This month at Scrapmatts the theme is Spring, which is right up my alley... gorgeous flowers & pretty butterflies and lots of yummy colour!! Pop on over and check out this link HERE to see some of the new chippies available.
All The Flowers
I have come across a gorgeous range of papers from Pion Designs which were perfect for this month's Spring theme. The background paper has a beautiful violet design.. so pretty. I was sent one of the new packs of Ornate frames in my parcel and they are gorgeous, there are several sizes in the pack, starting from a 12x12. I painted my frame white and backed it with some pp then painted the insert purple, lightly sponging over with a creamy white to soften the colour.. I added some of the cute little microchips and inked them in green.
The gorgeous branch was part of my prize pack from Marivic at Berry Blue. I cut it up and added some chipboard leaves which I inked in green. I just love this birdcage chippie, it's one of my favs and I thought one of the microchips would be perfect as a chain to hang the bird cage.. a couple of pearls to make it look soft and pretty and a gorgeous Collections butterfly.
I have a thing for quotes and found this lovely one for my LO.. it reads "All the flowers of all tomorrow are in the seeds of today."
OTP Project - Peace
I found this lovely gift shop which has opened up nearby and they sell the most wonderful pieces which are perfect for OTP projects. I covered this wooden item with one of the new Prima romantique pp's and altered the butterflies on the design with inks to suit my pp, then glossed to make them stand out. I can never resist adding the cute little Scrapmatts butterfly chippies to my projects... I inked them, added a mini rose centre and gave them a romantic feel by adding bit of muslin underneath them.
Again I found a beautiful quote which I printed on some pp and framed with one of the Nested Shapes chippies to use as a frame for my quote, then topped it with some of the microchips. The quote reads " The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be, is an instrument of peace." The Federation Corners with a couple of pearls were the perfect finishing touch.
A Couple of Cards
As well as selling gorgeous chipboard Sofie and Andrew sell some gorgeous paper tole products and I used these sweet little fairies on my cards. They went beautifully with the chipboard frames and cute butterflies and of course the Pion Design papers. You just pop the fairies out of the page and layer them with foam tape, which means no cutting and a quick and gorgeous 3-dimensional design. The chipboard frames I used come in a whitewash colour and I just lightly inked the oval frame around the edges and added a couple of blossoms and on the square butterfly frame I used the gelly roll pens to colour the cute little butterflies. The little butterfly chippies where painted white, stamped with a script stamp, inked around the edges and I added a stitched button centre for a bit of detail.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love.. your comments really make my day :))
