Butterflies for Lily – A Birthday Gift

Butterflies for Lily

Butterflies for Lily was on schedule for today, I needed a birthday gift for her. She is just getting ready to move into a new bedroom so I knew I wanted to make something she would love for her wall. My sister had give me a box of old plastic frames and one of them seemed perfect.

Using some of my scrapbooking supplies with Chalkology paste, I repeated her name on the backing. Then I used the Butterflies transfer on the inside of the glass. Purple is her favourite colour right now so of course, there had to be a purple one.

I love the way it turned out. It has a little bit of a drop shadow on the backing from the butterflies. It is hard to capture with the camera but it is a very nice effect. Best of all, Lily loves it and can’t wait to get it up on her new bedroom wall.

For this project, I used Chalkology paste on the inside of the glass. This allows the glass to be cleaned with spray cleaner or a damp cloth without wiping away the design. You could chalk on the outside of the glass but would need to seal it to be able to wet wipe it when cleaning. You could also try ink and heat set so you can wet wipe but I did not trust this glass in the oven. It is not very thick.
