Plant Whimsies!

Jen Martakis has created the sweetest digital kit for spring: Celebrate Spring. It was perfect for sprucing up a little plant I was giving as a gift and was so easy to do.

I loved the whimsical butterflies in the kit. I opened them up in PSE, and copied a bunch of them, varying their sizes. I also loved the tag and “spring” graphic and created my own little spring tag. I printed all the elements out, cut them out, and attached a length of wire to each one with a glue dot.
Then, the real fun begins as you wrap and shape the wire to simulate the fluttery path of a butterfly.  I love this so much, and it looks really really nice in my sun room, that I just may keep it for myself!

and leaving you with this lovely picture of spring  . . . a field near my house:

  1. I sooo need to go to that daffodil field. I grew up in WA state where these things grew. LOVE what you did with that little plant, what an adorable way to give a little gift.

  2. What a lovely gift- really like the whimsy of the butterflies!
    Okay I have to say that the red layout with the Jenni Bowlin dasmask is just stunning. That happens to be my all time favorite pattern paper of hers. You did a magnificant job!!! Hope all is going well for you-- great blog by the way!
