OK - I began by mixing a strong solution of purple dye.I then lay that in a cookie pan and lay my paper into that.
It was taking a long time to color and I am an impatient person so I took the paper out and lay it on paper towels.
I then sprinkled purple dye powder on top.Once the grains were dissolved,I brushed across the page and then added a bit more water.
I then sprinkled the black where I wanted it,made sure all the dye was wet and waited.
It only took about 10 mins to get the look I wanted.I brushed off the rest and rinsed it quickly .I lay it back onto paper towels and let dry for a bit. Again since I didn't want to wait..I used my heat gun to dry it some more.
The next step was to add a bit of black paint.I used the edge of cardboard and stamped and dragged to get the look I wanted.
I then used my Glimmer mist to create some circles in a few spots.
The perfect pearls mist I sprayed onto this plastic grid thingy and stamped onto my paper in a few spots.I then lay it down and sprayed over top to create a slightly different look.
I used my butterfly stamp to emboss a few around the page and began cutting 1 inch,2 inch and 3 inch butterflies from Lilac house and my notebook paper. Some of these were distressed with brown ink and some were left alone.
I stitched a square piece of plastic onto the front (my machine did not like this step at all but I did it anyway).Added a few embellishments ,all my butterflies,which I then had to remove a few cause it just didn't look right and added some bling,a cute picture and voila!
Dip dYed paper.I think this would look really cool with black bats instead of butterflies for a Halloween page.
