Hello Lovely Butterflies!
One of the questions I get a lot about the challenge is: 'Is it too late to join in?'
The answer is NO! A big NO! You can start any time, any day, with any challenge you fancy! Just... START! That is the most important thing about it. Don't think about it, just do it!
And to make sure you're in, here's a new challenge, this week lead by the lovely Jane, one of our Butterfly Squad Creative team members.
Now if you're up for it, you too can share your spread with the world! Share it on instagram using the hashtag #aladchallenge or #francepapillonchallenge. If you don't use instagram but would still like yours to be shared, mail me your final photo HERE.
In case this is the first time you read about this challenge, check out the first blog post on the subject here, where I explain what it is all about.
You can join the fun at any time on the France Papillon and Creative Butterflies facebook group, where lots of alad spreads and in between layers get shared, which will definitely help your mojo to be inspired!
Spread a little sparkle
With all that is happening around the world today I believe we need some sparkle and magic more than ever before!
When I consider what the word sparkle means to me I think of two main things:
1) Creating physical sparkle using products and items that glitter, shimmer or shine. I know I have a good selection of sparkly mediums in my stash as I am a bit of a magpie!
2) Sparkle in the form of happiness. Creating happiness for ourselves or others through positive words or actions.
With my spread for this week’s challenge I am going to be focusing on both of these aspects.
A starting point for me will be to look at the products I have in my stash that could create sparkle in my spread, these will probably include glitter, embossing powder, paints and foil leaf, the main problem will be choosing which to use! I am also going to think about what I love that could make others happy and incorporate those into my layers. I am already thinking that colour is something that makes me and many others very happy so this may form the basis of my first layer.
However you decide to start and include that sparkle I would love to see your layers and finished spreads.
Please spread a little sparkle this week!
I share all my dailies on my Patreon page as well, where for $1 per month (not per layer, per month!)
you get the why and how behind my choices for each and every layer!
