She Loves To Dream

Hi! Happy Monday! I'm so excited to be sharing my very first Noel Mignon post today.

Thank you all for the welcome, it's truly a DREAM to be here!

I just had the best time playing with the new July  Boardwalk kit.
My first thing to pick up and play with were the butterflies. I LOVE butterflies!
To add them to this layout of my beautiful daughter was a lot of fun:

I had the BEST time using the mist and the mask to color my butterflies.
Normally I'd leave them "natural" like they come, but after experimenting
with the mist & some inks I had on my desk...I knew they were perfect for my girl's page.

the dark blue makes me SO happy. LOVE how it draws the turquoise from her top right out.

I put the mask right on top of the largest wooden butterfly & sprayed.
After that, I dropped a few drops of a turquoise ink on top & this is the outcome.
I LOVE it.

here's one more shot of that butterfly:

Now I hope you have loads of fun creating with your July kit!
Don't be afraid to get those fingers dirty with the mist & get out some inks or paints
to add to the fun!

Thanks for letting me share with you today.
Again, it's MY pleasure to be here with all of you!
