Guest designing at Color Combos Galore

The Stash Girls were invited to guest design for the awsom site Colour Combos Galore.
I am sure many of you already know it, but it is a weekly challenge site that provides the most succulent of colour combinations!

This is the gorgeous combo to work with this week.

My take on this weeks challenge is a dream in pink, that very nearly turned into a nightmare...!
How much is too much, and how much is enough,...that was my problem...LOL!
Still, a lot of distressing and painting and crinkling of paper.
I wanted to achieve a lot of texture.

The theme, apart from the palette, this week is butterflies. I was lucky to have these unscrapped photos of Beatrice from this spring when we went to London. We spent a whole maevellous day at the fantastic Natural Science Museum. I don't know who had the most fun but I know we both enjoyed it immensely!!

Outside the museum they had a temporary exhibition of tropical butterflies. I know I enjoyed that more than my daughter. As I explain in the Swedish journaling she thought they looked ugly close up.

The photo with the blue of the butterfly showing through was edited in Picasa.

I used different Thickers for my title. Flowers are Prima, with the exception of some smaller one that I made.

I tried to count the layers. In one place I found I had used eight or possibly nine layers. I had so much fun....

I always like to photograph my layouts with a bit of sunshine. I find it makes for such great shadows........
