Happy Sunday I’m happy to be here to share another project with you!
Earlier this month I was packing up my supplies to head to Winkler for the 3 day crop. The week leading up was busy and full of stress from work, which left my mind blank of any creative pursuit.
Normally I like to have one project in mind before heading to the weekend crop, but not this time. So I just started grabbing some of my favorite supplies in hopes inspiration would strike. As I browsed my collection of dies I finally found my inspiration with the Tim Holtz Bell Jar die!
I wanted the inside of the jar to be like a mini garden that would attract the butterflies but still let them fly free!
I used a number of the Tim Holtz Wild Flower dies in various colours to create the flowers, and gave them a little bed of moss at their base.
It’s hard to show but I cut the top of the jar with some clear plastic to look like glass.
Of course I had to add some texture to my project using texture paste and a stencil, which I sprayed with some different sprays creating the shimmery green shade! I love that the camera managed to pick up the shimmer in the photos!
The butterflies were fussy cut from an old sheet of Bo Bunny paper that I’ve been slowly using on projects. OK you might say I’m hoarding it!
I added some stamping for extra texture and interest to the background using a variety of Tim Holtz stamps.
This chipboard quote was absolutely perfect for my project and expressed exactly what I was trying to achieve!
The crop was fun as always and I had the opportunity to play with something new….but I’ll save that little secret for my next post!
Next time you’re looking for some inspiration dig around you space, you never know when it will strike!
