One Day At A Time

This is very much how I feel at the moment, taking one day at a time, trying not to get my knickers in too much of a twist over things in the future that I can not control! So today’s make is a reflection of me – Slightly scruffy and trying to be relaxed LOL!

I’ve used the lovely sentiment and flock of butterflies (is the collective term for butterflies a flock?) from the {Ippity} What Matters Most kit and I thought that as I have used Kraft card as a base that I would enter this card into the Gingersnaps Colour Challenge GC52 which is Kraft this month.


I’ve used a light layer of Gesso on a book page, stamped and embossed the image and then inked over the top.

You might have noticed that I am pretty much obsessed with altering book pages at the moment! But then I did find this wonderful old illustrated encyclopedia in a local charity shop for 50p, perfect for my new obsession!

Have a great book page altering day.

Kim

  1. Love the bright colour and I completely love using book pages too!

    The sentiment is something that I need to learn to live by too at the moment.

    And I'm pretty sure the collective name for a group of butterflies is a kaleidascope (although I'm unsure of the spelling) which is a fab name for such vibrant creatures.

  2. Kim, this is stunning! What a great color combo, and the white butterflies look amazing against the orange. I'm so glad you joined the Kraft challenge at Gingersnap Creations– this is really exceptional!

    Hugs,
    Linda

  3. Wonderful – the rich orange against the kraft background works so well! Thanks so much for joining in with this weeks Gingersnap Creations challenge!
