Doodle Page - Insects

The next doodle page arrived a day or two before my Mum’s birthday. One of her gifts was tied with a butterfly ribbon. Mum kindly gave me a length to use on Isabell’s insect page.

I added a few beads to create their bodies.

I wanted the butterflies to look like they were in flight so I distorted the ribbon and stitched beads under some of their wings so that they would be raised from the page.

Happy Stitching

The ribbon makes a fantastic flight of butterflies - lovely!

They are indeed flying! So clever to put the beads underwing and to snag some ribbon from your Ma...I bet she'll give you the rest some day if you're a good girl...
