This is an altered mixed media piece…that I am working over…twice.  The first iteration, the second iteration.

This one I am actually happy with!  It coordinates with the other picture in the room, uses the color of the new towels, and I like the imagery!

Three butterflies…not only have I done this one THREE times, there are THREE butterflies in it!


  1. Base/Background:  The second iteration, which I painted white.  The covered it with a burgundy craft paint, which I dragged a comb through.  I let it completely dry and it was VERY red and dark, so I wiped it with a baby wipe…a lot.  Brick stencil with Hero Arts – Unicorn.  Inkadinkadoo flourish stamp with Memento – Tuxedo.  Edges are done with Gelato – red and white.
  2. Chipboard Butterfly:  Eye Connect Crafts – Scalloped Wings; treated with embossing folders, craft paint, gelatos, and glimmer mist.
  3. Top Butterfly:  Purchased; treated with craft paint and glimmer mist.
