Supplies: patterned paper (map and blue grid--TPC Studio; fussy-cut butterfly--7 Gypsies), green cardstock (DCWV), letter stickers (Basic Grey), shiny butterfly decal (Dufex), chipboard accent (DCWV), flowers (Petaloo), thread (DMC), wooden beads, assorted turquoise chip beads, 3M adhesive tabs, 3M liquid adhesive.
It all started last week, when I created the layout "Explore--Play" (above) for the latest Color Room challenge. The color palette was very natural, with shades of blue, green, and brown. I decided that I wanted to add some natural items to my page, to play up the natural beauty of the color scheme. So, I carefully removed the rhinestone centers from some Petaloo flowers and glued wooden beads in the flower centers. The wooden beads are left over from a necklace I created (see photo below) with beads from a few mixes from the Bead Box. (I mentioned their great bead mixes in yesterday's post.) To increase the beady goodness of the page, I also sewed a line of turquoise chip beads along the top of my photo strip.
