Live Life Like a Butterfly

Hello all,

Feeling so great as a DT for the Quilling Blog.
This times Challenge really made me think as to what I should make.

Here we had to recycle/up-cycle any product and use Quilling as embellishment .
I did not want to do the usual Recycle/upcycle
So I came up with something very different.
This was in my list of try outs for a long time.
Finally got the right project to give it a try.
Look out for more fabulous inspiration from other DTs also at IQCG CH #24

I have up-cycled an Embroidery Hoop 
Firstly I put Gesso on the Hoop and then Distressed it with
Mustard Seed and Festive Berries,
Then stuck Burlap.
Used Festive Berries DI to stencil Butterfly on to the burlap.
Used Green Quilling Strips to form a  Lined Mesh so that photos can be hung using pegs.
Added adhesive flat pearl  all around the hoop.
Using Malaysian Technique made Blue and Pink Combo Flowers .
Arranged it with leaves and scrolls on two sides of the hoop.
Added 2 Mdf Lanterns with Festive Berries DI
Took two wooden pegs and added butterflies to it.
Now Photos can be added. 2-3 photos can be hung here.
This hoop can be used as Wall hanging or as a table top Decor.
I have placed it near my Dressing Table with my daughter's pic.
Will be adding two more pics of her with me and my hubby.
I really loved the Quote LIVE LIFE LIKE A BUTTERFLY,
so I printed and stuck it with double sided tape.
This Quote gives me a kind of positive inspiration to
Enjoy and make the most of your life.
