happiness

Another post for today☺  I'm here to show you my LO for the challenge at ARTastic!!  As well as the inspiration picture we have the added criteria of insects - either in your photo or as an embellishment.
Here's what I've come up with:
 This photo was taken by my oldest boy who loves to walk around with my camera and take pictures.  I think he did such a great job to capture this lady bug on a 'bird of paradise' flower.
I've kept the LO rather simple; creating a cluster of embellishments with the tags and also adding in some misting.  Here are some close-up's:
 ... chipboard from Scrap FX - painted white and I've added some Kindy glitz and marker pens to add colour ... Kaisercraft flowers and twine ...
... American craft thickers and my little quote...

And here is the inspiration painting:



We would love to see you play along this month - this challenge is great for those scenic or nature photo's you may have.  There's prizes for the winning entries ☺  Check out more inspiration from the Design Team at the ARTastic blog.  
Thanks again for coming by and hello to all my newest followers ☺
