Showing Detail

I love the little Maya Road butterfly chipboard album that comes in October's kit!

When I first pulled it out, I immediately noticed the detail on the butterfly that makes up the front cover. I wanted to alter it in a way where that detail would be visible.

Obviously covering it with paper was not an option. I could leave it natural but how much fun is that??!

I decided to paint it, drawing out the depth and contour of the butterfly.

For my paint, I chose a tapioca color. I gave it two coats.

Once the coats were dry, I took a sanding file and lightly when over the edges and across the top. This sanded off some of the paint on the outline, leaving the inside part of the butterfly in tact.

The dimension effect this gave was wonderful.

I hope you have time this week to get out your paints and play. Be sure to share your creations with us on-line at Mosh Posh!
