Sarah's Butterfly Garden Collection Layout

Hello again Meg's Garden fans! Sarah here to share a layout created with the absolutely stunning Butterfly Collection papers and embellishments from the Meg's Garden store. I started off with The Butterfly Garden by Night 12x12 paper for the base, added a coat of clear gesso and then did some masking with black graphite texture paste. Next, I built up layers using pieces from the 6 x 6 papers in The Butterfly Collection Mini Pack as the foundation for my son's first school photo from Junior Kindergarten this year! I fussy cut some butterflies from the mini papers and added some pieces of white floral wire to them as antennae.  I added flowers, fibres, ribbon and a bead (added to a pearl stickpin from my stash) from the Meg's Bundles Temptation in Blue embellishment pack. I also fussy cut some text circles from the 12 x 12 Cut & Create Ephemera page to use as embellishments and as the centre for the dark blue flower. Finally, I finished off the layout with some blue mist mixed with water.
Here are some close-ups!
