Butterfly Collage

I cut the butterfly shape out of primed, painted newspaper.
The painted newspaper had been painted with brushed on acrylic paint
 and then stamped with bubble wrap
I tried the cutout shape of the butterfly over different painted papers I had
just painted today. Most of the papers were just one color and not very interesting for a
But one large piece had different colors on it because I had been cleaning out
brushes on it. Voila!!
It was just right. I glued it on and added the BALANCE word
and the gold glue circle A-L-L-L
on top of painted corrugated cardboard.
Happy Butterfly Day!

used to brush out paint from a loaded brush
