I recently found out that my friend Trudi from Two Dresses Studio is sponsoring The Butterfly Effect for a great cause. Click on the link below to find out more about it, and perhaps (hopefully) you will join us.
The butterfly at the top is my first attempt for my entry. I like it, but there is text and music in the background, and I had wanted the color more transparent. So, I think I'll make another one. I do really like the texture in this one though. The black dots are fresh water pearls that I dyed with black alcohol ink. I discovered that if you really want to, you can scratch it off, but as long as you're gentle with the pearls, the ink will stay on.
You can see my very talented sister Lauren's butterfly here. My mother is making one also. She doesn't have a blog, but I'll share hers when it's done.
(I am very proud of myself that I managed to type butterfly correctly each time — at least I think I did! I tend to type butteryfly, which I have decided I really like.)
