I made this little assemblage piece for geekgirl in the Holiday Present Swap. I had never made any assemblage art before, but decided to give it a go for the swap since geekgirl likes the style so much. I started by just gluing whatever I could find down onto a wooden cradle board type of frame. I was lost and thought it looked like junk until I found this weird piece of metal on a construction site and picked it up.
I brought it home and was looking at a way to incorporate it and inspiration struck me! It dawned on me that it looked like the trail of a butterfly! And thus, this piece was born. I used several different shades of blue on the background to try to emulate a starry sky and attached the butterfly and it’s “trail” with wire to the background.
Unfortunately, the box never delivered and seems to be lost, but I’m hoping that this butterfly is out flying somewhere!
