Butterfly Lullaby


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. Well it has been a pretty lazy long weekend so far and I am loving it. Had company last night and now I get to relax today and start some scrappy projects. I just got a Tattered Angels technique kit and I am looking forward to fooling around with the goodies in there. I finished up this layout today, and I used a sketch from Stuck on U Sketches. What an awesome sketch and so much fun to work on. I used papers from the BoBunny Gabrielle collection and did lots of distressing and lots of layers. The photo is my grandson Johnathan and I just love those chubby cheeks he has.

This is a close up of the flower cluster. I tucked in some Dusty Attic vines and chicken wire…I know I know…I love the chicken wire J ….you can also see the distressing and layers in this close up. It is kind of hard to see but across the while bottom I have done some masking.


This is a close up of the DA butterfly. I used smooch paint and glossy accents on it.

Just one more close up of the layers and goodies on this layout.

Well that is it for today, I think I will go and attempt to work on the DA sketch now, and maybe my new Tattered Angels goodies. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
