About 9 years ago, I had a fun class in Arizona learning how to make translucent papers out of tissue paper and wax paper. The artist didn't want us to share on social media the steps and now I don't remember how we did it (sigh). I still have some of the papers and decided to use it for this project.
Stmped an Irish Blessing on yellow card stock, then adhered the translucent paper on top. Stamped floral image 3 times on the translucent paper, stamping over the middle image a second time. Added copper Pearl Pen dots to the flower centers. Used a gold metallic pen to add some highlights. Added a bee sticker with glitter Stickles to the wing, and black washi tape to the bottom of the atc.

Used yellow Distress Ink with dtp (Direct-to-Paper) and heat set. Then sponged on orange Distress Ink over two different stencils, heat set.
To finish, stamped a saying with black Distress Ink over the red splatter. made a dotted edge with fine black Sharpie and added 3 black brads.

If you follow the colors of the butterflies (orange, yellow, blue) the highlighted words read:
boundless dreamer, children reach high for dreams, stars flowing free

I inked both a bold font saying and a bold butterfly image with light blue dye ink. Then inked a crackled texture stamp with dark blue ink. Kissed (or pressed) the light blue inked bold stamps onto the dark blue ink textured stamp.
Then huffed (breathed) onto the doubled ink stamps and stamped onto white card stock.
I have a collection of decorative paper bags from shopping over the years. I decided to cut them into 3/4" wide strips to make birthday cakes and to punch out candles. Used metallic gel pens to color the flames of the candles.

My daughter-in-law sent me some of the onesies from when the twins were babies and asked me to make them quilts. I decided to cut out the designs from the onesies and use iron-on light interfacing as for a t-shirt quilt. The squares from these small onesies were pretty small, so I added lots of other fabrics to create these quilts. She is very happy with them. Whew!
