Message: "A cheerful heart is good medicine" (Proverbs 17:22)
This piece of art is placed inside a shadowbox frame of 25x25 cm, behind an acrylic glass window.
All the elements of this work of art are handmade.
Each flower is made from paper strips of 1mm width, that I roll on a quilling tool in order to form the petals. All the flowers and leaves are stemmed one by one with wire that I wrap in crepe paper. The leaves are made by using a special type of paper that I paint. The butterfly is also made from 1mm paper strips which I roll on a tool.
The background, on which the whole composition is glued, is hand-painted by me.
A lot of hours and patience are put into creating such a piece, taking up to 40 hours to make one.
