Craftaway Sunday - Butterflies





There are several terms for a group of butterflies including "Swarm", "Rabble", "Flight" and my favourite "Kaleidoscope". So here is a little altered box that some eyelets came in (see photo below)which now holds a princess reflecting on her kaleidoscope of butterflies.

Moira - this is absolutely enchanting! What a lovely transformation... that's what I love about altered art - the vision to create something so beautiful from such an ordinary box!
And, your patchwork arch is so pretty - I love the white embossing!

Wow....I am so impressed that you started with a box that eyelets came in and ended up with a magical place for fairies. This is gorgeous.

I came here to check out your Gothic Arch and I am glad I did because I got to see your beautiful butterfly inspired works. Fantastic.
