Paper, napkins, and fabric butterfly

One blog that I newly discovered, is the wonderful blog of Diane DIANE KNOTT`S MUSINGS
She is doing the most beautifull carts and tags, and alwayes encouraging all others, to use her ideas, and tecnic, trying to make our own little art pieces , in our own way.
And as I love all she is doing, I had to try making my own butterfly after her directions

I made it using handmade paper as the buttom layers, and only used two layers of the butterfly pattern.On that I pasted small pieces of fabric,-napkins,-and scripts from an old book
I like the the soft look the napkins, and fabric is given, and it was so wonderfull trying this.

Please visit Diane, for futher explanations on doing your own little
butterfly, and see how wonderfull she uses them.


My giveaway is running till 14 april so there is plenty of time for
those who wants to try their luck on my doll......

Thanks to all of you who already commented ,Makes me so happy to know ,that
you all would be happy to win my doll.

Wishing you a very happy easter, dear friends
Hugs and love, Dorthe

Dorthe your burrerfly is very beautiful, Nej hvor er den da bare sød Dorthe, og så fint den er dekoreret, man skulle måske prøve at lave nogle til at pynte i blomsterne.
Kærlig hilsen Anni

Dorthe, Your butterfly is beautiful and I too want to visit your friends blog to get the instructions. I wanted to ask what your Blog name means. I thought it might be "The Little Lady." Hope you don't mind my trying to guess.
