My Butterfly Challenge has another week to run
and the current theme is Monochromatic.
I had a picture that I'd painted when I first started oil painting
but never really liked it so I decided to repaint over it
and make this wall Plaque instead.
I painted over the original picture using
tester pots in two shades of purple.
On the bottom third I added some drops of deep purple to the second colour
to make the darkest shade.
Whilst the canvas was still wet I laid some bubble wrap over the top and pressed down
to create a textured finish.
I used Penny Black's 'Delicate Wings 'die
to cut 4 base butterflies from white card
which I glued together and then used the deep purple to paint over.
Attached to canvas using 3d sticky pad tape
Sentiment was created in word using 'Informal Roman' text
and colouring both the wording and background on the computer.
Printed onto paper and then glued onto a scrap of card and cut into the fish tail banner.
Pearls from my stash.
Hope this gives you some inspiration for joining in my challenge.
