painting paper for It's Sew Easy

the first project in the Sew Easy course was to paint our own patterned paper then punch shapes and sew them together to make a much fun! Julie punched butterflies and as I only have one small butterfly punch I used my craft robo to cut butterflies.
Here is a page I have painted but not used as yet. I used a sketch pad with 150gsm paper. It worked very well and flattened sufficiently for my robo to cut with only one pass.

These are some of my butterflies....and circles

and a close up showing some of the butterfly details
