Billowing butterflies

Well it's finally happened!
my current butterfly obsession is verging on the unmanageable
at least 280 of them fluttering over some old pages
the idea was a coloured cloud
it needs a bit of fine tuning
but you get the gist of it?

mental note to self:
make a nice background BEFORE you place your butterflies
buy a new punch BEFORE embarking on such a big piece

consequences of not following above
excessive paint sploshing and inking to get a bit of colour down
live and learn
I know where I'm going with it, sort of...

inquiring minds here...about how big IS it?

Oh Margaret it's lovely in a very fluttery way.
You only need to worry about the butterfly crafting if you start naming each one and calling them to come have their tea with the rest of your family ;-)
Until then you can keep the punch on your bedside table in a little shrine LOL!

I've been gone most of this week and didn't see this post till now. Talk about a stunning piece. I really like the splotches of color and dribbles of paint. It gives the entire piece an ethereal look and feel. And the TEXTURE is beyond words. Love everything about this piece!
