This is the photo for the June challenge at Interept This! June was my month to pick the photo. I took this one at a Chicago area forest preserve. We had been having a cold spring after a much too long and cold winter. Finally the weather turned warm and everything became green and lush very quickly. I am sure this butterfly was as happy to have a summery day as I was!
Today starts the reveal of our efforts. Lucky me I get to go first!!
Pop on over to Interpret This! to see what I managed to make of it despite my butterfly mistake as told in previous post!
hoo boy. When I mess up I do it so well! I have been working away on my IT piece and went to double check the colors of the butterfly from the photo and something did not look quite right. Yep. The colors were just fine. It was the butterfly that was not. WTF. I know just what I did. I was in the basement ( my 'studio' ) and the computer is upstairs where the photo could be found on it. I drew the butterfly out. Did that right in front of the computer. I took said drawing with me downstairs and laid it down on the desk with all the other sketches of stuff and well, I picked up the wrong one and commited it to the cloth. Did I double check it? Um, noooo. Soooo, I now have a nearly finished IT piece with a butterfly that is not quite right. Not only that but the photo is mine! Embarassing isn't it? Ah well. I will finish this, mistake and all, as time will not permit a new start. Sheesh. I will now go back downstairs and organize my drawings....right after I finish the IT piece. ( see how easy it is to get organized! Ha! ).
