Creative Team - Butterfly Kisses Art Journal Project

Creative Team Butterfly Kisses Art Journal Project

By Creative Team member - Dani Choate



Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks - set 2 (Sedona, Blushing, Fuschia & Marine)
Pink Paislee patterned paper 10 - squares of pattern to cut butterflies out
Pinkfresh Be You 'Sincere' paper - green with dot
Cocoa Vanilla - More Than Words - 'Gossamer' - fussy cut butterflies out
Cocoa Vanilla - More Than Words - 'Collage' - black and white larger butterflies
Helmar 450 glue


Using Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Sedona, Blushing & Fuschia scribble and wet blend some colour into the right hand page, top right hand corner.
Using the same colours apply some pigment to a plastic bag or craft mat, mix with water to create a liquid watercolour style paint and then flick some splatters outward across the page originating from the location that you will place your main cluster.
Do the same flicking of colour with Marine out across the page.

Cut your Pink Paislee pattern #10 paper into small squares so you have many different paper patterns.
Using your Crafts 4U Medium Butterfly Die, cut a few different patterns of butterflies. Put aside the butterflies. Make sure to save the outer frames.
With the outer frames of the die cut butterflies we will be stencilling.
Using a baby wipe and a butterfly frame, Stencil  away some colour from the red sections on the page.
Also stencil some shadow colour (light red from the baby wipe) onto, some of the white ares on the right hand page)
Stencil some medium and small butterflies in marine using a spomge acros the left hand page. Make sure that the colour is light.
Fussy cut quite a few butterflies from the Cocoa Vanilla 'More than Words' paper. Some in the small coloured variety and 3 in the black & white larger variety.
Die cut a large scalloped circle with the Crafts 4U Decorative Round die
Glue a rough piece of loose gauze  onto the right hand page
Attach the Circle Die Cut and pop up with dimensional tape
Cluster the die cut butterflies around the inside edge of the circle...  as if the butterflies are about to fly outward.
Inside that cicular cluster, glue 3 Cocoa Vanilla fussy cut small butterflies
At the centre of the circle glue a single blue flower
Randomly place flowers and butterflies around the page as if the butterflies are flying off the page
Use puffy Pinkfresh lettering to add a quote or sentiment. I have written 'Butterfly Kisses' and then typed with a typewriter...  '...and ladybug hugs'
Some of the pink flowers can be altered with scribble sticks to have them more accurately pick up the mauve tone that the pink lettering has.
