you these? Well it was to make this…
When I thought of this idea, I didn’t know about our trip (it was a surprise) but I’m so glad I made it as it will be so useful to carry lotions, books etc.
In my humble opinion, I felt the bag looked so pretty with just the butterflies, but I’m really loving all those bright colours out in stores right now and decided to try a little colour blocking using my faithful DecoArt paint, mixed with fabric medium.
If you have been following my blog for a while, you might have read a few times that I’m linearly challenged. Meaning I cannot draw a straight line to save my life. Here is proof #1056. 🙁
The butterflies are painted using the technique shown here. I then embroidered the body of the butterfly with black thread right onto the bag. I also embroidered the antennae of the butterflies.
Here I am doing an awkward little foot pose, but don’t you love the contrast of the teal and the yellow?
Did I mention I am loving the bright colours in stores?! I wore this shirt with boyfriend jeans, a little neon pink cincher belt and nude wedges. I also wore a little straw fedora with a messy side braid. But why am I telling you all this? Well, for the last several weeks, I have been posting outfit inspiration albums and talking a bit about fashion trends over on my FB page and I thought it would be neat if I posted my own outfits for the week (maybe?).

Skin well being requires sustenance sometimes. Standard spa treatment prompts the shining and sound skin. That is most likely the motivation behind why body spa is so well known among ladies.Visit full body massage near me
