Hello, Karen here with my first project for September using the Butterfly Meadow collection from ScrapBoys and Uniqolour Paint Markers from Uniquely Creative. These are water soluble real brush tip markers and a joy to use. The Butterfly Meadow is filled with flowers, fruit and butterfly papers – scrumptious.
I started by stamping a verity of butterflies from lots of different Kaisercraft clear stamp sets, using a Stazon ink pad.
In then coloured them by using a Uniqolour Paint Marker by using a marker to add some colour to an acrylic stamping block and then picking the colour up with a water brush to add to my butterflies. This is an excellent video showing this technique.
The next step was to lightly draw a circle onto a piece of Kaisercraft white smooth cardstock, with a pencil.
I placed my clusters of flowers and figs around the circle to make a garland and added a 5in x 7 in photo to the centre. The fussy cut and painted butterflies were added to the outside and inside of the garland of flowers with the outer ones flying clockwise and the inner ones flying counter-clockwise.
All that remained for me to do was to add my title (cut from a piece of Orchid Weave cardstock using my Silhouette) and I could call this page finished.
The Uniqolour Paint Markers worked perfectly for this project and I am looking forward to experimenting with different ways of using them on my next page.
