Hidden butterflies

You need:

  1. white drawing paper A4 size tempera paint
  2. brushes jar with water
  3. paper towels
  4. glue
  5. scissors

Divide the paper with small stripes in different sections. Colour the sections with mixed colours using two different colours tempera and white. In the example is chosen for red and blue and white, resulting in different tints of purple and pink. Do not dilute the paint, to be sure to get bright colours.

Fold a second drawing sheet and draw one or more butterflies against the fold. Cut these butterflies. Paint them in the same colours as the background, leaving an edge from 1 cm white. When dry, paint white stripes around the body of the butterfly and around the decorations.

Paste the background on a larger piece of white paper. Then paste the butterflies. Paste only the body and fold the wings a bit up for a 3d effect.
