|Woo-hoo. Time to dance around the desk.|
Otherwise, an idea that's been basking in the larder of my brain for a while is taking shape. It's another butterfly (see Butterfly post) but this time with a more scientific theme after I went to see an art exhibition of natural sciences illustration. Accordingly, here is a story in pictures this week.
|The general works view including the cup of tea getting cooler and cooler.|
|The vellum butterfly is embossed at the back. Use the larger ball for this so that the paper is not perforated.|
|Notice how the colours are accentuated by the white bruised vellum and the contour has the wing standing off the page.|
|Here is the butterfly wing with tape behind the body and foam dots on the wing.|
|The final prototype. The real thing for cards will be on fine paper and matted somehow....|
Maybe I'll add a tiny butterfly or two and a sentiment space. This has been fun to do - maybe there could be a different version with some masking. That larder in my head has lots of shelves in it today.
This desk snoop starts with Julia Dunnit over at the Stamping Ground. More than 150 people start there and anyone can join us so go and check out these marvy desks if it's new to you.
Miles of smiles to all my lovely followers, and visitors. Have a great week.
