Hi Ladies, Thanks for waiting!

On page 1 after you finish painting the background the next step is to paint or stickle the little white buds on the branch. Any flower color will do, red, purple, magenta etc. After coloring the buds attach the UTEE dipped roses with glue dots (cut the wires off). Set the branch aside and paint the grungeboard hinges with antique bronze crackle paint. Ink over the top of the air dried hinges with chestnut roan and add some black along the edges. Attach with mini brads. Add the 4 pearls to the page. You can now glue dot the branch onto the page. Attach the bling to the lower right corner of the frame and stick the large 3 layer flower over the top. ** To complete the flower after dipping layer the 3 flowers together and heat the flowers to allow the to melt together. Place the glass pebble in the center and while applying a little heat with the heat gun, press down slowly to lower the center of the flower.** and the small flower goes in the opposite corner with a rhinestone in the center. To complete the paper butterfly, cut a thin strip of pop dot foam the size if the butterfly body and attach the 2 pieces together. One on top of the other. use stickles along the body and along the wings. You can use a little left over bling or gold stickles to create a little trail. Lastly, distress ink the edges of the page any brown or plum color is fine. Remember to use your craft mat when you use the distress inks, you get a much nicer result. Use the journaling area to write whatever you want with a brown marker and that's it for page 1.
