My submission for the Inspiration Avenue creative challenge this week - our task was to create something inspired by "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue".
The butterfly image is an old theme for me, which I return to a lot; as well as being beautiful, in some cultures butterflies are thought to represent the human soul.
I love the look of old things generally, and I've given the the little luggage tag here an aged feeling with some distress ink.
The butterfly image I've used is a vintage one, so I'm counting that as both old and borrowed!
I've used a new technique for me - some rather fab self-adhesive paper from Letraset - to transfer the butterfly image to the doily.
And - well, the blue part is self-explanatory really!
I've added this little canvas to my etsy shop.
You can find all this week's submissions here.
I hope that the old year has left you with wonderful memories, and that the new one will bring you everything you hope for.Wishing everyone a wonderfully happy and creative 2012!
