Come often to us,
Sit near us on the bough
We'll talk of sunshine and song.
I started with an inkjet transparency transfer of a butterfly that I'd printed out on graph paper. The quality of the transfer wasn't great, but I loved the shape of the butterfly and the colors. I decided to start with some interesting background papers with stitching and shapes, then add the transfer and go from there. I used a combination of watercolor and acrylic to paint the background and the butterfly. The words are image transfer done with packing tape. I also used my handmade butterfly stamp for some added texture and interest in the painting.
