Butterfly Altered Board Book

I am sending this book to Chrisy in Fort Myers, Florida...."The Above Average American Girl" that loves butterflies.


This is a small children's board book that I altered using a butterfly theme...I got quotes from the Internet and butterfly images from everywhere...including some terrific paper that I got in San Francisco at the Flax store (I could live at this store). The back grounds consist of tissue paper, raw silk samples and some printed pages from a 1880's book. I used all kinds of embellishments from paper dollies, glazes, silk flowers and lots of fibers.
