Project Description

Paint a page full of colorful butterflies in watercolor or gouache, or both. You can paint a page with several small ones, or paint a really big butterfly with lots of decoration in the middle of the page.

You can choose how many colors and the amount of decoration you want to add. I’m excited to see your results!
