Everyone is complaining about how the weather is so "hot! hot! hot!" and that's my latest layout for Made With Love.  Hopefully these pictures of my girl playing in the fountain at Bugis Junction will offer cooling relief.  I certainly felt good playing with some Sizzix dies, and Distress Inks and a stencil from Ranger.

Featuring a hidden journalling spot revealed by sliding away the photo on the bottom left.

The colours and texture reminds me of batik ...

While I was trying to conjure more cooling thoughts, I got wondering how many butterflies would it take to generate enough wind.  Sheets of real wood die-cut into butterflies.  The butterfly body is wrapped with twine and topped with a seed bead.
Behind the butterfly, the background was painted with white acrylic paint and the Dylusions Dotted Flower stencil from The Crafter's Workshop designed by Dyan Reaveley of Ranger.

As for the title, it's gesso on paper tape using a homemade stencil featuring the Cherish Sizzlit alpha set.  The font is sleek and funky, and it's on sale at MWL.  It's a very good deal since the set comprises both upper and lower case as well as numbers and punctuation - a 35-piece set in a storage box.

Sizzix dies used:
657209 Mini Butterflies Mover and Shaper Magnetic Die
657495 Butterflight One the Edge Die
654546 Cherish alpha set
