Glittered Butterfly Art by Fawnda Norman

We are expecting a baby girl VERY soon! So I need to get a move on with decorating her room!

For my next glitter project I am going to show you how to make A SUPER cute and easy piece of art! I have always love butterflies and that is the theme of the nursery.

Here is what you will need:

Blank Canvas


Vinyl Stickers

Art Glitter (#95 Summer Sea and #230 Halo)

Here is how I made it:

1. I painted the canvas the back ground color(s) that I wanted.

I wanted it to look the morning sky turning from purple to blue. I started out with Dark purple at the bottom and added white to fade up to reach a little below the middle. Then, at the top I started with the teal blue and added white to fade down. I kept the paint thick so that I could blend the colors on the canvas. Once I got to the middle I painted up with the purple and down with the blue and over lapped to blend. Again, I kept the paint thick to help blend the colors.

You could keep it really simple and just do one color too! :)

Let your paint dry

Place your vinyl stickers on your canvas when your paint is fully dry. You can move them around a bit to get the right placement.

Now to add the glitter. I worked in small sections to add the glitter.

I added the glue, then sprinkled with glitter and tapped off the excess.

I used two colors of glitter on my mine you can use as much glitter as you want!

(I used Art Glitter #95 Summer Sea and #230 Halo)

Allow time for the glue to dry and shake off the excess glitter, even though you tapped off most of it the still will be a little more to tap off.

Hang it up and enjoy!

Super easy and super cute
