Upcycling at its best-2

Hello people,
As promised am back to show you what I did to my broken painting frame. Well frame was intact but glass got broken while shifting. I had a bag full of toilet tissue roll's left over cardboard rolls. My home walls are light yellow so I selected blue and black shade for my project. I colored the roll with blue Asian paint on outer side and black Asian paint from inside. Once dried I cut the roll into 5 pieces. You will get an eye shape piece. Make as many as u want for the design. Colored the inside of frame also in blue shade. I drew design on white sheet and placed the rolls over the design and joined all the rolls using hot glue gun. Made swirls from blue craft sheet. Once complete design is ready attached it to the frame and secured it with glue gun. Attached small mirrors to enhance the beauty.The single flower is rose which was extra while I made my last project" up cycling at its best". The butterflies are a gift from my aunt.  Its interesting to know that the butterflies are handmade from some birds feathers.

 Entering it to following challenges

Hope you all had fun.
