New Year, New You....

Hi everyone, Tara C. here with another Themed Thursday!  A new year is always a time for change and improvement of ourselves, our goals, our hopes and wishes. What better way to celebrate those changes than with this beautiful stamp from Paper Wings Productions!  

Butterflies and moths go through metamorphosis to show their real beauty and we, as humans, are so lucky in that we can go through changes many times over. While I do make some resolutions, I more often like to give myself inspiration throughout the year and this sentiment will remind me daily of what I want the coming year to bring.

I stamped this gorgeous panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then colored it with Copic Markers.  I layered it and the sentiment with soft Spring colors and with some black for a bit of boldness.  I stamped the small moth from the set in coordinating colors, cut them out and glittered them up with Stickles and finally added a flourish and flower for elegance.

I have an inspiration board above my desk and this handcrafted memento will hang there to encourage me to take advantage of the beauty and hope that each new year brings.  What inspires you throughout the year? Paper Wings Productions would love to see your handcrafted inspirations added to our Flickr group,to Pinterest or to our Facebook page.  Thanks for checking us out today!
