Butterflies Love Dahlias

Welcome to the Club Scrap artist challenge! If you've arrived here from Donna's post then you're in the right place. You can start from the beginning at Club Scrap. 

We've been given the challenge to create butterflies or flowers from paper and incorporate them into our projects.  I had actually pinned dozens of handmade flower ideas until I got a look at my Easter photos and just had to do butterflies! My niece is just the cutest little bug that I adore with my whole heart.  Getting a photo of her is almost impossible.  Even when I put the camera on "sports" mode. I wish I had that energy...

Once I started with the layout, I just knew it was going to be more of a wall art piece than a scrapbook layout. I was just having fun adding dimension. It just might end up being a Mother's Day gift. 
Club Scrap papers and tags. Creatology feather. Style Steals flower. Celebrate it! doily and wood title. Copics and Stickles for accents. 

I used this 2 minute video to make these lovely origami butterflies. I added straight pins for the antennae and pearl strips on the body to make them more feminine. These little guys are so easy to make. Using a light weight paper is the key to this technique. You can also see Tricia make that three part bow on YouTube. 

Please flutter on the hop to see what the amazing Tina's created for you.

Orchard Watercolor

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
