Inspired by my new friends over at Papers and Pixels, I've decided to have a try at digital scrapbooking ('digiscrapping'). After all, I've been manipulating digital images to use as backgrounds for my quilled cards for many months now, and it feels like a logical step forward.
Maggie May Designs as the vehicle for some of my favourite butterfly photographs. I've called the finished design 'Butterfly heaven', and I'm really pleased with all the bright summery colours - I could certainly do with a break from the gloomy days of winter right now!
However, I certainly don't intend to turn my back on quilling. In fact, I've decided that any digiscrap layout I create in future will contain at least one quilled motif as a signature item. In this piece, I've added a little quilled butterfly in the top right hand corner.
This project has been great fun to do, and I can't wait to experiment further - but I've got plenty more quilling ideas in mind for 2011, too. Who knows what the New Year will bring?
