One Four Challenge -Week 2- July

More Butterfly dreams

Robyn Gosby’s One Four Challenge week 2

I’m just letting my imagination lead me with these and forever fiddling until the magic works or so I hope!

We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it is forever– Carl Sagan

Edit:  I used a background texture, a touch of grunge and a hint of coloured filter in Topaz where I turned down the strength slider.

    This image immediately places me in a temple in the jungle somewhere. No idea why… Another wonderful quote. This lighter edition is so different from the first week and equally beautiful 😃😃

    Are those bamboos in the background texture? I love bamboos, and the texture fits great to the butterfly. I really like your result!

    Perfect title! You’ve captured that dreaminess of looking out a window through gauzy, sheer curtains – like what’s there isn’t what your mind is telling you to see.

    I liked the quote. We keep fluttering and fretting, if only we could stop to enjoy and live in the moment that would relieve us from so many problems unlike a butterfly. But who knows if the butterfly would not be frowning. 😉

    I like the softer dreamier look you have created here, Cybele. Nice work and really different from the previous week’s version.
