I was hoping to do a design or collage using vintage maps but all I had access to chopping up was an old road atlas from 1989! I then had the idea to create a piece of work with a vintage feel and that took the form of an antique butterfly collection. I chopped up bits from my road atlas to make the butterflies, on some of them I embellished by stitching on scraps of fabric as I like the mixed media result. Other butterflies I worked on in Photoshop and then put them all together for my own vintage-modern butterfly collection. For a bit of quirkiness I have named some of the butterflies after favourite songs and also other bits of text which mean something to me.
PLEASE NOTE: this is a small print version of the larger butterfly fabric and consequently the little names under the butterflies are too small text to read but it still looks rather nice.
Sorry for any inconvenience, this design is no longer for sale. Designers who sell and earn commissions have been asked to complete tax return forms and as a designer in the UK this would create a very complicated situation for me which would not be worth doing based on the small amounts I would earn. My designs may at some point be on sale in the UK.
