Flutter by butterfly













nobody could ever say I'm not dedicated to my projects, I put as much effort into every creation as I can...after all it promotes me, it shows and shares my abilities and of course great products and fun techniques.
I'm not on commission for any company, I am on design teams and I do get product to play with but if I don't like something...I don't use it.
I love EK Success punches...I use them
I love Martha Stewart Punches...I use them
I love Words Or Whatever chipboard...I use them
I love Lindy's Stamp Gang products...I use them
and this is what happens when they all get used together.
The butterflies are all hand punched, the grass is hand shreaded and the leaves are all individually hand cut and scored. The trees are textured through overlaying colour, impasto and PVA...tomorrow I'll do a youtube tutorial to show just how easy it is to create your own faux bark.

*the chipboard clouds were designed by me and retailers can order them through Words Or Whatever

As is the case when I look at so much of your art these pieces are amazing to me. Beautiful flowing scenes that make me wish I could be right there in that place to witness the flock of butterflies.
