For this project, I used what I had in hand: MICROSOFT WORD! haha Call me crazy, but I don't have any kind of picture formating software and I sometimes amaze myself at what I can do with Word.
First, I found pictures of real butterflies with a white backgroung. Nothing really specific, I think I Googled "Butterfly".
Then, I started playing with the photo Artistic Effects. I ended up selecting "Paint Brush".
I just loved the effect. I found two more colorful butterflies and did the same. Then I printed them in glossy paper at Pricesmart (AKA the cheapest place I could find hehe) and used some frames I'd bought on sale at Aliss specifically for this project.
They're just what I was looking for and I love how they look in our TV room/office.
