’t believe we’re already on our last Summer month, soon all the leaves will change colors, we’ll start going back to wearing sweaters with it getting a little colder and we’ll be in the season of Fall (a.k.a Autumn, also known as the Autumn Solstice……I know I could’ve just stuck with fall, but I just wanted to add them all for some reason)

Okay so I don’t really have all that much to talk about, although I did come across something interesting while on a walk coming back from the store, that interesting thing so happen to be a butterfly wing……yep, you read that right, just a butterfly wing, singular, no butterfly attached……..it was weird, i’ve never seen just half of a wing from a butterfly before……..

I was tempted to pick it up when I saw it, I didn’t, I ended up just leaving it be, should’ve taken a photo of it though, I could’ve shared it with you had I gotten a picture of it, but the thought of taken a photo didn’t come to mind until I got home and left it for a bit, it was weird, but also cool.

I also tried looking it up to see if there was a meaning to seeing one (don’t ask why, I just tend to look up things when i’m curious on something or something interest me, heck i’ll be honest, I look up pretty much anything…..well not anything, anything, most things, we all do it)

The search for the meaning of seeing a butterfly wing didn’t really come up to anything, it was more on coming across a butterfly, nothing on just the wing itself……I really should’ve taken a photo, but hey who knows it might still be there or may not (well seeing as it’s the 5th already, I don’t think it’d still be there, although i’d be very surprise if I saw that it was)

but hey at least I got to see one up close for the first time, butterflies I know are seen as good luck, as well as other things so maybe seeing the wing isn’t bad, i’m not sure…..if you’re wondering what kind of butterfly it was (you’re probably not, most likely) but i’m going to tell anyway, because…..why not!?

It was a Monarch Butterfly, they’re lovely they are, all butterflies are, except for moths I don’t like them, not.at.all…..I do have a photo of a Monarch that I took a long while ago, last year to be exact……it’s not the greatest photo, but I could share it if you like!!! I probably could’ve focused on it better, I used my phone to take the photo and that was as good as I was going to get…….

I also drew a butterfly although the pattern on the wings are a bit different to how normal butterflies look, but hey all butterflies are different right!? A little creativity doesn’t hurt anyone….looking at it now though, i’m not really sure why I did this pattern, I tried to draw a butterfly with the actual patterns on it, but it wasn’t working so I ended up just improvising.

Update: So those are the photos, couldn’t transfer them through my phone onto my computer for some reason, so I had to send them to my email….

With my butterfly sketch, I only outlined it with a gel pen, i’m debating on whether to color it in or not, I kinda like it the way it is, hence why there’s still pencil shading, it might not be the best pencil shading, but shading is there….i’m still trying to figure out whether I should give it color or not,

If you you’d like to see color to it just let me know and if you have color suggestions feel free to add them down in the comments, because I have no idea what colors to use if I do decide on coloring it in.

Hope you’re all doing alright and having a good day!!

All The Love ❤ ❤

Rose Garden (June 1, 2019)

Whenever I read the word Rose Garden, one thing comes to mind…..the song Rose Garden by Nick Jonas and the Administration, as you may probably guess it’s one of my favorite songs, I used to listen to it a lot when I was younger, although I haven’t heard it in a very long time, I still remember all the lyrics til this day, it’s a really good song………

Nick Jonas knows how to write good music, with songs like this, he takes you on a bit of a walk as he tells you a story with his lyrics, this song in particular though, it was the song that actually inspired this creation here.

I don’t really know what to say about this one, I know I like it, but that’s all i’m able to say on it, also the blue background was actually a different color at first, I was trying to choose a color that I felt went well with everything which is why I ended up changing it to the blue you see now.

Give a listen to the inspiration behind this creation here, it’s pretty old, but it’s still good too: Rose Garden By Nick Jonas & The Administration

Garden….(May 26, 2019)

I was inspired to create something, using the the word Garden, from a song I heard, it’s actually one of my all time favorite songs and it’s by an artist that i’ve mentioned before, two days ago actually…….

The artist’s name is Scott James, you might’ve heard me speak of him before with my last post where I shared my other creation themed on the word River, which is actually another song of his, Scott’s not very well known,

However he’s very talented, his music is quite unique, he always goes for a mellow calming type of music style, although he’s been coming up with different sounds for his music for a while now, i’m not used to, but i’d be lying if I said they weren’t interesting and that I didn’t like it.

He still has a bit of his original sound tangled along within the new sound he’s working with, which is good, because I really do appreciate his mellow approaches with some of his songs, they let you wander off a while when you listen to them and sometimes you need that……

Garden though, is one of those songs that you can’t help, but take in as it’s playing, it’s also pretty relaxing which is good because who doesn’t like to relax right!? Now with this creation, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with it, I just had the word Garden in mind and I knew I wanted to make something with it, but I just didn’t know how i’d make it……

As you can see, it’s just a small and simple little Garden, it’s got a few birds, some flowers, some critters and a little tree to it, nothing too big, but it holds up pretty nicely i’d say…….

Here’s the song that inspired this creation: Garden by Scott James
