Simply Scrappin' DT project...
I had a mishap with the Jenni Bowlin yellow butterfly rubon...but sometimes a mishap turns into an opportunity...so did you ever decorate a homecoming float with THOUSANDS of pieces of tissue paper? Unfortunately, I did...and after coming across a butterfly shaped chipboard piece... I KNEW the tissue paper technique (technique used loosely) just might work!
If you are unfamiliar with the "technique"...cut squares or rectangles of tissue paper...stick a pencil in the center of the tissue and wrap the tissue around said pencil...dab the tissue covered eraser onto a glue stick and stick the tissue onto your chipboard...repeat a zillion times!
Oh, and the blue stuff on the sun...crepe paper...$1 a roll...pleat it...squish it...crumple it...LOVE IT!
Almost forgot, I found the "base" (AKA an old red hot plate holder) at Bayou Town Flea Market in Breaux Bridge for $1 - my lucky number!!!
Moral of this project... you just never know where you might find your next embellishment :)
