Scrap around the world.



This mood board at Scrap around the world got me thinking...............butterflies and bling! 

and the 3rd challenge at Counterfeit Kits is
Challenge #3:  Use an idea previously saved!

Here is an old canvas I own.

and I found this idea on pinterest

Webster's pages Trendsetter Shadowbox!
I'm a good one for saving ideas and never putting them into practice.

      After painting it white, I misted it with turquoise
Next, I adhered bling and I added lace, including a strip of white lacy braid. 
       I fussy cut around some butterflies and glued them along the edge of the lace.
I found a photo of my daughter and added it.
The finishing touch is a bow from American Crafts.
