Prompt 4: Change

Hello out there! We're a little late bringing you the next prompt, but I have to admit that it's all my fault. But know that we're trying to get our momentum here, and we'll get there eventually.

Lita chose the prompt "change" for this post and I knew right away what I wanted to create. But first, let me show you her entire page. You've seen a sneak peek, but you really need to take in the whole thing to see how beautiful it is. I LOVE the colors she used and that she included a photo. And would you look at the the stitching! - it just add that little extra something. The quote...well, it speaks volumes about the journey of life we're all on, doesn't it?

supplies: vintage dictionary text, paper doily, black cotton, hambly transparency
gesso, adirondack colour wash spray - lettuce, sei tumble tie dye spray - yellow, grass green, turqoise, flowers - prima, kaisercraft, vintage flash card, kaisercraft alpha stickers, string

I've seen the quote, "without change there would be no butterfly" before and it's always stuck with me. That a beautiful butterfly evolves from something as icky as a catepillar is simply amazing to me. It kind of goes along with the quote that Lita used above doesn't it? The butterfly is nowhere near what it once was.
