Paper Art in a Frame

Some of you will have heard of Christine Emberson, who is a very talented crafter.  Christine has a shop/studio here in Kent, and has also been on Create & Craft TV.  I have been lucky enough to attend a few of her classes.

The last class I attended was last month, Christine taught us to make a butterfly picture.  The most difficult part of this was choosing the colours and deciding which colours I was going to put with what butterflies!

All the shapes (squares and butterflies) were cut using Spellbinders dies.

Close up of some of the butterflies, you will see I added a few little gems.

Side view.

 I have since made another picture in a frame for my craft room.  The frame was bought in Ikea.
I had started this project, with my craft friends but once I had cut the clock out, I couldn't decided what to do.  So I put it to one side, and came back to it when I had an idea.
 The dies are all Spellbinders (except the lettering), these are as follows:-
Flowers - Delicate Asters
Clock - Cuckoo Clock
Flourish and the small butterfly - Jewels Flowers & Flourishes
Large Butterfly - Les Papillions
Label with wording on - Jar Labels
The letters for the words are from Cuttlebug Provo Craft - baby face.
Hope you like it, let me know if you would have done something different!
