Today I'm bringing you the layout I created for the More Than Words March challenge to use the word beautiful and a butterfly on your layout.
I just really adore how this all turned out!
This year marks 14 years as a couple & this man can still give me butterflies.
I found this lovely pack of Prima butterflies at Tuesday Morning a while back, before this challenge was posted, actually. So when I saw the prompt, I knew they would be perfect.
Luckily the color scheme ended up working well with this photo I made him pose for last Sunday, which he laughed and called, "stupid," but he did it!
I chose a fun paper with orange and yellow flowers, gessoed it, stenciled small polka dots & used Heidi Swapp shine in Salmon. I also threw a little black shimmery Tattered Angels on there too.
I stamped a couple of small butterflies in black ink.
I layered my photo with oranges, and broke that up with a small black and gold doily and some white lacey Heidi Swapp paper I found on clearance a while back. I love that stuff!
I used my cricut to cut the gold parts of the title out of metallic paper, and to create the "typewriter" look - which I will do a bit smaller next time.
I also embossed a few Maya Road chipboard pieces in gold to tie that color theme together as well.
I had picked up these black paper straws on clearance, so they tied the black color theme together well and gave good dimension to the layout.
I continued the title down my MM stream, as it was so long. Then I scattered the Prima butterflies around the page.
I think this may be my prettiest MM layout to date, since I began with the art earlier this year. I love it!
