What a fun project and a style that can be applied elsewhere. I really appreciate the clear steps and the use of native brushes to create the watercolor effect.  Love the texture brush that is so easy to apply the paper effect. I added a drop shadow to create the illusion of the butterfly above the paper-- a request of my husband who really liked watching the process for this project as I created it. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I love it! 

I also chose a plant that this particular butterfly's larva would eat! So there's some authenticity to the page.

Loved this class!  Thank you.
