I am trying to emulate Jennifer McGuire's stunning butterflies on her website but I'm sort of failing to come up with the vibrancy. I was photographing (poorly) my efforts today and thought I'd show you....if the glitz wasn't there they would be even more dull - I think they fall short of her examples but I had fun playing.
Are you all recovered from the festivities? This is probably the last official holiday until Easter around here - not that that matters to retirees like ourselves! We have a perpetual much so that weekends don't have the same meaning any more. Indeed if we are going away for the day we choose a weekday when things are relatively quiet during school term.....hope it won't be too long before we can pack the car and head off to explore new places and re-acquaint ourselves with favourite haunts.
Wishing you all the happiest of years ahead.


  1. What kind of paper are you using? Look at the back side of each. If the ink is not leaking through and showing on the back, that may be part of the issue. You want paper that absorbs it and allows you to layer color over color repeatedly.

  2. Would you belive it Donna, I was actually using up my scraps...hmmmm some was like stardream and some bog standard....will go and inspect the reverse side....thanks!

  3. wow, these are beautiful!
