Butterfly in Collage – for Revati

9 Feb

A birthday card for my sister, Revati. Using a photograph for reference, I hunted through magazine pages to find the right bits of printed paper from advertisements and other photos. Finally touched it up a little bit with pen, colour-pencil and pastel marks.

Card - for Revati

What do caterpillars do?

Nothing much but chew and chew.

What do caterpillars know?

Nothing much but how to grow.

They just eat what by and by

Will make them be a butterfly

But that is more than I can do,

However much I chew and chew.
