I have been having lots of fun over at Vintage Flair this week enjoying all of the neat challenges. This challenge was for a 6x6 layout requiring the incorporation of a butterfly and any word beginning with the letter Y.

My process was a simple one yet I was a little disappointed because it came out looking like a digital layout in the scanner when the only printed images were the girl and the butterfly text. Everything else was hand applied.
I applied flowers and leaves to the corner with an embellishment and added several layers of beeswax around the images and stamped into it while still warm. Next, I coated the beeswax with a dusting of gold perfect pearls (I swear I put it on everything..even my breakfast cereal if I could..tee hee) and accented with copper perfect pearls and then burnished the whole piece. For some reason on the scan only the copper is is showing through but the strong gold color really is there. Oh well, Not what I expected but still pleased.


  1. Wow that is so pretty! The copper and purple are so pretty. I can see the gold too :)

    All the best,

  2. Thanks Allison...all those pretty colors are stil stuck on my hands!

  3. It looks great. It looks like it is fading into focus. A great accidental masterpiece.
