Now that I've thought about this I realize this page probably should have said Change is Required for the Caterpillar to Fly. LOL It's a little late now. Oh well.... either way you get the idea. Aren't these butterflies fantastic? They are a stamp set by Stampendous. I fell in love with them the minute I saw them. Even better I got them half price. I just love a bargain.
This is another page in my Things That Fly Book. I started with a light coat of gesso so some of the text would show through. Then I added a few colors of craft paint to the background. I embossed the butterflies on deli paper. I love how the colors peek through the deli paper. The butterflies on the left side were trimmed (a lot of people call that fussy cut but I don't care for that). All the the deli paper was glued with matte medium. I hand lettered the words with an extra fine tip Montana Marker. I'm stilling working on my tall skinny letters. They were thinner but didn't show so well so I had to make them a bit more bold.
Hope you are all having a wonderful beginning to 2014. I appreciate your comments so much.
