I have plenty of birds at my feeders and lots of butterflies on sunny days. They provide a lot of entertainment in my backyard. This is my entry for this week's Compendium of Curiosities v. 2 challenge that features the Marbled Stains technique found on page 46. I don't know about you but I had a terrible time with this technique. This was my 3rd attempt and my marbling skills leave a lot to be desired. Oh well, with a bit more practice perhaps I can get the hang of it yet.
