Butterflies Under Glass

I have been excited to share this project because I love how they turned out. It was a special order that I went crazy on. This is for a customer that has a miniature scene of a world traveler and butterfly collector.. It is also steam-punk style. So these are fantasy creations from my own mind. I have big plains for these butterflies. In the weeks ahead I will be showing more butterfly projects.. I don't want to give too much away right now..







I really like this one above.. It has a little glass slide like you might put under a magnifying glass. But i gave it my own spin..
I while back I did make some similar magnifying lenses with test-tubes but these are the first with butterflies..


Most of these butterflies are Jeannetta Kendall kits. Some I have made myself.. But hey are so freeking hard to cut out..hehehe and Jeannetta's kits are so beautiful.

I will have more butterfly items in the next few weeks.. I really have a lot of fun special orders I am working on this month.. I will aslo be sharing photos of the open book "help name my book store" contest very soon.
