Butterfly Garden - Pink Paislee

Happy Friday! 

This is a short post today.  I am getting ready to head off to work but I wanted to finish up before leaving.

I love the new Butterfly Garden collection from Pink Paislee.  The soft color palette is perfect for spring and summer photos and projects. 

This layout is based on the inspiration photo from The Shabby Tea Room's Week 59 challenge - Butterflies.  This week we were asked to create a card or project based on the inspiration photo and use BUTTERFLIES!  There is no requirement to use the colors from the photo.

I used the inspiration photo as my guide when designing my layout.  Notice how the flowers, chipboard and butterflies float diagonally across my page?  It mirrors the direction of the butterflies in the photo.

I used Dusty Attic chipboard flourishes to frame the beautiful bird cage.  I cut the bird cage image from the patterned paper and inked the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  I kept the Prima flowers white to maintain the soft look of the page. 

I used Pink Paislee's Artisan Elements - Circles to add interest to the page. Here is a close up of the title which is also part of the collection. 

Patterned Paper, Artisan Elements, Embellishments:  Pink Paislee
Chipboard Flourishes:  Dusty Attic
Chipboard Title Sticker:  We R Memory Keepers Layered Words
Flowers:  Prima
Ink/Paint:  Distress Ink - Bundled Sage, Frayed Burlap, Tattered Rose; Adirondak

Robin, this is so beautiful!! You have the most amazing talent, sigh :) I love how your elements "float" across the page! How on earth did you hand-paint the black & gold on the DA flourishes??!!
