Scrapbook Garden Design Kit - Flutter By Baby

This is my 2nd design for this months kit

I began by taking the border off the Graphic 45
Butterfly Specifies 12 x 12 paper.

Next I too one of the photos from my collection
of my Auntie Bessie and my cousin Jane Wilson

I trimmed the picture and sliced it into 3

I matted the picture on Bazzills Sugar Cream cardstock
and rounded the corners

Next I took another piece of Sugar Cream
and using some scrunched up Bubble wrap
and some distress inks i added some colour to the paper
to match the butterflies Id cut out of the
Butterfly Specifies

I kept adding colours until I was happy with the result.

I cut some corners from the border Id cut earlier
and added them to the 12 x 12

I then went on to add a Bazzill cardstock matt of Blue Lagoon
once again matching it to the butterfly colours.

Using a Tim Holtz Alteration die I cut out the birdcage
and cut away the centre bars of the cage.

I stuck down the butterflies inside the cage

After adding a couple trying to escape
I added a flurry of them soaring to the top corner of the page.
And my title cut from the Blue Lagoon

I like this photo on this layout I think they go together well

Thanks for stopping by its much appriciated

Scrapbook Garden Kit - Layout 1

This is the first layout for this months kit for
The picture is another from my Vintage collection
and its of my Mams cousin Peggy and her 2 friends .

Starting with some Bazzill cardstock in Blackbird
for the base i added a strip of Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe

Another square of the same paper but the reverse side
 matted on Bazzill Sugar Cream

Using a Tim Holtz / Ranger Distress Marker in Black Soot
I inked up a rubber stamp of a cornflower
I mist sprayed the stamped image with cold water
allowing the image to run slightly then dried it
with a heat tool leaving a smudged look

I used the same marker to ink up some butterfly rubber stamps
but this time left the sharp image
I cut out the cornflower and added it to the layout

I added my title Peggy and Pals which I cut
from the Market Place alphabet

And lastly added the butterflies
by gluing only down the body to allow the wings to stand
proud of the layout

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peep.
I have another layout tomorrow from the same kit.
