Chasing Butterflies

3 - I believe in magic ADj_edited.png

RANDOM STORIES FROM THE HEART

NOTES: Adjust images and cyanotype style work to create a butterfly animation instead. Too much movement going on, a little butterfly flying out an opening window is simpler and more interesting here. Image needs to properly clipped and fit to purpose but the look and feel is much nicer and brings in reference to the cyanotypes. Not sure I can make this work at this late stage but can remember it for later and a different home page layout. I don't mind the chasing butterflies section to be more 'storybook' as a point of interest and it was moving too much. Butterflies do need to be included but I don't mind them being subtle and part of the storytelling process.

In love with the darkness, she blindly slipped into the emotional cracks and crevices of her unexamined life. It was, of course, much harder to pull herself out and (re)make a fragile beauty from the crumbling ruins left behind.
