Take Flight

I was playing around with some photo effects and I love how this particular shot turned out. The colours matched the papers from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden perfectly!

I used lots of pop-up dots on this layout, for lots of dimension.

I layered the butterflies and turned up their wings to give the illusion of flight.

I also wanted to add some textures, so I used pearl strands, ribbons, and crystals on the layout. And I love how the wood alphas and bird cage add both dimension and texture. I also used Tattered Angels' glimmer mist in Iridescent Gold on the butterflies, leaves, and wood die-cuts, to give them added shimmer.

Thanks for dropping by! :)
