Thought we would have a bit of splashing around with paint, well a bit of dripping really! Also, the butterflies are from a new technique in Tim Holtz nnew book so I thought we could give them a go too. This is a place we visited last year when we went to Beverley in Yorkshire for the weekend. I saw this place on the map so off we set for a visit - it is near Bridlington. The gardens are really pretty and there are quite a very topiaries in the midde of flower beds.
First off you have to make your paint a bit runny and then drip it on from the top edge and let it run down the page. I tried not to get too messy doing this. Sorry about the colour of the brown butterfly, it really does look a bit more interesting than this - looks like a moth.
The butterflies are stamped and die cut and are layered with a coat of rock candy crackle paint which is left to dry, then distress stains are used to colour them
Finally I did some stamping with distressed stains and I was really pleased with how that turned out. Finished off with a bit of stencilling. Hope you like it and I will see you all next week. You will note that I have posted really early, this is because I'm buzzing off for a long weekend and hope it doesn't rain too much. See you all soon.
