All Dressed Up Facebook Challenge - Theme Hearts

Here's my entry for the All Dressed Up Facebook Challenge for February. 
The theme is hearts and I thought this little boho beauty would fit perfectly on this heart picture frame.
The image is called 'Flyaway Butterfly' and is available from All Dressed Up.
She is so cute !
I found the cream frame in Aldi for £2.99.
I liked the moulding and thought it was pretty.
So, I used a Santoro Deco Mache paper with a lovely swirly script pattern to cover the frame then hand painted the little lacey bits with my white Uni posca paint pen to highlight the moulding. 
I coloured the image using Promarkers, but paper pieced the dress. I had to use carbon paper to do this but I think it came out OK. The paper for the dress and the background are from the Fairy Belle Collection by Prima.  
I coloured 2 butterflies and cut them out to create to create a nice dimensional effect.
I love the way it came out !


  1. Lovely Caroline, you did a wonderful job of the frame and love how you explained how you did it all. The colours are very subtle and has created a lovely softness to the whole frame. :)
