Finding the right motivation

That is sometimes the problem.   The desire is there but an actual project to get your teeth into is missing.   So you spend a lot of time stroking your stash waiting for the butterfly that is your brain to settle on just one thing.

























Eventually you fancy is taken by a mask form and you get to work.    As this is a plastic form so stamping and heat embossing is not an option.  Found some Making Cards paper Saved for the watercolour type flowers.  Fussy cut some of these out to stick on with Modge Podge, before sticking the flowers on came across a couple of there things on my table a scrap of printed tissue and a floral wreath that was diecut in gold card some time in the past.   Sorted out the arrangement and glued it all down.   Starlight paint in silver on the edges and dragged in over the dry glue.   Decided this mask needed a bow and some butterflies.   Butterflies stamped in stayzon onto more scraps, this time vellum, and fussy cut.   The bow tied in green ribbon attached with silicone glue dot as were the butterflies.   Self adhesive gems and pearls to add a little bling.
