No, you are not seeing things. This Inspiration Wednesday was from a video from 2012. I watched it and loved the butterflies which were done by image transfer. I generally do not like to do image transfers but I think I may have fallen in love with the technique after trying it again. I have not done it in years, and I may be doing it more often. Anyway, to see the original video, click here.
For my page, I chose butterflies that were of course pink in nature. You can find them in my printables folder on Pinterest here. Here is what they looked like after transfering them to my page:
While the butterflies were pink and I incorporated pink on the edges of the page, I ended up drawing out the green in the butterflies for this page. I also chose to put artist words on these pages using a stencil and light modeling paste. I then added a tag with scripture, more stenciling, and something I found on the web. I just loved what it said about God being the first artist. It says:
"God created the universe and all that is in it. God is a creator, an artist. In fact, He is the first creator and the first artist. He had everything imaginable and unimaginable at His disposal when He created. It was a palette of raw materials and colors that He used to make what we see around us, what we don't see, and what we haven't seen yet. The wonders and beauty that came out of that palette are amazing and awe inspiring." — Holly McMurtry
Isaiah 40:28 (NLT) "Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of His understanding."
Jeremiah 51:19 (NLT) "But the God of Israel is no idol! He is the Creator of everything that exists, including His people, His own special possession. The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is His name!"
And underneath the typed tag, I stenciled the word 'artist' using light modeling paste. The video only shows stamping words but I chose to do some stenciling and glazing over it.Papers: butterfly printable from Pinterest
