It’s amazing how you can transform an old river rock into something absolutely stunning and that’s exactly what she shows us how to do in her step by step tutorial. You never know what you can do until you try!
Most of us have rocks laying around, somewhere in our community or you can purchase rocks inexpensively at a craft store. A lot of times you can find good ones down by a creek bed.
This is a very inexpensive gift idea and such a cool gift at that! These give such an illusion of being real… I took a double when I first saw these!
I love painted rocks. I’ve painted a lot of them and given them as gifts. I’ve painted butterflies, flowers, sayings, people’s pets and more. This butterfly rock is definitely one of my favorites! Everybody loves butterflies!
I have never taken art lessons and my artistic abilities have gotten better from all of the practice I’ve gotten. It’s all about just jumping in and trying something new! I was really surprised that I had any artistic abilities, but was rather pleased to see that I could actually paint something that looked like what I was attempting to paint!
I painted this butterfly rock as a gift for a friend of mine who had a birthday just recently and it makes a great paper weight. Although, she keeps this rock sitting right beside her front door. I painted a big one for her, so it looks pretty cool where she put it.
Watch how Annette Zander paints this beautiful butterfly on a rock in her step by step tutorial so you can give it a try…you may just be surprised that it’s not that difficult!
