Twinkling Butterflies

I am having the time of my life painting with my twinkling h2o watercolors! Thanks to Dion Dior. Look at these butterflies! I can tell you before my version of a butterfly was sloppy and more spread out. I like how she taught us to overlap the wings.

Part of our color lesson is to make ATC's. I love ATC's as you know and even have a group where we send them to each other in the US and abroad. I added some zentangle into this butterflies wings.

 I love the polka dots on this one's body

  I tried to see if I could mix the colors in the wings but the mixed media paper does not let them blend so easily. The paint just absorbs into the paper.

The colors blended much better in this butterfly because it was on very good mixed media paper in the Stillman & Birn Beta Series notebook. I will work on outlining these later today. 

Happy Arting!
