1001 Butterflies !

The April challenge over at Get Creative is up and running and our wonderful leader Irini has set  a challenge to make something for Easter, whether it be an Easter card or basket for your child’s teacher, painted eggs or garlands whatever reminds you of Easter. My debut as a Design Team member for Get Creative will take place in a few days ( can’t wait ) .

Have to say was a bit tricky, I wanted to do something with butterflies Easter always reminds me of them as it’s the time of year in Greece which I love the most lots of picnics and lots and lots of butterflies ! Couldn’t decide whether I wanted to go with less is more or more is too much ! but in the end as you can see I went with the latter . I decided that after spending several hours of creating these lovely creatures it seemed such a shame not to let them have their moment ! The images are courtesy of Hero Arts which once again I have printed onto acetate and paper ( see a bit of an acetate fetish forming ) Most of the acetate butterflies I have passed through my texture boutique but being the expert camera woman I am was a waste of time as you can’t see a thing ! The flowers I made with the help of my lovely Silhouette machine where would I be without it !

I want to enter this for the challenge at Just for Fun the lovely Zoe has given us free reign this week and as usual I’m having a moan , I complain every week about the themes she sets this week too much choice ! Secretly I’m enjoying her challenges because that’s exactly what they are ! So thanks Zoe .

Hope you like my little extravaganza

Have a wonderful weekend
