Sneak peak:


Pinterest is so inspiring! I have always loved this Pin:


My cousin, who just joined Craftster, loves butterflies. He's also crazy about peanuts. Today is his birthday, so I just had to figure out how to combine his two loves into one. Here's what I came up with:


The plaque on the bottom is a Tim Holtz word band. It reads: "reality has limits, imagination is boundless", which I think is perfect for this piece!

I think the peanuts make the paper wings so much more real looking, being 3D and all. Here's a closeup of a couple of my favorites, where you can see just how realistic they really are. Floral stamens make perfect antennae.


And, one more for the road. Oh look, there's a little caterpillar joining the crew. He's dreaming of the day he too, can fly free.


I hope my cuz loves this. I think it will be perfect in his office!

Your version is way more fun and pretty! Especially like the added "caterpillar" in the last pic. Smiley

So nice to personalize your art for your cousin...the nutterflies are awesome and cute, but be sure to include the little caterpillar...he adds so much to your nutty art!
