I am taking you to Canada today, more precisely to Six Mile lake which is one of my favourite place to go to date... shame it's 2 hours north of where I am... I still go there once a year at least anyway, just to spend the day with my kids. It's so peaceful.
My patchwork is made with several squares of paper and photos sewn together. (Gio will be impressed, I even used the sewing machine ! lol). Very simple, but quite effective if you have several pictures to use.
Here's how I made it ...
I cut my pictures and papers (3"), inked the edges with Distress inks, glued them to the page and sewed them with the sewing machine.
I then stamped the butterfly, first on the papers (making sure to mask the square below or above)
I used the Sweet Poppy Stencil and white embossing paste to add the swirls
I stamped the butterflies on a white card, cut them out, and added them to the page, gluing only the body and lifting the wings off the page
Keep a few eyeshadow applicators in a box to ink up tiny alpha letters or die cuts.
Much easier than the Cut 'n Dry foam
