This pretty little project started out as what I refer to as a Blind Monkey Project (BMP). A BMP means I had very little insight as to what I would make ...I just jump in blindly and monkey around until something starts to take shape.
Using papers~ink~stamps~milinery flowers~buttons~ribbon and more it didn't take long to transform this 1960's beveled glass butterfly window into a shabby sweet study in natures beauty.
Even the back is lovely with vintage wallpaper-like image and metal edge beading. I decided not to delve into my crap loads of vintage do-dads and ephemera just yet so I used what was readily available on my cluttered farm table. The butterfly wings are real and I had to be quite careful while working under the glass. I think it turned out nicely with a sophisticated whimsy. This will be for sale in my Lollishop .
