Ashley Marie is Making Memories' guest designer. Ashley created two projects to share.
*Trace the inner and outer part of your frame on the top part of the 12x12 Silhouette Varnish paper where the words are.
*Cut out what you have traced and adhere over top of your frame (Tip: if your cutting seems a little jagged or you want a more perfect edge after you adhere this on, use a sanding tool around your edges and it will look perfect!).
*After that ink around the edges with a gold ink.
*Then cut out a couple flowers & 2 butterflies from the rest of your 12x12 Sienna Writ Silhouette Varnish page and adhere the flowers toward the bottom right of your frame.
*Next take the Butterflies Brun Antique Reverie and choose 2 butterflies, adhere one at the bottom next to the flowers and one toward the top right of your frame.
*Then take the 2 butterflies you cut out and adhere 1 on top of your butterfly next the flowers and the other butterfly beside it.
*Next take the gems from the gems and brads Brun antique and place in the center of all you butterflies and if you would like you you can draw antennas on the butterflies as well.
