Flourshing Spring Fence

Greetings!  Spring is around the corner and nothing says "Spring" quite like the beautiful Flourish Collection.  I've updated the use of this fun wooden picket fence to a functional note-holder by adding a large clothespin to the center of the butterfly.

To get started, I painted the base of the wooden planks with a turquoise acrylic paint and then cut the papers to size.  I inked around the edges with VersaMagic Turquoise Gem by Imagine Crafts.

After covering the butterfly with Flourish paper, I gave it a glittering with an iridescent glitter.  The top of it was embellished with felt flowers from my stash and a swirl of adhesive pearls by Want 2 Scrap.  To the center of the butterfly a large clothespin was added so that notes, photos or a to-do list can be clipped up.

I die-cut several small banner shapes and applied sticker alphas to spell out "spring".  A nice swath of ombre ribbon by May Arts was tied through the top for easy hanging.

Glad you've stopped by today!

  1. Does brighten the day. While the sun is out it is very cold outside, with snow and ice on the ground. Love seeing projects like this that brighten the day more.
