woyww - butterflies and text ... again you say.

I have to admit to loving butterflies and they always find their way into a lot of my projects.  I also noticed that I use script or text when I am working with butterflies.  No logic or reason they just seem to go together for me.   I wonder what other woyww find themselves using again and again.  

So just for a change I made another ATC accordian book.
Yep, when I make something I like I just keep doing it.  Finally an ATC where I tried out the hammered chipboard technique.  Then I noticed I had used the butterfly and text background again.
I really need to get out a bit more.
I'm off to see what other woyww's have on their desk.

  1. Too many butterflies? I really don't understand what the problem is. :-)

    Your book cover is gorgeous!

  2. Actually, I LOVE that butterfly and the ones on your desk, too. I don't think you can have too many butterflies, and when I find a certain style, I try to stick with it. Happy WOYWW from a non-butterfly # 3.

  3. No such thing as too many butterflies. How big is that one? It is quite lovely and I like it being used with the text background. Keep making the ATC books, they are so nice!

  4. Ooh, that ATC book is just fabulous. I really don't like butterflies in actual life, but I LOVE using them on scrapbook pages and seeing them on cards. So cute!

  5. Nothing wrong with being hooked on butterflies and text. Butterflies are so feminine, or I feel that when I am card making.
    That is a lovely cover for your book, really pretty and most delightful. Love the atc too - hammered chipboard technique? Must look it up.
    Don't forget to call in and check out my blog candy - it closes late tonight and I should be drawing tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Neet 29

  30. i get stuck in a faces rut

    but then I think if it is beautiful rut why get out (of the rut) more?

    I think your beautiful butterfly's and text can stand to be frequently used...stay in and enjoy your rutting if you knwo what i mean?

    I go a bit desk crazy on a weds...forgive me

  31. I love the butterflies you used! I think its so nice when you have something that continues throughout your projects, kind of like a signature!

    Thank you for your lovely comment. Hopefully my flowers are coming today, but they aren't here yet!

    Happy WOYWW!

  32. That ATC is stunning and I agree text and butterflies do seem to fit together well. As for the one on your desk ...I so love it ...where is this going to rest.

  33. I think text and butterflies are made for each other:)

  34. Oooh, another butterfly fiend! Love your butterflies and text together - lovely ATC, and I really like your accordion book too. What is the hammered chipboard technique? Any special hammer? It looks great! Glad you like my butterfies, and I hope you manage to get the glue in Oz, as it's awesome - you don't need much and it gives a good strong bond, really quickly too. It's great for boxes. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #35

  35. I'm with you, butterflies and text go well together. My go-to thing of late has been the image on a punched circle or oval with a larger punched circle or oval layered behind that. I was out of town for 2 weeks without those punches so I did get a chance to get out of that. Funny how there are things we gravitate to. Very nice looking ATC book!

  36. They are beautiful - just go with the flow and enjoy!!

  37. Those are both beautiful projects! The butterflies lend themselves so well to text that it is hard to resist. And with ATC's as nice as yours, why would you stop? Dani28

  38. Gorgeous projects! I never thought of hammering chipboard! I find I usually use what is on my desk first. Of course it is usually full of stuff, so there is always a feast of choice lol.

    BTW TH rulers are amazing. I love the piercing holes too. Thanks for stopping by :D #27

  44. Nothing wrong with butterflies and text, especially when you always make them look so glorious together.
    I'm loving text at the moment, it's finding it's way onto everything.

  46. "really need to get out more"....

    Don't we all?

    Lovely work though - maybe butterflies and text are your signature?

    Thanks for stopping by!

  47. I love butterflies and text too! That ATC is so clever that I didn't realise it wasn't a normal beautiful book!

  48. You've got a good range here. I like to try a few. Love the butterfly book.
    My faves would be Pritt which I get from Bellbird Paperarts down here, Diamond Glaze and Weldbond. I bought some stuff called Plexiglue at Paperific. It's supposed to remain flexible and doesn't dry the paper so much that it buckles. I use tape a lot because of the buckling so it will be interesting to see.
