Yes, as most of you, my friends, probabbly know already, I LOVE to make stuff. And what can make me happier than seeing my little girls love to make stuff too. :D
Pictures on this layout shows Sol with her handmade "sitting-mat". She is so proud, she felted and sewed it all by her self. Just too cute :)
This layout was inspired by last weeks color combo over at The Color Room. :)
Alot of hand-stetiched elements on this layout.

Butterflies and paint

Hi my friends
and welcome to this weeks inspiration monday (on tuesday ;) LOL)
I have been busy playing with my shimmering acrylic paint and the beautiful butterfly stamp-set "colorful companions" by my Stamp BOX.
So while I'm waiting for summer, looking out on the snow (yes, more snow today :-/ ) I had so much fun doing this little project.
Hope to make you feel inspired to grab your stamps and acrylic paint too :)

For this LO I used a round scallop-edged eggshell colored cardstock.
Butterfly stamps by my Stamp BOX
patterned paper "på vingene" by 3ndypapir
shimmering acrylic paint by PeBeo
Alphabet stickers by sassafras
My tattered angels glimmermist "golden terracotta" and Tiger lily"
hole punch
black pen

I grabbed my stamps and my acrylic paint.
Used a sponge to add paint to my stamp.
I started out stamping the image several times on the cardstock, using my shimmering orange paint.
I used different butterfy images, and used some red shimmering paint along with the orange on some of them.
This will make the back ground pattern for my layout.

After I finished stamping all my butterflies I pulled out the glimmermist. I opened the bottle and "splashed" drops of glimmermist on to the cardstock with the back of the spritzer.
I used my Tiger Lily" and "golden terracotta" mists for this to add different drops of color.
Let the cardstock dry

While the cardstock with paint and glimmermist dried I wanted to cut out two circles of patterned paper. I used 3ndypapir "på vingene" for my circles.
drawed around a medium sized plate to make a perfect circle.

Cut out two circles using my scissor.
Now it is time to add the picture and the circles to the cardstock.

Added Buttons and the Sassafras letters for my title.

Now I wanted to punch holes all along the beautiful scalloped edge of the layout.
I used my crop-a-dile for this, but you can use any hole-punch.
Added a tiny black border along the scalloped edge and journaling with my favourite black pen.

Hope you feel inspired!
And Thanks for popping by!!
have a wonderful day.
