Painted Butterfly Canvas Bag & Research – Satleen Gill, 17

From Satleen, about her TeenNat project:

For my project I painted ten butterflies found in this region. The numbers next to each butterfly match with the scientific names of the butterflies, which I painted onto the straps of the bag. My inspiration to make this project was based on the fact that I just really love butterflies and how diverse they are with different colors, patterns, sizes, and are found basically everywhere. I also really like to paint so I decided to combine my interests in butterflies with my favorite creative outlet to create something practical. My favorite part of this project is probably the fact that I can actually use this bag in my everyday life rather than just do it on a regular canvas and have it sit on the wall and forget about it.
