You Make Me So Happy | Debbi Tehrani

Hey, Foxy Friends! I hope this post finds you happy and healthy. In these troubling times, it's comforting to have a hobby that brings us joy. I'm sharing another layout I made to give to one of my students.

Don't you just love the translucent Perspextives Bramble Fox makes? I used the Butterflies in the heathers colorway as well as a title from a prior Fox Box.

I've been seeing people making layouts with paintbrushes, and I found a free cut file from Paper Issues that had a paintbrush. I used my fringe scissors on the bristle part of the brush, some wood grain for the handle, and I found some metallic silver part for the part that holds the bristles.

I had the idea of making butterflies fly out of my paintbrush, so I looked through my collections to find some butterflies. I found a paper from Jen Hadfield's Along the Way collection that was filled with butterflies that I fussy cut. And since I scrap 8 x 8, the small size of the butterflies was perfect. Once I had chosen my butterflies, I used a real paintbrush to paint some swashes emerging from the paintbrush and added some splatters. I adhered all the butterflies, lifting their wings with pop dots. I like that all the butterflies from the Jen Hadfield paper are smaller, making the Perspextives the stars of the show.

I snuck in a heart from the Hearts Galore pack, as I always add hearts to the pages I make for my students.

Besides the butterflies, you can also find lots of other Perspextives that have this beautiful translucent, frosty look: Forest Animals, Tokens of Love, and
