This week the challenge from Take a Word is 'Butterflies', and over at Inspiration Avenue it's 'Red White and Blue'. Then at Collage Obsession the theme is USA, celebrating the 4th July. At first I thought I'd be giving it a miss since I am English, but then decided I could use the 'Red White and Blue' theme there.
My personal challenge was to combine butterflies with red, white and blue, a rather unlikely pairing perhaps.
My start point was the single butterfly outline above, drawn with black pen in the middle of a sheet of A4 white Bristol board.
I kept repeating the drawing fairly randomly over the page so that they interlinked.
At this point I decided that a 6" x 6" square would produce what I wanted, and cut out a frame to help me choose the section I liked best.
And this is what I chose.
