Quotation  DecoVl: Spread for BethA
Size 7" w x 3.5" h envelope page (each insert 3.25" x 3.25")

Beth supplied the cream toned cardstock ready folded to create her star book, as well as the lavender cardstock for the inserts.

I drew a butterfly image for the left insert and a sprig of flowers for the right on Arches text Wove paper, thermal embossed them with gold embossing powder, used my Tombows and moved the color around with iridescent medium. Painted the backgrounds with Dr Martin's Iridescent ink. Mounted the pages onto the lavender cardstock. I wrote the words with a Sakura purple gelly roll pen. Used a gold excel gel pen for the circle detail in the butterfly and the strokes of the flower.

Words Left Insert: Cut not the wings of your dreams for they are the heartbeat & freedom of your soul. Flavia

Words Right Insert: Everywhere I go I find a poet has been there before me. Sigmund Freud

On the flap of the envelope I wrote another quote with purple Zig marker in my funky style and accented a few of the letters with purple glitter. I used a beautiful oriental fuchsia/blue/purple with gold metallic paper for the background.

Words: Live a balanced life - learn some, & think some, draw a& paint & sing & dance & play & work every day some. Fulgham
