Need some inspiration?
Some time we have lots of inspiration to craft and work, some time the Muse going for a vacation leaving us behind... In 'Frida and Numa' we had an inspiration swap. We were asked to make something that will inspire our partner. I know I always get inspired by a good word... So, I went
'quote hunting'. I found this quote on a card and I fell in love with the wise words:
"Happiness is like a butterfly,
the more you chase it, the more it will elude you,
but if you turn your attention to other things,
it will come and sit softly on your shoulder..." (Thrneau)
I bought the card and cut it to strips, paint the canvas blue and using 'Tim Holtz' mask I added some interest. Using an old book I got from the second hand shop I cut a flower. For the center I used a big circle brad and a flower brad over a black card stock. I stamped some butterflies and used a glitter black embossing powder to give them a shine.
Hope my partner will find it inspirational as I did.
