Club scrap april artist team challenge 4/25/16

Hi all, are you in love with the april dahlia kit like me?! So, for this months challenge we were asked to make projects with either handmade paper butterflies or flowers on it. Well i love both but i love butterflies just a lil more. So i got a lil butterfly punch and diecut crazy and  made a wreath and a 12 x12 page . For the wreath i started with about 12 in x 3 inch pieces of currogated plastic ( i had in my stash) but you can easily use cardboard too because you are going to cover it with paper anyway. Which is the next step cut and glue on paper the same size the glue pieces together. Now my original plan was to use those big blooms i watercolored from the white embossed paper but they just didn't work ( see previous post i used them to make pretty cards) so then i gessoed the wreath form and didn't know where to go from there then i had an idea-( this is the part when i punched like a 100 butterflies from the other patterned papers from the kit. Started glueing them on and kept going . I then added the orangee welcome diecut and some flowers. Lastly, i am thankful i put the gesso down, because i took out orange watercolors and painted and splashed orange on and in between all the butterflies to give it a lil more pizzaz and touch up all around with wink of stella . Finally i added a ribbon and hung it on my front door. :)


For my 12x12 page i diecut med and large butterflies in the white and purple and the word spring in yellow . I used the negative white sheet of butterfly cut paper and layed it over the floral patterned paper. Then i layered on and pop dotted the white and purple butterflies. Then i added dazzler stickers that i colored black with an alcohol marker. And i also made some faux flair with my punch, patterned paper, and epo xy stickers for the white butterfly centers. And added washi around all the edges too. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating! To get your dahlia kit go to: www.clubscrapshop.com
