I had these amazing canvas butterflies from Maya Road for quite a while, and wasn't sure how and where to use them. Of course, doing a layout about my daughter inspired me... So here is what I did with one of them.
I layered a lot of glimmer mist, and I top coated it with Maya Mist in Silver Plated. I love this product! I then added some pearls (perfect pearl) and used glimmer glam to colour them (many different colours). I placed a pretty Prima flower to enhance the beauty of the butterfly.
I made another butterfly for the other page, but a pink one. I painted swirls all over the canvas with Chandelier glimmer glam to create a resist and spayed Party Pink glimmer mist on top. The resist effect worked, but the swirls were so pale that I re-painted them with Pearl acrylic paint (Adirondack). Here is the result...
To add a bit of relief, I created a border with a few stripes of paper and one of my favorite border punch (Fiskar); I used foam squares to attach it to the layout.
So here is the end result:
I used a very girly yet sophisticate looking paper collection - Posh - from Theresa Collins. It was love at first sight between this paper and I and I knew I would use it for my daughter! The letters I used are from BasicGrey and I misted them with Snow White Maya Mist for an iridescent look. Since I did this layout at a crop, I didn't have a wide choice of letters. I find them a little overpowering for the layout... but at the same time, they give a little childish look to the whole layout! So I like it!
Thank for reading!
