A little different of an approach for me.  I have been experimenting with applying a gesso and matte medium mixture to my paper before applying paint.  It give is a more textured appearance. Before applying any paint, I used butterfly stencils (using cardboard) and sponged on the mixture, to echo the butterfly on her shirt and play on the metamorphosis theme.
