These layered fringe butterfly stickers from the Chasing Dreams collection continue to be a favorite of mine and everyone else it seems! I see them popping up on so many of your projects that you post and share on your blogs and on social media… plus, they are a fave among my design team girls as well! I am so very glad you all love them as much as I do!! It is definitely inspiring to see all of the beautiful things you are creating with them! They look lovely by themselves on a card or a page because they already have such great texture, colors and patterns mixed in. But they also look fabulous layered together or with other embellishments as well, especially flowers like Kim has done on her page here. Also read on to find out how to create the awesome painted background as well! I love everything about this page Kim!! Thanks for sharing it with us!!I’m never one to shy away from a little paint so it helps in creating some pretty colorful pages. I pretty much paint everyday so sometimes layering on a little paint on my scrap pages just comes with the territory. I also get to try out a few things.
A lot of times I don’t even use a paint brush. Old gift cards are my favorite tools. You can pretty much put paint on in all sorts of ways. For this page I wanted to keep it springy and use fun oranges and yellows! I painted on a few blocks of color to make a background and then added lots of paper flowers and butterflies. It’s fun to just lay them on, everything goes so well together.
I cut the flower letters from a page I painted and used a lovely floral stencil on. Certain parts are perfect for unique paper cuts. I hope you all are enjoying a crafty spring! Have a great day! Happy Thursday!
