Today for Retro Cafe Art, we will have Mary Lou model some little butterfly floral pins I created. There seem to be so many butterflies here in South Carolina in the fall, I just love watching them.
To make these little beauties I started with some patterned and solid paper flowers that I just had hanging around. I tried to layer coordinating colors for interest. I sewed in some crocheted colored floral centers for texture all the way through to a pin back. The next part was to paint and use Stickles, they come in such lovely colors, to detail the tiny cutout butterflies from the butterfly ATC Frame centers. I wrapped some pretty twine around to create the body and the antennae. They were glued to the edge, as if they just stopped by for a sip of nectar.
Hope you will flutter by a pretty flower this week.
take care, gerri
