Magnolia-licious Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to our SPRING BLOG HOP at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog!!

If you are arriving from beautiful TAMARA then you are on the right track, if not please go back to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and you can see the line up of our talented Design Team.

For the occasion I made a canvas using a ton of spring flowers and the big Magnolia Butterfly.  I wanted to create a something carefree and full of color to celebrate new life and all the blooms that are coming out in Spring.

I hope you are counting the tulips here on this first photo!!  

Basically I used a Prima watercolor canvas and Prima water color crayons to create the background. Then I glued flowers and chipboard onto it with some painted cardboard. Lastly I had fun with distressed inks and splattered them onto the canvas.

The butterfly is water colored with the Elegant Writer pen and then I applied modge podge onto it so that it is stiff and able to stand without falling over.

Now for your next stop, HOP over to the super talented...
