It’s finally here!!! SPRING has sprung and I am celebrating!!!

I’ve had this idea dancing around in my head for awhile… a butterfly wreath… but it didn’t seem appropriate to create it mid-winter. I’ve been having a blast creating 6×6 canvas pieces, the size is perfect for all my card making dies, stencil and stickers. The wreath is formed from paper covered wire which I found at my local craft store along with Paper Twine by Maya Road.

It’s light and airy plus has that feel of Spring to me. I used the Prima paper pad for my collaged background along with a bit of tissue paper.  I pulled out a bunch of my dies including the Tim Holtz Movers and Shakers Butterflies which I cut out from book text, and the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Devonshire Butterfly cut from Bazzill Vellum.

The canvas came together pretty quickly and I shot a video of the process which you can see below or on our YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

  3. I really love this gorgeous canvas Shari…………. but then, I really love all that you do. The soft green has a very lovely calming effect.

  4. How pretty! Butterflies are my fav. Will have to try to make my own spring wreath using butterflies. Will have to fussy cut my butterflies as I have no die cut machine yet

  5. This is a beautiful canvas, very spring-like! I could use a little spring right now. LOL Unfortunately, today in Nova Scotia, it looks more like Christmas than the first day of spring:(
    BUT, it could always be worse…

  6. Very pretty! But I’m sorry to say, it’s hard to think about Spring on a day when we got 4″- 6″ of snow and accidents galore on the news tonight! I hope you pretty Spring canvas will bring us some good news in the weather department!
