" I Never Saw Another Butterfly" Project

In an effort to remember the Children Lost, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies.
The butterflies will eventually comprise a breath-taking exhibition, currently scheduled for Spring 2014, for all to remember. The Museum has already collected an estimated 900,000 butterflies.

My blog friend Tee at The Altered Paper has all the information on her blog if you would like to join in on making 2D butterflies to remember those lost in the Holocaust.
Tee also has links on her blog for free templates for butterflies. 
Here is the direct link to the butterfly project if you are interested in sending on your own to the Museum in Houston Texas. 
Here are my two butterflies I will be sending to Tee. I may try to sneak in a couple more if time permits but June is really flying by.

 Both butterflies are not painted on the canvas the canvas is a backdrop only. The second butterfly will be in my next post for the Summer of Colour 2012.
Thanks for dropping by.
