Pretty Primavera with Itkupilli

This month Gecko Galz teamed up with amazing paper artist Itkupilli and we were asked to create a project with her Primavera pack and I fell in love with the colors and thought it would be fun to combine her products along with Gecko Galz Butterfly Wings and some matching tulle ribbon and created this charming kitchen chalk board.

I started with the stand that I purchases at Hobby Lobby and painted it using white acrylic paint then on the front adhered a sheet of Primavera paper by Itkupilli and inked the edges with pink and green distress inks.
Next I Took my wood plaque piece I purchased at Hobby Lobby and using chalkboard paint I painted one side then using E6000 I placed it on the front. Next I picked out a number of butterflies from the "Butterfly Wings" collage set and printed them out on heavy card stock then fussy cut them out then along with an erray of flowers by spare parts I layered them on around the chalk board using Scotch liquid adhesive.
Next I added Ice Stickles wo the butterfly wings and along the outer edge of the chalkboard pearls using my white Viva pearl pen. To finish I tied pink and green tulle ribbon to the top and fluffed.
This makes a great house warming gift or chalkboard for a guest room to welcome your guest.
Happy Crafting
