This evening I was playing around with the idea of drawing or painting a butterfly. But then I was in a collage mood too. So this little guy is a bit of both.
I hand drew the butterfly and colored the body with sharpies and did the black and white around the outside edges. Then I colored the background with watercolor crayons. I cut out the center panels of the butterfly and adhered various text behind them. the text wing on the left is from the poem book I found. The text wing on the right is a stamped page from an old french book I tear at now and then. For a final little touch I added one black and one pink jewel for the eyes. Those didn't scan very well though, but I like the different colored eyes!
