Wings of Magic - Paper Garden

It's summer now! ...well, the weather is anything but summery, but it's June at least. And here's my first June project for you! As it's Friday, it has a project video as well. This first project is done using Paper Garden supplies and I've made some ATCs. 

My first idea when making these was to use the stamp set I have from Paper Garden. The second idea was to make the background out of old postage stamps. This then limited the project type a little. Well, I could have done a bigger canvas, true, but as stamps are small, I found it easier to limit the project size and maybe make a couple of them rather than one big one. Please see the video below and tell how I did!

As you could see, I added a layer of white gesso on top of the stamps. Like I say in the video, even though I liked the look, it seemed a bit over powering compared to the focal point. A thin layer of gesso dulled the layer a little, just enough to let the butterflies pop up more.

As always, these ATCs are ready to be swapped or sent out. Just let me know you'd like to have one either by an email or a DM in Instagram! I send worldwide. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a sunny weekend - the first one of many in June, I hope!
