I'm ready for spring colors. Soft pastels, green grass, cute colorful clothes, and making memories. Ahh, I dream.
I created this spring-ish layout for the sketchy challenge at Canadian Scrapbooker. I could not resist using these photos and paper because they just melt my heart that is wishing for Spring.
I'm going to tell on myself. I've been sick with sinus infection and all that comes with it. One of the medications I'm taking makes me a bit light headed. When I was cutting the pink piece of paper I thought I had cut it the right width. Nope. Then I figured I could piece it together if i cut a second piece to make up the width. I did, but then I cut for the pattern wrong. All in all I ended up with three pieces I could not hide that I had cut it wrong. So I decided not to hide it but rather turn it into a design element and machine stitched on the cut pieces. Looks good to me. LOL Lesson: don't scrapbook while under the influence.
I loved creating the butterfly. The base is a plain canvas butterfly, I stamped my image with embossing ink and embossed with this beautiful green. I inked the rest of the butterfly with Tim Holtz's distress ink Worn Lipstick. I added the diamond dust and little antennae (after digging through the yard sale items I've put away.) I love how it turned out.
The photos are of my Little and her best friend from last spring.
Have a Crafty Day!
