Tuesday Trigger: Watercolor Butterflies


It's Tuesday Trigger time! Load up your approaches to this moxie fab Trigger following these fun-tastic deets:
  • Create a paper crafted project that is inspired by this week’s Trigger and post it to your blog by Sunday, April 29. (It's a two-weeker!)
  • Then, click on the title of your blog post, copy the URL at the top, and link it using Mr. Linky below.
  • Please show the Trigger on your blog and link back to the Tuesday Trigger to encourage your readers to play along as well.
  • Please include a statement as to how and why you were inspired as sometimes it isn't easy to tell. :)
  • If you don't have a blog, post your project to this flickr group and link it to Mr. Linky as soon as you've grabbed the URL.
Easy peasy and TONS o' fun!

Congrats to this week's Trigger Targets who posted their interpretations to last week's Trigger, Three Little Birds! Make sure you check out their projects and leave them some love on their blogs!

I was inspired by the colors so that is what I used for my card. These normally are not colors I would use.

I will definitely be using these colors again as well as duplicating more of a water color look in my projects. Thanks for the inspiration.

Tough one for me this week...The more uncertain things seem to be, the more secure I will feel, because uncertainty is my path to freedom. Through the wisdom of uncertainty, I will find my security.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL inspirational picture! I've THOUGHT & THOUGHT!!!!!(This sometimes is THE HARDEST part for me---getting it in my head what I want, bringing it all together!) Anyway, I THINK I'm LATE!!!!!!!!!!! :( But, thought I'd throw it in anyway! I had SUCH a WONDERFUL time making this! Tried a couple NEW TECHNIQUES even! I was TICKLED with how it came out! & JUST HAD TO throw it in, eventhough I'm late! STILL HOPE you like it eventhough I was late for that important date!!! :)
