Instructions

  1. Paint a 2 ½” wide rectangle of pink down the left side of the canvas. Paint a 3 ½” dark brown square at the top right corner and the remaining bottom left, tan. Paint the canvas sides brown and let dry.
  2. Tear the right long edge of a 2 ½” x 5 ½” rectangle of horizontal music paper. Glue the paper overlapping the pink rectangle on the canvas. Glue the metal corners to each canvas corner and let dry. Adhere “fly” letters to the top of the brown section. Knot the ends of the ribbon length and glue the knots to the left and right sides of the canvas. Let dry.
  3. Assemble the clock face with hands, securing with the pink mini brad. Glue the clock to the tan section. Glue one pink flower to the top right of the clock and adhere a white glittered dot from the chipboard letters to the center. Repeat with a larger pink flower to the lower right of the word.
  4. Wings: Pull strands of DicroFibers™ for a feathered “wing” appearance. Sprinkle mica chips over what will be the base of the wings. When pressing the fibers, only iron the portion that will be the base behind the photo, leaving the ends wispy and free to move. Stamp large butterfly wings over the pressed portion.
  5. Photo: Sand the edges of the silhouette photo and lightly on the surface to give a distressed look. Glue the photo over the wings.
