Dream Of Butterflies by Guest Designer Pam Bray

 I am so excited to share with you that I am the August Guest Designer

for Gina's Designs Lasercuts.

If you love chipboard, all I can say is Gina's Designs is the place to go!

 I decided to take the House Shrine House and create a Dream of Butterflies House using lots of Gina's Designs chipboard and Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection.

 Paint the scallop borders from the Banner Border Strip Lasercuts using DecoArt Inc Media Patina Green Antique Cream, dry. Paint over the top with DecoArt Inc Media Quinacidone Gold, dry... this will give you that antique look.

 Spray pieces with DecoArt Inc White Shimmer Spray, dry.

 While the pieces are drying, prepare the House Shrine Box with Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers.

Fussy cut butterfly frame from two pieces of paper from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe, place on pop dots and place to inside of prepared House Shrine Box.

 Cut prepared Banner Border Strip and place on edge of prepared roof.

 Add prepared Victoria Layered Banner to bottom of House Shrine Box.  

Paint Dream Word from the 10 Words Set with DecoArt Lace Chalky Finish, dry and apply DecoArt Inc Quinacidone Gold over top. Add to front of House Shrine Box. 

Paint one of the Leafy Branch with Birds using DecoArt Inc New Life Chalky Finish, dry. Highlight edges of pieces using Patina Green Antiquing Cream, dry. ***Here you can see how I did the roof with a piece from the Banner Border Strip.

Fussy Cut lots of the butterflies from the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Paper Collections, adhere together at the body leaving the wings to bend up.

Glue Moss on the roof and inside of House Shrine Box.

 Add a metal lantern to the front.

 Here is a closer look at this side of my Dream of Butterflies House.

I hope you have enjoyed my first Guest Design project for Gina's Designs Lasercuts.
