Mariposa Mini

Here is the pictures of the Mariposa Mini I made on my Ustream class. I know, I am way behind posting them. To be honest I was searching through my photos to see if I had remembered to post all my projects and found I few I missed so here is one of them. The cover has a die cut Tim Holtz butterfly. with several flowers and the mini title.

This mini was completed live with no preplanning. The paper was very beautiful and did not need much to make it any prettier. In fact sometimes it felt like adding anything would be too much. The inside cover has a Baroque photo matt with a tag hidden behind it. The page has Prima flowers as accents.

This page has a butterfly accent that also holds a scallop circle tag/journal spot.

A doily was used on this page to create a pocket. Glimmer mist was used to alter the color. I used one of my homemade Tammy Flowers to accent the page. And then added a cicle photo matt to the pocket.

The pocket on this page was created with a piece of acetate and some Stazon ink. The edge of the pocket was made using a Tim Holtz on the edge die.

I used the Tim Holtz bird cage die to create the pocket for this page. The tag tuck neatly into the cage and the bird is used as an accent for the page.

To create the pocket for this page I used another Tim Holtz die and die cut a keyhole near the bottom. The tag, when inserted has a key stamped that fits inside the keyhole cutout.
A large metal key was attached to the tag using a Garment pin and some beautiful jewel toned fibres.

I simply used a strip of paper to make this pocket and added a die cut keyhole as an accent. The tag slips behind the paper.

I repeated the technique for the last page and added some velum butterflies for the accents.

The back cover...not that you need to see it. I know some people decorate the back cover as well, I typically do not.
