Flutter by my Butterflies

The most comments on the previous post said to add the butterflies.  So I did some more fusible applique to make the butterflies.  They seemed to get lost in the design more than I liked, so I went multimedia on this piece.  
I took the piece to my painting area and got paint and fabric medium. I used the paint to change the color and tones of the butterflies.  What you can't see in the picture is that I added some paint that shimmers and sparkles in with the colored paint. This will be a fun wall hanging.  
Monet's Garden with flowers and butterflies.
Now, all I need to do is back it, quilt it and add a hanging sleeve.

That is pretty! I have fabric paint but I never think to use it...my creativeness needs a makeover or something.
