After I had made the fabric Peacock picture the other day using an old picture frame
I was left with the discarded mount.
So I rounded up a few other items below to go with it.
Sequins, Glitter, Beadazzles, double -sided adhesive sheet,
Butterfly template(from Craft Stamper magazine Aug 2012)
and a used tester paint pot.
Several happy hours later (or as The Doc likes to call it 'Spud ling')
I came up with this!
A sequined butterfly picture.
I had cut the template out from the adhesive sheet and peeled the backing paper off from one side.
I then sorted through the bag of sequins (£1 from Poundland) and picked out some that were matching so that each wing would be even and stuck them on in a random pattern.
Spaces that were too small for a sequin were filled in using the Beadazzles.
Finally a liberal coating of fine glitter.
I then stuck the other side of the butterfly onto a sheet of navy pearlescent A4 card.
The mount was a bit scruffy so I gave it a freshen up with the tester pot in 'Natural Hessian'.
Adhered the card to the back of the mount when dry.

I still have the glass left over from the picture frame but I have ideas for that too!!!
