Collage - more

I forgot to explain how the butterflies were produced! Squares of fabric cut out ready for quilting. Trusty PVA again slathered on and the fabric glued to lightweight card which, when dry was cut into butterfly shapes which in turn were glued to the canvas.

  2. Hi Audrey
    Thanks for commenting. Sticking the fabric to the card just made everything more manageable and also minimised fraying. Bye for now. Lesley

  6. Hi Mimilove - yes, they were tricky and sticky, so sticky that it's a wonder they ended up on the canvas! Thanks for commenting.
