Ohhhhh how beautiful! I love how you started with the graphic fabrics underneath and added a sheer layer over it. That is really awesome! The chickens and the butterflies look neat. This paper cloth is going to be spectacular when you cut it up. Can't wait! What a fun time with artsy friend. Thanks for sharing!
