Never Never Never Give Up!

Good morning friends! 

This is my first time posting with the Passionately Artistic Team 
since last year when my Father in Law got sick.  It's nice to be back and I appreciate 
Maggie and the team being patient with me while I got my ducks in a row! 

 I decided to make a little inspirational art book!  I had some white thin foam board that was already cut to this size (which is about 3in by 7in) and I have been wondering what to do with it.  First I sprayed the front and back of each piece with Glimmer Mist in a blue and a green color.  Then, I inked the edges and sponged more ink on the fronts and backs.  Next, I heat embossed them on both sides with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the images and sentiments/scriptures from several 
Our Daily Bread designs stamp sets and stamped three butterflies too. 

I cut each butterfly out with the coordinating ODBD die for the 2 step butterfly set and sponged the edges.  I placed the butterflies over the grunge butterfly images.  After putting the little book together with my Bind-it-all, I began decorating each page.  I added sparkly rhinestone swirl pieces, some wadded up tulle using Beacon 3-in-1 glue, and then stickles to each butterfly. 

The ODBD stamp sets I used are all newly released this month!

Thank you so much for visiting with me today!
