I first printed a ledger page, then printed a butterfly directly on top... I used the Tim Holtz, old page Distress Ink on the edges. I used my permanent adhesive cartridge in my xyron to adhere the butterfly ledger print to old sheet music. Then I used my removable cartridge to adhere the collage to the frame... This way I can change my mind, and I will. I can see leaves in autumn, glitter snow scenes in winter... I sanded some of the paint off the frames for a vintage look. They are very similar to a large print I have hanging in my living room. Now that one large butterfly will have company.
Now for a word from our sponsors... Not really, but if you are not familar with the Xyron, it's life changing to a crafter like myself. Changing the cartridges is easy and quick. No need to use spray adhesive, glue sticks or liguid glue. On paper it's perfect. The distress ink pad from Tim Holtz is a must have for paper crafting. One swipe and instant old paper. Many of the tools designed for scrapbookers have made their way to my work table. I can't imagine not having a paper trimer, decorative edge scissors or the Aleene's Box Maker in my tools. The box maker deserves it's own post someday, it's that handy. Hope you liked this little project. Enjoy this beautiful day.
