Arty Girlz Challenge ~ Butterflies



Better late than never, here is my submission for the Arty Girlz Challenge this week. I had the idea from the moment I saw the topic...finding the time to create was another story. While working on this collage all I could think of was my youngest son and his affection for caterpillars, Monarchs in particular. As much as he loves to raise them and watch the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly, he is always so sad to say goodbye to his caterpillars. Sometimes change is hard to accept in any form.

This collage is available in my Etsy shop.

That is so cute about your son!

That one's really sweet Nancy! I love butterflies and I know how your son feels. We used to do the same when we were kids.

Nancy this is so beautiful! I haven't had much time lately to visit all my favourite blogs, and yours has changed so much since I last came by! So much amazing work, I love it all! The piece you did on canvas is stunning, and the little house you made for the bushfire appeal was incredible, so delicate and quietly powerful. Inspiring as ever! xxx
