butterfly masquerade

i am proud to say *I* found the inspiration piece for this month's pixie dust paperie group project! i bought a pack of six plain white cardstock butterfly masks at michaels, in the kids' crafts section, for about a dollar; i thought how fun they would be to "dress up" with pixie-style accoutrements, such as those in this month's MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM kit.

and i was right, see?!

i've used pink paislee's butterfly garden paper as my base; most of a pack of pebbles' felt roses (with copic-ed centers to match my color scheme!); some signature pixie crinkled ribbon... all from the july kit; everything else is a leftover from previous pixie kits: some pebbles' pearl flourish, a tim holtz trinket pink, etc.

i ♥LOVE♥ how this turned out, it is actually even better than the picture in my head when i was dreaming this project up!!! (dontcha LOVE IT when that happens??!)

hop on over to the pixie blog today to see more butterfly goodness, and then tomorrow the previews for the august kit begin!!! ♥♥♥


  1. WOWZERS! So incredibly GORGEOUS!

  2. How cute is THAT... I love your mask with the ribbons and beautiful flowers.

  3. What a fabulous creation! It's amazing what you can do with paper and a few other elements.
    Can it be... previews for the August kit already. I just started using July's. I'm sadly behind. Can't wait to buy one though. The highlight of the month is receiving my kit in the mail! I LOVE these kits! Thanks for the inspiration, Lauren.
