The family and I took one last vacation of the summer to Santa Monica California over the Labor Day weekend. One of the things we enjoyed doing the most was collecting sea shells. My very favorite were the little ones that reminded me of butterflies. I knew I wanted to create something with them when I got home so I came up with this:
I used several different metallic paints on the tails as well as a little glitter glue on the tails. The last thing I had left to find were the shells and I found those on the beaches of Santa Monica.
