Imagine-ck pep rally

Clique Kits Pep Rally   -  IMAGINE  -

Hello there,

You are just arriving from Enza's blog  ( the entire line up for today's Pep rally is located at the bottom of this post).

Welcome to my blog!  It is my first time taking part on the Clique Kits Pep Rally, and i am very excited to share one of the layouts i worked with this month's beautiful Sapphire kit.   

The Sapphire kit features the beautiful Pinkfresh Studio's Indigo Hills collection, and these papers are truly beautiful, that i wanted to incorporate them all into a layout.  My choice was to use a punch to create butterflies out of each of the papers in the kit.  I  also use the same punch to create butterflies from different color vellum papers.

Once i had all the butterfly cut-outs, i lightly glued each butterfly to  a vellum one.    A few ink splatters were then sprinkled on the mat starting at the bottom corner, and moving up in a diagonal. 

Next,I glued the picture (which i layered with some of the kit's exclusive cards), and using removable tape,  glued the layered butterflies following the path of the  ink splatters.

Using a paper piercing tool, i followed the path of the butterflies, and created a stitching guide by making holes in the mat.   I used gold and white embroidery thread to back-hand-stitch and secure the butterflies to the layout.

For the title, I used one of this month's Clique Kits exclusives to create the word imagine.   I cut the word on white card stock, and used a gold paint marker to color it.   I glued the word to the mat at the end of the stitched lines.  Here is the final layout:

I hope this serves as inspiration to pick your Clique Kits' Sapphire Kit;  there are still some left in the store, and also stop by to check the upcoming November kit -Swan Lake-.  Don't forget to comment on the blogs as you go along, you or a friend could win this month's kit...

Thank you for stopping by!
