Well I think I said in my last post, that I loved fall/Halloween colors... Don't get me wrong, I do love this time of year. though the leaves have just begun to change here in southern Colorado, I really want to be done paper crafting in fall colors! I've still got some albums to finish up, but I had to take a break. This is what I came up with!
I knew after flipping through the pages of the DCWV Garden Party Stack at JoAnns I would be using some of the pages pretty quick!
One of them had glitter swirls atop various sizes of beautiful butterflies-- it is so pretty! I think I had the butterflies cut cut out before I even set up the album :) I also made many handmade flowers. I must say, luckily my DH was happy to help me out with these!! First I traced a circle shape and tore it out. Then I crumpled them into tiny balls and rolled the around and around and around..(get the picture?) in the palms of my hands. When you un-crumple them they are full of texture and the torn edges have been smoothed perfectly. I really like them! I have seen many similar ones, but I really like the *been pulverized* look!
So I went through my chipboard pages stash, picked out a couple pages from my Michaels $1 albums and traced and cut out the rest with my own hand drawn templates.
This page is from the butterfly album from Michaels but I trimmed the tops and bottoms off the wings so the shape better fit the butterflies on the pages. I never did like the shape of that butterfly album anyway! ;) I love this quote, i got it from quotegarden.com. Be sure to check there next time you are in need of a neat quote.
There aren't many DCWV embellishments, but I did find some K&Co epoxy stickers that matched great and really helped me with the theme of the album.
And there it is! I hope you like it as much as I do :) Check it out on ebay!
