The ATC Shadow Box fits a standard ATC in the center of the frame, I covered the shadow box with tissue paper and note paper then spritzed with Ginger Ale Smooch. I painted the heart white then sprayed it with the Ginger Ale Smooch sprtiz too!

Freedom ~ Jan ATC & Tutorial ~ Dusty Attic

Welcome to my first Dusty post for 2013. The theme for this months ATC Challenge is Fairies & Flutterbies. These butterflies will soon be available in the next new release.

Flying Chipboard Butterflies – Tutorial

I wanted to create some butterflies with the appearance that they were flying.
This is an easy technique to create movement in your chipboard butterflies.
I have used the new Butterflies #3 that are coming out in the next release.

Step 1: I have used 2 medium and one of the small butterflies.

Step 2: Soak the butterflies in water and separate into 3 layers so 3 butterflies then become 9

Step 3: While the chipboard is still wet curl up the edges of the butterflies, then dry with a heat gun. The heat gun will help the edges curl a little more too.
Step 4: Once dry I have coloured them with Smooch Spritz – Citrus Tickle, then painted the edges of the butterflies with white paint.
Step 5: Use two layers of the butterflies for the medium butterflies. To create the body take a piece of craft wire and add some beads.
Step 6: Then fold the wire around the butterfly going between the antlers and around the back.

Step 7:
To Make the small butterflies I have used each separate layer individually and gently poked the wire through  the middle of the chipboard. Add some PVA glue as you do this to hold it in place.
