Batty Specimens

Lookie, lookie what I made from ALL recycled stuff!  I found 3 of these frames in a trash pile a few years ago.  And all the "batty specimens" were punched out of trash!  (Some advertisements and some packaging for some stuff I bought.)  My bats aren't as pretty as the ones I was inspired by at Tatertots and Jello, but I still think they are cute.  I tried to get the best picture possible, but lighting is horrible everywhere in my house!

I painted the frame black.  And since I was also inspired by my butterflies, I wanted a glass background and I wanted to mirror the pattern a bit.  Between sessions hunched over Sally (my newest sewing machine) I will stare at my butterflies and I am taken far away.  So when I saw this project at Tatertots and Jello, I just knew I had to have one, too!

Happy Halloween!!!

**Update:  I forgot to mention that the glue on the bats was from my recent treasure gift.  The glue that holds the back glass on is fingernail polish!  (It has to be used for something!  LOL)**
