A Few Butterfly's for Spring.....


It's really starting to feel spring-ey around here. I know we still have a lot of winter ahead....but warmer days get me thinking of spring & hey....my spring bulbs are popping up. So what better way to kick it off than with some pretty butterflies.

I really love butterflies. So whimsical & free. I tried to do just that here in my own way of course. Using small vintage bling....vintage ledger.....some old German paper that I LOVE & of course I had to put in a few vintage scraps of French papers. Really what ever I could find in the scrap box.
I can't get enough of this bubbled edge on the solder. I love it. You all know how much I just adore polka dots....well now we have it on the solder. It is fun to do too. I love how it looks....sorry the photo isn't too good but you get the idea I hope. So...I am happy as a lark on a wire or a butterfly on the breeze.....and guess what....I finally got my Christmas decorations put away! So now I can just create till my hearts desire until the weather really turns spring like....& then I will hit the gardens! I hope your day is artfully creative & joyful! Blessings!

These are adorable,what do you use to seal them in? Is it resin? I am just beginning to play around with making some jewellery pieces for my daughters and I just don't know how to seal/top them into something so it looks like glass. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh yeah I've finally come out of lurking to ask hehehe
