I went looking for a little inspiration yesterday and found a fun one over at the Webster's Pages InspireMe blog. Iris Uy is well known for her whimsy and her cut work. She challenged you to cut out a photo and have it interact with the paper. Definitely one i'll do ... once. I tried it and it was fun. Not my everyday thing but very fun!

Have you cut out a photo lately?

Some of the things i did that i like about this page -
I cut a felt flower into a butterfly shape by trimming off one of the petals.
then it looked kind of plain so I added some distress stickles to it. much better.
I made my own grass and shadowed it with a marker. Simple but fun!
I added lace trim to the cut paper border strip. nice dimension.
and some more paper cutting. it kind of fit the mood.

thanks for looking!
