Tina has been asking me for a while to create a kit for a photo she had taken of Tate - it was obviously taken later in the afternoon - you know how the light has that golden glow in late summer in the late afternoon ( I love that sort of light) - so I finally sat down and tried to come up with something that she would like - trying hard not to make it too feminine - . I took the golden sky theme and then added some grey ( for the night sky that is coming soon after those golden rays set) - I made the sun and the frame and ribbons and then was a bit at a loss as to what else to add - I didnt want TOO many sun images in there - I found the butterfly image in a dover book ( the circular one) - in black and white and immediately thought it would look super in a stained glass look and once I had done that well I had to make a larger stained glass butterfly to match . I finished the kit up with the brad ( which actually matches the centre of the sun) and the small square frame - I really love this kit and I intend to use it for a layout about Hannahs hair - which is really like that late summer sunlight colour - (Its in the DSP store now hope you like it Posted by Picasa


  1. Yes, and the kit is goregous and perfect. If you'd like to see my layout (and the photo it was 'created for')- it is here:

  2. Beautiful work Lauren, I love the butterflies. This kit really does make me think of summer evenings.
