August: pink and butterflies

After dragon flies and beach huts I feel the need for something less cutesy. There is alot of butterfly pictures about including butterflies as hair or as peoples wings.. This is a take on that but with a scary girl picture. Other than the girl the rest of images come from a bag of paper bits I bought in a little shop in Walsingham Norfolk. It cost all of £2 and I still have lots left. I stained the background and butterfly by using acrylic ink and then sprayed with water. I scanned the calender into the computer and enlarged to superimpose the month of August. Finally I edged in black soot.

Hope you like. I am quite pleased with the result.
