Wishes- 2 Crafty Reveal Part 1

For my giveaway press here
I’m giving away some 2 Crafty chipboard and Websters Pages goodies.
Here is my 2 Crafty Reveal in more detail. This is the first layout I created this month. I used the Sunrise Sunset collection from Prima designed by Finn.

The theme for this month for me is butterflies as I took these pictures of my daughter at the Butterfly conservatory in Niagara Falls last month. She really wished that some butterflies would land on her and of course a few of them did. Here is a beautiful black and white butterfly on her head.

I wanted to create a magical garden around her picture because she looks as if she belongs  among the fairies with that butterfly on her head.

I used the Prima BAP (below) this month as an inspiration for this layout. As a base for my layout I added 2 Crafty flower discs under the picture. I cut some of them in half, primed them with gesso and dabbed them with textured paste. Then I painted them with Shimmerz paints. 
Flower Discs (units of 3)
For the title I used a word from the Birthday Sentiments pack. I simply covered the chipboard in pastel chalk ink from Prima.

Finally I used some summer leaf stems as fillers for the magical garden I created around the photo. I recently saw a tutorial by my friend Tracey Sabella. She embossed chipboard which I didn’t know you could do. So I took it upon myself to learn how to do it and voila here is the result. I embossed the leaf stems in an embossing folder and then I painted them in green using acrylic paint. I love the texture it created on each leaf.

Here is the Prima March BAP I used as inspiration
This layout is also inspiring for the Up Up and Away challenge on the Frosted Design blog. Its a picture of a butterfly that flies up up and away and sometimes lands on my DD’s head.
I also used as inspiration a challenge at Berry71Bleu. The challenge is called “You Color MyWorld” & the challenge is to use paint in your project.
I used acrylic paint on the leafs and Shimmerz paints on the chipboard discs and in the background.
Here is the inspiration for that one
Today is the first day of spring!!
Happy Spring!!

    Stunning again, and your attention to detail is just so extraordinary… fabulous embossed leaves, and all the inky painty highlighting of the elements makes such a difference – really brings your work to life. Fabulous and so inspiring, as always.
