Here are the four little things. Bless their little ugly hearts!
Today I will show in a photo tutorial how I changed one ugly butterfly into a charming house.
Here is my butterfly gone terribly wrong. I feel it needs explanation but all I really remember about this was wanting to incorporate texture. Hmm.
I stared at this canvas for awhile trying to creatively think of way to delete the ugly butterfly. I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but the center of the butterfly is a strip of canvas that juts out on top of the canvas.
I finally decided to take some old dress patterns and adhere them with a gel medium to give the whole canvas texture, and "hide" the butterfly body somewhat.
After that dried I decided to use the body as a slant of a house roof top. I then tore some vintage wallpapers and started gluing down.
What do you think? Challenge yourself to make something "old", "new" again!
