My youngest son and I were out for a walk one day not too long ago and I happen to have my camera with. While we were walking I snapped a few pictures of some animals, flower and this beautiful butterfly. I just love how this picture turned out with the focus on the flowers and butterfly and the background almost looks like watercolor. This is one layout that I am not going to put in an album, instead I think I am going to put it up on an easel for a home decor piece.
I used LF-014 Jewel Alphabet die templates to create the title. I cut/embossed each of the letters twice with Posh Milk Chocolate and Gumdrop Green paper from Discount Cardstock. I slightly offset and layered the letters to create a shadow effect. I also added Diamond Clear Glitter from The Rubber Cafe' to the top of the letters for a little sparkle and then I used 3D Foam Squares to adhere the letters to the layout.
The pattern paper is Kaisercraft Provence from the Bonjour Collection. I also stamped a few butterflies on to the pattern paper. The image is from S-114 Vintage Treasures from The Rubber Cafe' and I used Clearsnap Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx Truffle. I just recently picked up a few of Donna's Inx and I have to tell you I ♥ them!! They are so rich and creamy and now I want them all!! LOL! I also used Prismacolor Colored Pencil PC-1032 Orange Citrouille to add a little color to the butterflies and a little more glitter too. To create the large butterfly I used LF-006 Wonderful Wings. I added a handmade stick pin, seam binding and glitter to the butterfly. In the background I also die cut a piece of Zutter Donna Salazar 7 x 7 Corrugated Board using LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals. I used Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber Snow Cap on the corrugated board.
I stamped the sentiment - Spread Your Wings - along the bottom of the layout. The sentiment stamp is also from The Rubber Cafe'.
I also added Noelle Lace Trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon. This is some of my favorite lace trim, I love the dainty edging! I also added some tiny white butterflies. The butterflies are the drop out pieces from the S4-329 Butterfly Circles die template.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
