Welcome to my blog 🙂
It’s been a hot hot summer here and something we Bangaloreans are so not used too.
I decided to beat the summer heat by making something very breezy and colorful. Just recently I got my new batch of distress inks and just the colors I could use for what I had in mind.
To create the background, I used three shades of DI starting with the lightest in the center. Then I used a Craftslane stencil and wiped off some ink using a baby wipe. I had to work quickly here before the inks dried.
Now that the background was ready, I embellished the page with some punched butterflies and hand-cut blooms. Both the butterflies and blooms are made from DIY marbled papers. I will soon be posting a tutorial for that. Marbled paper is great for making hand-cut embellishments, every pattern is so different and versatile!
Some close-up shots of the page….
Finished with a quote – Where flowers bloom, so does Hope.
And here’s hoping that the summer doesn’t last forever 🙂
