Some time ago I bought a clip frame for my bathroom door. As I have so many books my husband asked that I refrain from filling the rest of the walls of our home with pictures.
As I’d rather books than pictures I was happy to do as requested. But a single A4 frame in the bathroom couldn’t hurt! I chose the clip frame which are used in offices because I wanted to be able to change the picture very often!
After putting a Christmas handprint wreath made when my daughter was only 2in the frame for the season, I had a blank frame ready for something new. I do keep all the pictures for that frame to re-use but fancied something different… and so here is what I did, it’s not an original idea. But I do like the style.
I have a lovely book about butterflies, I’ve had it many years and I regret to confess it has been pulled to pieces. I’m not proud but pages have been removed, butterflies from it stuck on things, my sister had a few pages once I think and so, it sits on my beloved shelves a shadow of it’s former self, so I had no (well not many) qualms about ripping out another page.
I decided to draw a cartoon of a little girl walking in the countryside, trying to entice a butterfly to sit on her outstretched finger… everyone does that; right?
I originally coloured in my drawing with pencil crayon but then I decided to add a bit of brightness so used some felt pens.
Well, it’s done. A quick and fun thing to do, I like to do something that is actually reflected in the text but that’s just me, I’ve seen some amazing pictures done like this…
If you can bring yourself to tear the page, it’s fun!
