I had a little bit of free time this week end so I finished a layout I had made in Design Studio. It's not a Fall, Thanksgiving or Christmas related just one I have been wanting to do.
I started by stamping The bird and bee from Nature Walk and the Decorative stamp from Bliss in Soft Suede randomly on my tan cardstock. I stamped the Butterfly from Nature Walk in Rich Razzleberry. I then used my glue gun to attach a piece of lace, I had left over from another project, to the back of my stamped cardstock. I inked my tan photo and journal mat with Soft Suede.
I used pop up dots for the branch at the bottom of the layout The other branch I cut apart and placed it where I wanted it to go. After that I added the large purple flowers then my pearls from the Stampin' Up Pretties Kit. I then filled in the area around the flowers with the punched purple and orange flowers. I used two different sizes of pearls for the centers. I then added the yellow roses after twisting the wire around a paint brush handle.
The vellum butterflies are inked and placed randomly around the page. I layered the single butterfly wing on the page with hot glue and then layered the other one a little bit off so that it looks like they were flying. The butterflies that are in one piece I used pearls for the bodies. This large butterfly was a happy accident as I was originally going to cut the outline out of vellum and the body out of the pattern paper. I had my papers in the wrong spot when I went to cut. I liked how it turned out so I didn't recut it.
For the journal spot I was originally going to use "bloom" in the center of it but decided to leave it for a journal spot instead.
