Theme Thursday - Butterflies/Butterfly Wings


This tiny fabric piece was created for a round robin journal swap. I shy away from using fabric in my artwork but whenever I do (which is usually when I'm forced or urged to do so), I wonder why. I very much enjoy working with all of the various textures and the sewing machine is not the daunting beast that I fear it will be. This is my entry for Theme Thursday this week.

This is so gorgeous! I am somewhat dismayed at all the digital work that seems to be overtaking actual paper, fabric, etc collage. There is just no comparison when you see something like this!
