Artiste Butterflies

Standard

Perth has an urban orchard, right in the heart of the city.  Raised beds showcase herbs, vegetables and fruit trees.  It’s right beside the art gallery and we always take a wander through this garden when we are visiting this part of the city.  Mike is a keen gardener and we both love the colour and texture that comes from food producing plants.  We love photographing everyday stuff like this – it will be a ‘snapshot in time’ for our grandkids.

The page is made up of 3 bands of 4″ x 12″ cardstock in Bamboo, Sorbet and Barn Red.  The joins between the colours are concealed behind two zip strips from Ivy Lane Papers.  I cut 3 butterflies from the Sorbet Cardstock using the Artiste Cartridge on my Cricut.  The central butterfly had her wings daubed with barn red and the other two flew off to the edges of the page.  I placed a strip of patterned paper from Ivy Lane behind the cut-outs.  The negative spaces were perfect places for a title and journaling.

I trimmed a little off the wings of the butterflies at page edge to make it feel like they were about to fly away!

Ivy Lane is my featured collection throughout April.  Book into a class and have some fun with this gorgeous paper pack.  Email me at shaunnarichards@bigpond.com for a class timetable.

Happy Scrappin’
