This project showcases
Wk 2 of my current Butterfly Challenge
So buy one 50p frame from the local charity shop.
Give it a coat of paint using matchpots in
Distress using Liquid pearls 'Majestic Purple'
by rubbing in along the grain of the wood
and sanding down to achieve a worn look .
Then have a good rummage in your stash
and go to town embellishing to your hearts desire.
I cut the butterflies from shrink plastic
using a couple of die cut butterfly frames.
Then coloured using my promarkers
before heating to shrink down in size.
Once I was happy with the colours
I allowed to dry and then gave each one
a good coating of glossy accents.
The photo in the frame is rather special
as it is the only known one in existence of
The Doc's Grandmother.
His aunt showed it to us and we asked to borrow it
to take copies of.
The original is in a bit of a state but I managed to retake
a photo of it and then download into my computer.
It is only a small size 2'x3' so I cropped and resized to
fit the frame and printed off onto good quality gsm card stock.
It is in black and white so I used
my pearlescent chalks to enhance the grass
and her clothing.
This is a surprise for The Doc's Aunt for this Sunday.
