table leg butterfly with vintage print
Update June 2017
I'm no longer creating any dragonflies or butterflies.
I appreciate all of your past orders, thank you!

It's spring time and I've been adding a few table leg butterflies and dragonflies 
to my Etsy shop, they make great Mother's Day gifts! ;)

vintage lady in red dress print
When I was taking picture frames apart to use for my Picture Molding Christmas Trees
this print was in one of them and I just couldn't throw it away.

decoupaged table leg butterfly wings
I decided to decoupage parts of the image to my butterfly wings.
I left the edges rough and added painted gold swirls.
The print had some creases and imperfections but I think
that only adds more character to this piece.

recycled butterfly general finishes milk paint
Gosh I love that paint. It goes on so smooth and distresses beautifully.

I cut and bent an embossed serving fork for the antenna
and added glass bead eyes...

Along with more huge glass beads and metal pieces at the tail.

mixed media butterfly sculpture art
I love how she turned out!
Since it's decoupaged, it's indoor use only on this butterfly.

I created a few more of the pink and fleur de lis designs.
This design is definitely one of my most popular.

I used glass bead eyes and beaded antenna, aka... shower curtain hooks.
