I have been a little stressed out the passed few days. So, this weekend I decided I was going to only make things that I wanted to make in my craft room. I have been making a lot of stuff for my wedding, but I really needed a break from that.
Here is what I came up with.
I had planned to make a cherry tree spread, but it never really comes up how I wanted it to. I started off making my branch this time. I was not too happy with the way the butterflies came out, specially the ones at the bottom. So I just had to do something to make them a little better.
I used glitter glue to enhance them and I was much happier with the results. What can I say, I love glitter, hehe.
I wanted to make sure the background colors for the branch itself was lighter than the rest of the colors. I wanted to almost look like the branch was lit up. The water-soluble oils are nice to cover a large area, so I used them on all of the background colors.
For the branch itself I used the black from my faber-castell pencils, which I love. They give me a lot more of control over the details than the oil pastels. Maybe there is a way to achieve the same with the oil pastels, but I have not figured it out yet.
The small flowers are from +Tori Langellier . It was part of the scrapbooking supplies she gave me when I stared out.
I used acrylic pink pearl from Martha Steward to color them, since most of them had other colors.
I also used gold Rub'nBuff on the honeycomb stencil at the corners, to make them stand out from the rest.
This is the final result.
I also added some encouraging words to the branch to lift my spirits. I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you for visiting!
