Blue and White.

Such a beautiful classic colour combination which I have wanted to create a butterfly artwork in, but always found it difficult finding the right paper. By chance, I came across a small pad of scrapbooking paper at Spotlight, which was perfect! The right colours and the right geometrical patterns.

It looks great in my lounge room next to my new (second hand) Ginger Jar and blue jug - both from the Waverley Antiques Bizzare....I so love that place!! But I'm actually going to be giving this one to the shop to see if it will sell, with the intent on making some more.

Next on the to-do list, is a travelling style made from a French book I found in the Flinders Op Shop, and perhaps another Mills and Boon one, as I have sold the other.

...I just need to find some time.

Gorgeous, Stormy! I'm thinking I might need to track down that scrapbooking paper for a project I have in mind.

Thanks for sharing, I'm sure it will sell in no time at all.

Lovely picture, I love the colours, I did a similar thing and made a set of four, I found a sheet of pop out butterflies at the local scrapbooking shop.

Thank you Ladies!

Kym, set aside a good few hours if you go to the Waverley Bizzare, and wear warm clothes!! It's freezing, but so worth the the trip.

Hi Stormy,
I have the same ginger jar as you so now thinking I may have to put in an order for the blue butterflies.
