Once again, I've used the new Graphic 45 A Ladies' Diary collection. The papers are in such soft hues, and coordinate so easily together, it's fun and fast to layer patterns and colors.
I love these painted buttons by Bella Blvd...after adhering it over a piece of gathered lace, I placed it over a couple scraps of tea-dyed lace that I "painted" here and there with a water brush and diluted Worn Lipstick Distress Ink...
This fun corrugated cardboard butterfly came from Linda at The Funkie Junkie Boutique ...I dry-brushed some white paint around the edges, put a sprinkling of coarse clear glitter over that, and added some pearls to the center, for just a bit of glitz against the natural texture of the cardboard...
