Peacock butterfly

Remember my butterfly specimens that I blogged about for my living room gallery wall?
I finally got around to crafting a Blue Morpho inspired art piece.

DIY artwork butterfly peacock feather  Just Peachy, Darling
I used a dollar store frame, silver spray paint, six peacock feathers, and some aqua filler feathers.  I cut out a butterfly shape on cardstock, sprayed it with Spray Adhesive, stuck it to the glass, and sprayed it with silver paint.  Quickly remove the butterfly shape before the paint dries to avoid cementing it to the glass.  Once the paint was dried, I arranged the feathers underneath, and then carefully replaced the frame backing.  My butterfly isn't perfectly symetrical, but I think it's kind of charming.  I really love it with the navy blue wall, don't you?
