precious butterfly

well, i have a lot going on here, so i'll do my best, lol... the paper is basic grey, and the title thickers by american crafts. i used a hambly transparency over the photo that had the white edging on it already, but added a ton of basic grey rub on flourishes around it, as well as a black border rub on. the journaling here is from the song Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle, and was printed on transparency inkjet-film. the large butterfly at the bottom is a mosaic, done by cutting tiny squares of glittered paper and applied with tweezers, as well as beads, rhinestones and chipboard flourishes. i chalked and inked the butterfly and most of the background paper, adding the blue-grey tone to it. i used an opaque gold marker to accent the flowers and some of the doodles (some doodles are hand drawn, some are rub ons) and added little doodled polka dots to the butterfly and flourishes. the right border strip was cut from a DCWV paper. there is gold print vellum paper that i crinkled and adhered with GLOO around some of the edges, and the rest of the embellies around the photo are chipboard and beads. i cut the wing and added it to the photo, decorating it with a gold marker and some mosaic tiles, and finished it with the GLOO to make it shiny and adhere everything.
