I started out knowing I wanted to use pictures of our younger selves and use butterflies. I had a mask in mind, (which is actually a cake stencil!) and so I started with it and Glimmer Mist. I then inked all my edges with distress ink and splattered each page with a Stampin UP! air tool and a marker.
For the large element on the right side I decided to use a butterfly to follow the theme of the page.
I looked at a butterfly embellishment I had and just sketched out by hand the shape I wanted. I then traced it onto my pattern paper and again onto a piece of cardstock. On the cardstock layer I then hand drew the details and used an exacto knife to cut out every other "vein" on the wings. I also added pop dots to this layer, allowing the pattern below to show through and give it some depth.
Afterwards I added in thickers and stickers.
Next I placed my lace that runs horizontally across the page. I made it slightly pleated and then added my punched butterflies to it, the rhinestones are already on the lace.
To finish it off I added in a few chipboard butterflies that actually have acetate layers over them, some rhinestones here and there and added a sentiment to the butterfly instead of journaling.
