heinous: adjective

 hatefully or shockingly evil : abominable

"Humans have contrasted love with hate and good with evil for eons, putting love and good on one side and hate and evil on the other. The etymology of "heinous" reflects the association of hate with that which is evil or horrible. During the 14th century, English borrowed "heinous" from the Middle French "haine," meaning "hate." Over time English speakers came to use the word to reflect the sense of horror evoked by intense hatred."
Helmar April Challenge- "Days-of-the-week"
Now I admit, this challenge took a creative effort on my part because I don't do scrapbook pages, well, hardly ever anyway...plus what I create goes up for sale. I wish I could make projects for myself but I don't have the time, I must make things to go to the Art MoB, and trust me, I don't mind one bit that things sell so well that I have to keep up with the demand...nope, not a problem at all! lol
So I went looking for quote inspiration that I thought would correspond with the challenge,
 and found this:

The canvas is covered in Vintage Street's Tinted Tape so it's a very glossy surface, so I used Helmar's 450 to adhere the Prima flowers and the word strips to it.
I used Helmars Gemstone Adhesive to glue on the Kaiser Craft rhinestones onto the Queen & Co. orange felt scroll and used 450 onto the Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Now the most fun came from a problem.
 I wanted to add a leaf, but the leaf colors weren't matching the over all ambiance of the canvas...I know, I'm weird like that. So I made my own, and I LOVE how they came out, adhered them with the 450.
I got quite obsessed with making them..as you can see. They are cut from the wax paper/tissue that gets laid in the bottom of my spray box and which I have used from time to time as many of you know. After they are cut out I dipped them into my Tim Holtz melting pot that has all the UTEE in it that has turned amber brown.
OK, anyone else thinking butterfly wings?
