Butterfly art seems to be everywhere these days when it comes to design. So when I recently re-decorated my shelves I wanted to incorporate some butterfly art in with all of my other nature inspired decor. The only thing was I didn't want it to look the way I typically see it. I needed something new ;.) I think this image is stunning, the colors are amazing...*Via Houseofturquoise.com
However, I needed something on a smaller scale. So I brought the butterflies in by doing a little (less then $10) art project this week and I thought I might share it with some of you crazy kids ;.)
Here is what I needed:
1.Some gold metallic spray paint
2.Some plastic butterflies from the craft store
3.Some sticky dots & leftover scrap paper
4.A shadow box
Here is the gold spray paint I LOVE to use (the coverage is fantastic)
Here were some plastic butterflies scored from Michael's for $3
I then cut some extra paper (leftover from my desk project) to fit inside the shadow box. I secured it with some sticky tape & then after the butterflies were dry I used sticky dots to secure them in a line inside the box. I really just love the look...here it is finished and in it's new home...
Don't forget to have an awesome day...I am off to go work on some projects for next week. See ya soon!
