In My project I lightly sketched a profile picture onto my canvas then I have decided to paint My profile and pasted my faux butterflies down as hair. Try large bold shapes they will be easier to collage the butterflies on. I then finished up my project with a little inspirational quote and a little detail using a stencil which helped pull the piece together.

Hope This has inspired you watch the video and give it a try, and enjoy this project as much as I have.
