In the middle of Adelaide there's a huge park that neighbours the botanical gardens. The other afternoon, while walking through the park Kathie and her son saw about a dozen orange butterflies. They were flitting around, playing in the sunlight. Jamie was absolutely enchanted. This series of photos captures him racing around, playing with the butterflies. It was really as if they were playing too!
The Twiddleybitz Whimsy Bird Friends and Elements are so suited to a page about an enchanted garden. Kathie's painted them and then inked around the edges with some Walnut distress ink to give a bit of a vintage feel. She's set them in a garden with a host of other manufacturers - including 7gypsies, Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon, Hambly Screenprints and Sassafras Lass. The end result is a colourful and vibrant page.
Carol Thompson has outdone herself with this amazing project – there’s so many different Twiddleybitz products in here, we don’t really know where to start. First off is the gorgeous easel the whole scene is mounted on. Then there’s the gorgeous little church, which is a new release, along with the fabulous long picket fence, which is a classic and perennial favourite.
The new Nero range is represented here too – the Iron Mantle and other wrought iron bits add further interest and contrast.
Anything to do with birds is always beautiful, and this standing Bird Cage by Twiddleybitz is no exception. Carole Janson painted the Bird Cage in blue to really highlight the shape, and then added detail using Prima Florals and Shabby Chic papers, with a cute Twiddleybitz Picket Fence to finish off.
Louise Williams has used the fabulously intricate Twiddleybitz Opening Gates to frame her photo, with great effect. And what a sweet photo! The weathered scrolls on the gate work perfectly with the splash of romantic colour from the Prima flowers and vines and provide stunning contrast to the stark grey background. She has further added to the magical atmosphere with the empowering quote.
We thank Karola Witczak for allowing us to share this beautiful delicate layout. She has also used the Twiddleybitz Opening Gates to highlight her photo, and teamed it with more Prima goodness, in a completely different way.
Finally, who wouldn't love to have this stunning shadowbox on a mantel somewhere? Again Karola Witczak has created this project using a Twiddleybitz shadow box and flourish, decorated with Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat collection. We think you'll agree that it's simply a work of art!
