the alphabet paper was the first thing chosen for this piece because of my love for letters and all the endless possibilities they represent. the rose, buds and leaves are painted on. the butterfly is part of the scrapbook paper i chose for this piece but the placement was all mine. i wanted it close to the flower to bring a lot of attention to it. did you happen to notice the subtle shading of the flower stems? love when that can happen. i added the love notes sticker for depth and dimension. all in all i'm pretty happy with the progression of this little framed piece and the way everything is coming together so nicely. isn't it great when a plan works so well?
