The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough.
This is a little altered board book.
I wanted to share with you
how I altered a childrens board book
This book measures about 4 inches square,
but they do come in many sizes.
I bought the childrens board book at the thrift store for 19 cents.
I found quite a few board books for less than 39 cents a piece.
I then gessoed the pages,
added watered down acrylic paint and let it run where it may.
After the paint dried
I added some butterfly stickers
that I also found thrifting.
To add to it I decided to put in some
I found a lot of them in my quote collection.
This is one of the inside pages.
I put the largest butterfly sticker I had on the front cover.
Lastly I sprayed matte acrylilc sealer on all the pages and the cover.
I could continue to embellish this little book,
but decided to call it finished.
This little book went to my daughter Amy,
as part of her birthday present.
She's not a little girl anymore,
in fact she will be getting married this year.
but she still loves butterflies,
and so do I.
