May

I finally finished my May page for the Craft Barn calendar challenge where the 2 prompts are magenta and flowers.
I started by pulling out my gelli plate and making a print using magenta acrylic paint and a flower mat.
Next I stamped different sizes of flowers on patterned paper, cut them out and attached them with eyelets to the page.
This stage was done a while ago but I just couldn’t decide on what to add in the center. Until yesterday, suddenly it dawned to me, why not just add the word May, simple, no?
So I wrote the word May, gave it an outline and added a glittery butterfly. All done.
