Butterflies and freedom and creating...oh my!

Hi! Seems this layout was meant to be...I looked at the beautiful April mood board for Scrap Around the World's April challenge at the beginning of the month and loved it:

The butterflies and the freedom concept especially caught my eye, but I had other projects going and put it on the back burner. Then withing a few days of each other, I received some lovely butterfly images in the mail from my lovely scrappy friend Elizabeth and found a fabulous quote on Facebook that really spoke to me. Thus my layout and April challenge entry was born!

 Believe it or not, I didn't use texture paste on this page at all!In keeping with the airy, free feeling I wanted to capture, I added a little stamping/stenciling with ink, a few brushes of blue-white acrylic paint to create the butterflies' flight path, then some hand-stitching to accentuate that feeling of movement.
