Snowflake Butterfly Scrapbook Layout

Hello, Connie Nichol here today  with a project featuring two Quietfire Design digital cutting files -  'Snowflake Butterfly' and 'Let it Snow'.  These files are available in the Silhouette store here

The snowflake butterfly cut file is so gorgeous.  I debated whether to cut several small butterflies to use as page embellishments, but in the end, went whole hog and cut out a butterfly to cover most of the page.  
It started out white, as did the 'Let it Snow' title, but that looked too stark, so I added some pinks and mauves with watercolour paint.  I used lots of water and just dabbed randomly to get a variegated look.

and the water colour paint that I used.  Just wet a brush with plenty of water and a few different colours of paint to customize your die cuts.  Let dry and then add a photo and a few embellishments, but with electronic cutting files as pretty as the snowflake butterfly, let it be the main feature on the page instead of adding too much other stuff.  Happy Scrapbooking!

Supplies:  Close to my Heart cardstock and water colour paints, Martha Stewart border punch, PinkFresh Studio stickers, Imagine Crafts white pico embellisher, Silhouette Cameo.
