Of Butterflies and Birds

Some recently completed projects;
First, I found this neat old peely frame, removed the back along with an old photo, leaving the old glass and rusty nails. I used a gel medium to apply the vintage butterfly image and text that says "The Life of a Butterfly".
Next is an upcycle of a pair of old wooden plaques. I gave them a new coat of creamy white paint, added the background paper and then vintage bird images that corresponded with the colors. Images are from The Graphics Fairy.
