Project Monday

Hello, and welcome to another Project Monday! feels so great to get back into the swing of things after all the holiday fun.  I had a really nice break and just played as much as possible.  It felt so great to just let go and enjoy myself.....I hope you had fun too : )

For my project this week I decided to do a layout.....since I hadn't done one in like a month.  After thinking about my word (for 2011, and photo from our last photo prompt) and where I am right now, here is what I came up with:

*Balance* 2011 Love

The idea behind this layout started with me looking at my photo and thinking about what I really like right wise.  Well, I really love black and white stripes so, I decided that white background paper layered with black paper strips was a great start.....and it just kinda took off from there.  I added pink spray paint for an additional feel and texture of stripes.  And for some reason I am really digging an orange / golden feel to things right now, so I added the butterflies and then layered everything else with it.  To finish it off, I used gold thread to sew it all together.

Here's a closer look.....

And all the pieces I used to put my layout together.....
