my project I was so lucky to be able to create during my vacation week so work on it outside which made the drying process really fast.

I started working on one side of a sheet of water colour paper using DecoArt paints in warm colours, stamped along the edge and then flipped over and repeated on the other side using cool colours. then it was just a matter of fussy cutting the image out and layering them

I then cut a mini album (https://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/658982/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-album-mini)from matboard, sewed the outer edges, stamped my quote and butterfly and now it was just a matter of assembling.

I decided to add some white pen marks and pop dotted each layer before attaching to my book. so here you have it.. my finished project waiting to be filled / given away!
