I had to smile when i saw that leaflin posted her beautiful butterfly piece because i had already done this peice to post here! :) It's not the greatest photo but it's pen and ink, pastel, a bit of acrylic in the clouds and finished off with a touch of gold leaf.

Cheryl,

The mixture of mediums in this piece is very well balanced. It gives the whole work an elegance. Mixed medium and alternative mediums has a freeing quality about it that you just can't get working in one medium. The gold leaf is a great touch. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great piece Cheryl.
The butterflies are good representatives of the freedom of mixed and alternative mediums.
I love the use of the gold leaf.

Thank you for your complement :)
