Butterflies and Flowers

Hello there. I have a project to share with you today that has taken me completely outside of my comfort zone. I have no idea what I’m doing, I have no idea what I’ve done – but I enjoyed playing.

I took inspiration from several challenges, gathered some stuff together, and set to gluing and sticking and layering and……well – here it is:

I printed out some digital papers and tags Vectoria Designs, and stuck down to some card to give a little bit of body to them.

On the base card I placed some patterned paper – no idea where from – and started to add the elements. I wanted the butterfly sticker and sentiment to be used on one side, and lots of flowers on the other.

I added some glitter – then decided it looked awful – so I covered the glitter with pieces of washi tape……..!

The flower tags were cut and arranged as you see, and I even added another butterfly.

I found some glass domes and added some of them and laid one over a flower image to give some more dimension to the colour.

Some of the areas looked a little bare, so I took a swirly heart stamp and added some detail with that – you can see part of it next to the black butterfly sticker……

I still have no idea what I’ve done, or what I’m going to do with it – but I enjoyed the process – very freeing……..no focus or plan to what I did, no squaring things off – just sticking…….

I have another kit from Craft Box UK – the Alice in Wonderland kit – so I may have another go at a different – well – what is it? Is it collage? Is it mixed media? Is it both? No clue, absolutely no clue…….

I shall be entering the following challenges:
