Butterfly specimen art




Specimen art or punch collages have become quite popular. My first one was a heart specimen art for Valentines. I knew I'd have to do this again for spring with butterflies, since they are one of my favorite things. Ali Edwards has a popular version.



Instead of the black frame I used for my heart art, I took an 8 1/2 x 11 wood frame from Dollar Tree and painted it white. I used a piece of kraft scrapbook paper for my background. It turned out okay. Now that I'm looking at the picture, I see a couple that are not exactly straight. I should have used the grid offered by Jen at Tatertots and Jello.  I was lazy and just "eyeballed" it.  Oh well, we'll pretend those few are trying to flutter away.



Looking forward to the weekend! I'll be linking up to the parties on the side.

  1. Hi Fonda,

    Wow I really love this! I also recently made some art with butterflies.

    It's very springy, and I love how it's all symetrical. Great job!
