First things first though... i won the inspiration challenge over at Get Picky this month!!! YAY... i was speechless! i get to be the guest dt member for the next inspiration challenge, so keep your eye out for it!
I'm really hooked on butterflies right now... thanks to the increasing popularity of the Butterfly Effect. Many of you will have already heard of it, but if you haven't head over here for all the details. The lovely Elise from the Boxx Design Team has also started a thread over at the Boxx to showcase our creations, and then collect them all for onsending to the museum. Go here if you'd like to join in. Fabulous cause and it has started a real tidal wave of butterfly creations!!
This is what i started with:
...but i couldn't stop there. So i made more and put them on a layout for the latest CR palette.
The butterflies are made from two sheets of transparency that has been spritzed with glimmermist and water and pressed together to blend the colours, then pulled apart and set aside to dry. The blue ones were spritzed with 'patina' and 'frozen lake', while the orange ones were sprtized with 'golden terracotta' and 'candy apple red'. When dry, i ran them through the printer to print the gorgeous little ink drawing onto them that i found on the net. The rest was all hand cutting... and of course the ever-present muslin! LOL.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week!
