A butterfly adventure...
It's my turn up on the blog at Love is in the Details and I have this layout there to share!
Last year when Kaisercraft released their line called Indigo Skies, I could hardly wait to get my hands on it, and you've seen it used in a few cards and layouts since, but the subject of today's layout couldn't be more appropriate!
In March when our sweet grandson came to visit Arizona for the first time, we were so excited to show him all kinds of wonderful, new things, knowing full well that we was too young to remember them and that we could show him the same wonderful, new things all over again the next time he visits!
One day we went to the Butterfly Wonderland exhibit. It's well named. Archie was completely mesmerized by this wonderland of brightly colored, flitting and fluttering things! And we were entertained just watching him! So it was perfect to use a strip of the bold, blue, butterfly paper along the bottom of the layout to help tell the story! I also kept a ticket to use as some ephemera for the same purpose. The edges of the original ticket were a gaudy shade of blue that drew the eye too much so I recolored it with an appropriate shade of Copic marker.
Other supplies I used include: flower stickers by Dear Lizzy, flower and acetate die cuts including the Brave/Wild phrase from Heidi Swapp, wood/enamel buttons from Pink Fresh and Maggie Holmes, label die cuts from Snap and My Mind's Eye, alphabet stickers from Fancy Pants, a gold "adventure" rub on from the Jubilee collection by My Mind's Eye and an assortment of enamel dots and shapes from Fancy Pants, We R Memory Keepers and One Canoe Two.
Thanks for stopping by today!
