More Than Words/Scrapbook Boutique Oct challenges

The challenge this month at More Than Words is 


I'm also using the mood board for the October challenge at Scrapbook Boutique. Butterflies are the ultimate symbol for 'change'.

And here is my page-

My inspiration for using mint green was this month's 'Just Add Paper' kit from D'Lish Scraps, as well as the gorgeous mint 'Ombre Sky' paper I used for my background ( The Happy Life by Kim Watson).

My title 'grow' is inspired by the 'change' challenge word -  a reminder to never stop changing for the better.

I've used sprays, paint splatters, stamping and of course paper layers. I've used some items from the October D'Lish Scraps Just Add Paper Kit. 

To colour my wood veneer butterflies I have started with acrylic paint, then added a layer of Colour Blast colour paste, inked then stamped over the top. I've used stamps from Kaisercraft and Viva Las Vegastamps! I also punched some smaller butterflies from paper.

I've finished off with some word strips from Flutterby Designs, sequins and some glitter glue dots.
