Bloom Girl Inspiration with GDT Courteney!

Today we have GDT Courteney here to share this gorgeous project with us.
 Nothing like a great summers day to sit and play!!
 Everything about summer is beautiful here in Alberta!
Butterflies & Flowers being two of my favourite things so I just had to use the stunning

Luckily the shop that I work at had these amazing wooden butterflies. I seriously had been looking at them for weeks trying to figure out what I could make with them.
A coat of Gesso and some of Prima's beautiful Bloom Sprays. Lots of fun spraying and a whole bunch of drying!  I got the design I was looking for! Stand out amazing color with a beautiful shine!
Coloring is definitely my favourite part of all my Bloom Girl creations and this project was no exception. This time I chose my water color pencils. With so many butterfly's you can use so many colors!!!
Adding some of Prima's "Say it in crystals" and Flower vines was just the icing on the cake.
 So much fun!
Once everything was dry I layered the wooden butterflies on top of each other. Once layered I decided you couldn't have a butterfly without intenia so I curled some of Prima's wire around a paint brush and slowly pulled the wire off. Ending up with the perfect pair of intenias.
I hope you all enjoy!!!!

Have a great day!
