A Touch of Elegance

Hi everyone! I want to share a design that I made with my daughter's fifth grade graduation photos. I knew that I wanted something elegant for this one & loved the beautiful butterflies from the Urban Lily "Bliss" paper. However the colors just didn't go with the photos that I had taken. The perfect solution was to cut them out and use them on another sheet of Urban Lily that did match! I chose the "Bloss" paper for the background and then just adhered several butterflies onto the page and bent their wings a little for more dimension and to make them appear to be in mid flight. I love the way it turned out! Urban Lily papers are perfect for paper piecing and can be used in so many different combinations. Give it a try for yourself!
