Well nearly at the end of term & it's wonderful to have the six weeks summer holiday stretched out before me. Sounds like a long time but you'd be surprised how quickly it seems to go & then as soon as we're back at school it seems like (dare I say it) Christmas is just around the corner!! Sorry about that, where was I? Oh yes ... summer!
Hels chose 'embellishments' for her challenge this week so I decided to scrap around & find 'bits and pieces' (sorry about that!) that I hadn't finished or used yet. I began by edging a piece of TH script paper with walnut stain then spritzed with some perfect pearls I had already mixed up. I'm going mad with my mixing at the moment - it's a bit like alchemy I've decided! I mounted the script card onto black card. I had started putting together this TH butterfly & had just left the poor thing so I decided to finish it off . I had used alcohol inks on acetate & placed behind the main part of the wings. I had made the little flower some time ago so attached it to the body then added the pearl hat pins (Creative Expressions I think) for antenna's. Wrapped some sheer ribbon around the card & added the brass brad. I spritzed wooden flowers with perfect pearls (another mixture) then edged them with walnut stain, added some bling then arranged them in the right bottom corner of the card. I found an old set of words from Anna Griffin & edged the word 'nature' with walnut stain then stamped 'take flight' from Paper Artsy and added a Prima flower stamp to finish it off. I knew these bits & bobs would come in handy! Have a good week. Bye for now. Sx
