I certainly do find beauty in simplicity! This butterfly is a good example of that. I can see it done in so many different color palettes and maybe even wing shapes. The artisan says in the tutorial that "experimentation is the key to perfection" and I agree! This butterfly can be used as an embellishment on a scrapbook layout, a greeting card or a mixed media canvas. Thanks for sharing!

I love how this project looks so bright and colorful. This would be perfect to use to celebrate the start of spring!

I think quilling can produce some really pretty things and this butterfly is one of them. I don't know why I quit quilling, but this has convinced me to take it up again. The materials are inexpensive and you can use other papers if you want to go to the trouble of cutting them carefully.
