Hi there! I hope your day is going well.
I'm staying with a Spring theme again and this time I've gone all lavender.
The beautiful papers are by Pion Design - 'Scent of Lavender' collection. Generally when crafting I include so many elements and media that I end up covering a whole lot of detail but this time I held back so as not to hide these lovely papers. I've matted them between cream cardstock.
Have backed the gorgeous strip of lace with a darker shade of paper. It echoes the subtle lace in the background paper. Sprayed some dried flowers lavender and tucked them underneath the lace band to mirror the hanging lavender at top. Used a Magnolia die, 'Old Swedish Lace', to cut narrow purple strips for each side of main square.
I've been hoarding the cream chipboard frame for ages. I think it's by Tattered Angels - the bird image fitted perfectly by draping some of the longer fronds to front of frame. Filled the frame with Judikins Diamond Glaze which dried to a nice hard gloss.
Punched out all the little butterflies and added either roses or pearls to decorate them. Inked most edges with Distress Ink in 'Dusty Concord' and dotted pearls at corners to complete. That's it!
Thank-you so very much for taking the time and for any comments you might leave. Thanks also to some new followers - you are most appreciated, especially when Google seems to want to constrain your numbers!
