We were required to create something that was 12x12 so that it would be easier to combine them all. My original idea was a copper-plated contraption with buttons, bells and whistles, but somewhere along the line I finished up with a butterfly.
The main part is grungepaper covered with tissue and painted to give texture. The contrasting colour was then cut out to reveal the 'workings'. These are copper sheet that's been put through an embossing machine. The background is a 12x12 canvas; painted with acrylics and distressed. The copper patches are embossing paste and brads.
The title is from Barclay James Harvest.
I've also created a Cinnabar Moth in the same style, but I'm not as pleased with it as the butterfly, and didn't have the same buzz when I was working on it.
