This little collage is made from watercolour butterflies painted on old French book paper which was beyond repair. Each butterfly was hand cut and rolled and finished with ink, then labelled with a species inspired by a famous writer. They are mounted on ivory board and placed in a deep frame.
The artwork will be carefully packaged and posted within a few days. I have left the back unsealed so you can either have the butterflies close to the glass and slightly flattened, or set back as in a memory frame. I have provided framing tape so you can seal the back of the frame when you have made your choice. It will be sent so the butterflies are close to the glass to protect them in transit.
It is a pretty and whimsical work piece that will look eye catching in a bedroom, nursery, or cottage sitting room.
Please let me know if you would like me to include a message for the recipient if you are sending it as a gift.
