Lovely Butterfly - Authentique & Petaloo

Hi everyone!  This week Authentique and Petaloo have teamed up to show how well these products work together, and we're featuring Authentique's "Lovely" collection.  (And there's a prize to be won, too!)  "Lovely" may have a distinct Valentine vibe, but don't feel like you have to use it for only Valentine's Day. I've used it with these photos of my daughter, and one of her little quirks, because the colours were perfect.

Petaloo's Darjeeling flowers work perfectly with Authentique's papers - the textures work so well together.  I've used the Darjeeling Dahlias - Hyacinthe, and the Darjeeling Mini-pearl Daises - Hyacinthe.

I adhered the letter stickers to one of the 'solid' patterns in the collection, then cut it out and pop-dotted it for dimension.  The soft ribbons that are gathered under the edge of paper (and on the stick pin) are from May Arts.

In this detail shot, you can see some of the lovely stick pins from Petaloo - so easy to just tuck in behind other embellishments.  Also, if you look closely, you can see that I've used some of the "Lovely" frame stickers.  They don't always have to 'frame' something - sometimes they are just a nice detail.  :)

Scattering smaller embellishments around your journaling can help draw your attention to it, as well as make it feel more part of the over-all design.

Be sure to check out the Authentique blog all this week, for chances to win a prize-pack from Authentique, Petaloo, and May Arts!
