My friends daughter Amy had her bedroom decorated for her birthday so I decided that for her present I would create a canvas for her wall. The flowers in the top left hand corner are from my favourite Vintage Vogue set available from April in the new mini catalogue. I used some of the crystal brads for the centres.

Her mum gave me some paint and I decided on stripes to match her room. I then chose the Bold Brights family to create an array of butterflies down the right hand side. I curled every butterfly to make it more 3D and then used dimensionals to lift them off the canvas

I also used the you make life a beautiful thing stamp from the A Beautiful Thing stamp set.

I put her name inside some bottle tops and mounted them on scalloped circles

Here is Julies arty farty angle. I hope that Amy likes it when I give it to her this evening, it was great fun to make and looks really effective on the wall!

Am now off to Brownies, we are having a race night this evening so all the Brownies are going to be dressed up to the nines drinking virgin cocktails - wish me luck!
