I made the background of this canvas by dry brushing many layers of acrylic paint alternating different colors. I attached the canvas to a cradled wood panel that I had stained. Most of the bits and pieces are vintage. The flowers were made with old pocket watch parts, wire, and hot glue. The tiny vials still contain the tiny wrist watch parts that were in them when I found them. all of the paper is old, some of it from watch part packaging containing mainsprings. I love the way the butterfly turned out.
