Where Butterflies Find their Wings: Art for a Girl’s Room

4 Comments

Selah makes her home in a tiny pink fanciful room.  It’s where fairies fly and imagination soars.  Where pretend stories are told and tea parties are had and butterflies find their wings.  This piece of art fits perfectly there. 

I started by scavenging around my in-laws beautiful home looking for a good frame.  This one was hidden up near their attic.  Can you see Paul’s profile shot?  It looks just like Adden now.  Those boys have good heads of hair, I tell you. 

I then proceeded to take out the cute kid and spraypaint the entire frame white.  Selah and I punched out a million little butterflies out of old scrapbook paper, glue dotted them to a matte board, and then opened their wings.   

The hardest part was cutting out a picture frame mat because it was an off size.  Besides that, I loved the final product.  It was simple, inexpensive, and it was something that we could do together.  I initially found the idea here.
