Butterflies have flown!

After a bit of work on photoshop the butterflies have flown & turned into guess what...........?

A new pattern for some Spoonflower fabric. I've created the design for the next Spoonflower contest which goes live next Thurs if anyone wants to vote. The subject for the contest was maps and I have taken that in the form of cutting up an old road atlas and making the butterflies with it. 

I have displayed the design in a traditional butterfly collection style and named them.  I've only named a few of the butterflies with their traditional names such as Red Admiral. I've named them mostly after favourite songs and other things which mean something to me. So we have a Blue Monday butterfly by New Order, Golden Brown - The Stranglers, Norwegian Wood - Beatles, a Fisherman's Blue all time favourite by The Waterboys & a Red Cuillin which is one of my favourite mountains on Skye.
There's even a Vanilla Black butterfly which used to be my favourite veggie restaurant in York (since moved it to London) & I have a Blue Stilton butterfly. You could go on and on with this.

I think I might have some of this fabric printed as I'm quite liking the result.
