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.
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.
