change

It’s so inspiring each time to see all the other great designs in the Q&L Challenge over at the Craft Barn (click here to see for yourself) and to receive honest and motivating comments.
Thanks to all who take the time to visit my blogspot and leave a comment, truly appreciated.

For challenge #7 we were given the words change and/or truth, I came across this quote: "if nothing changes there would be no butterflies"
No doubt possible that that was the quote for me.

Recently I bought these coasters



I didn't buy them to put glasses on however, but to use them as stencils.
And this works very well indeed.



I added some stamping, also using the coasters this time as a stamp. 
Last week me and my 4-year old son did some stamping with corks, and I discovered I liked the texture, so I made these acrylic flowers with them.
Added a flock of butterflies and then I just needed to add the quote, I had cleaned of the coasters after spraying on a piece of scrap and believe it or not but the petals were just the right amount for the words of the quote. As finishing touch a button in the centre  of the flower and done.
