butterfly art

March 9, 2010


i'm redoing our "powder room" and in my next post with the before and after you will see how calling this a room is very generous.  i wanted something light and airy over the toilet and couldn't find anything i liked so i decide to see what i could do on my own.
my supplies were: a canvas, burlap, and scrapbook paper


i had seen this tutorial on how to make 3D butterflies
http://www.maryjanesandgaloshes.com/2010/02/3d-butterflies.html
so i made those and they turned out great.
i stapled the burlap over the canvas and hot glued the butterflies on.
