This has been going through several evolutions. The first layer was gesso with a bit of Studio Calico mists. I added and took off some alcohol ink…scribbled in the wet gesso/mist/ink layer before it dried. The butterflies were made separately and then adhered- I think at first I thought to have them stand up and lift away but liked the flattened look. It sort of feels done…and then it doesn’t. I should have taken a picture of the first two or three layers…it is always fascinating to me where things end up.
It is always a precious gift to get lost in the creativity. Happy for you!
