butterfly 1 WEB

My lovely blogfriend Deb Turtle is collecting butterflies for the Houston Holocaust museum for a planned exhibit of butterflies to represent the 1 500 000 children who died during the holocaust.  Read all the details in her post here.

Deb asked her friends to contribute using their medium of choice.  So I opened up PSE and set to playing with some digital art

I’m going to print them out at 5 x 7, back them with plain coloured paper and cut each out.

As Rinda said in her butterfly post – this is set to become a blog event.  Looking forward to seeing butterflies all over the blogasphere in coming months.  Thanks Deb for the prompt.
