my current obsession with nature in my library is not yet exhausted, and I wanted to do something else with butterflies. I love those old framed butterfly collections, but I don’t own one and I’m not planning on taking up Lepidoptery any time soon, so it was time to fake it once more!
Then I set about creating the butterflies!
Most of them I drew and painted by hand, but I also printed a couple of pictures off the Internet and cut them out, just to mix it up a little.
Once they were all cut out, it was time to glue them to the background paper. I folded the wings up a little, and just glued the bodies to the paper.
Then I put it into the frame and hung it on the library wall.
I love how these turned out, they look great hanging on the library wall!!!
