Hi Everyone! I created this layout last night and everything about it was easy but when it came to the chipboard alpha. . . arggghh! It's the sort of chipboard that is raw . . .you know, non-decorated. I adhered the designer paper on to the chipboard but when it came to cutting the designer paper with a blade. . .okay, that's when the "issues" began. I could not cut it nicely with the craft knife. It took me forever to to cut them out. It just didn't look very smooth . . .I guess I'm not a very good craft knife cutter, LOL!!
Anyway, the picture is of my daughter with the wind blowing across her face; hence, the title "Blown Away"!! If you want to know how to create a "vintage" look to a photo, visit my blog site "Photo Inspirations". I posted a Photoshop tutorial on desaturation.
The Prima flowers on my layout is by Making Memories. The designer paper is by K&CO, brads by JoAnns, chipboard shape and alpha is by Colorbok, and the buttons are just regular sewing buttons that I found in the sewing department at JoAnns. The buttons in the sewing department is cheaper than the ones sold at the scrapbook section.
Okay. . . my layered butterfly is a butterfly that I drew on Adobe Illustrator and I created a template to share with y'all! You can use it as an embellishment for your scrapbook layouts or for your cards. The butterfly measures 4.5 x 4.5".
Try it out if you want!! My next project will be to use the butterfly template for a card project.
This template has the "center body". You can use it to paper piece the butterfly. Click on the image and you can print it directly from the Internet. I think if you print it directly from the Internet, the size will shrink by maybe 1/2"; you may need to adjust your printer to enlarge the images somewhat.
