sparkles and lights and glowing butterflies

by Andrea O'Connell

Photography and mixed media design is a wonderful art form that I have only just begun to experiment with.

I have much to learn about using Photography to illustrate unusual patterns and images that lie beneath what we see with our normal vision.   The great thing about tools to enhance photography is its ability to bring out what wouldn’t normally be seen.

I just created the below image using my photograph of a butterfly, underneath the altered one.   I am going to continue to experiment with this… it’s such fun!

The original photo I took with my Canon Rebel (I cropped the above image just a bit):
