When I returned, I made a quick sketch and converted it into a simple parchment pattern.
This I then traced, embossed and coloured with pencils, lightly on the reverse.
I sponged the background with distress paints and stamped some magic tape with an Artistic Stamper Script stamp. The seam binding was stamped with the same stamp and coloured with promarkers.
The whole thing was stitched together with Grandma's Singer and a butterfly was made with film and fibres and stamped.
I added some glitter to give the impressions of the sun coming through the branches and a few beads for accents.
