Last minute April project

You know what they say better late than never. Well I guess  technically I am not late, just last minute. So without further delay here is my April Journal page for Tim's 2013 April Tag.

I do not have the Metallic Distress Paints yet so I improvised and used some Lumiere paints instead. They did not blend quite as well, but I was still happy with the background.

I did not want to cover up too much of the background so I just stamped around the edges of the pages. I also did not have the tissue tape Tim used. I decided to use some gauze tape and make my own instead using a stamp from the Artful Tools set, Black soot distress stain, and some Lumiere paint.

The butterfly is cut from the Fanciful Flight die. I used glossy cardstock for the base and inked it with various colors of alcohol ink. The wings are Wendi Vecchi's Clearly for Art.

The metal flowers were just hanging out in my stash begging to be used. I colored them with the Distress Paints as Tim showed.

The last little detail was the words. I used the Alpha parts letters and the Grunge board letters. I painted the grunge board letters as Tim showed and then added some stamping over the top and a bit more black paint.

As always I thank you for stopping by and I hope you had a wonderful last day of April!
