This is my 2nd design for this months kit
for the Scrapbook Garden
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
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
